Our Holiday Open House

Yesterday my parents held a holiday open house for our neighbors, mom's friends, mom's family, and Marsha came as well. It was a really nice time and it was nice seeing Marsha again.

My roast beef sandwich, chicken meatballs, and macaroni and cheese.

Mom planned a game with a saran wrap ball filled with prizes. The object of the game is to roll the dice after a number is called, unwrap the ball until the person next to you rolls the said number, when that said number is rolled the ball passes to the next person. You're supposed to wear rubber gloves, but we didn't. The object is to unwrap the ball and collect the grand prize in the center. Everyone enjoyed it.

And my Swedish friend, Olli, even sent me a beautiful holiday card! It was filled with confetti and when I opened the card, it went everywhere. Total surprise!


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Good news - your new post jumped to the top of my "leader board." Looks like the problem has been corrected.

    It looks like your kitty is fond of Marsha, too. I enjoyed seeing your tree and other holiday decorations. That's a hearty supper for a cold soon-to-be winter day. It turned chilly here in Florida the last few days and we needed to switch from A/C to heating for a change. Now it's warming up again. No white Christmas for us! :) I never saw a greeting card that sprays confetti. That really must have been a surprise.

    Thanks for showing me highlights of your holiday open house with family and friends (and kitty). Have a wonderful Christmas week ahead, dear friend Jessica Marie!

    1. Hey Shady,

      I fiddled with my settings today - I had to change the URLs for the feeds. I'm glad it worked!

      It'll be 70 degrees here on the 24th, then 56 on the 25th. No white Christmas here either. Our weather has been a roller coaster lately.

      The holiday party was really nice and I'm glad everyone enjoyed themselves. Have a nice Christmas week as well, dear friend Shady!

  2. It was a nice party 🎉. I loved the chicken meatballs! Jess, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. I loved your mom's chicken meatballs! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas 🎄

    1. Thanks, Marsha! Same to you and your family.
