The Party is Over.

The party is over. Yes, the big one is done for the year and it was an awesome success. I wasn't sure if the sushi thing was going to work but it did and everyone was impressed. I've used the same caterer for several years and had basically the same menu so this year we changed it up. In fact, one of the husbands commented that he was anticipating the same menu, and he loved it but that he thought I might change it up. He loved it and so did everyone else. My Mom-in-law was not as impressed but she endured. I was even successful in getting a few who had not tried sushi before to really enjoy it.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a whole lot of pics as the guests began arriving and I misplaced my camera. Oh well...the caterer is Joshua Vitt. VITTERS N-CREDIBLE EDIBLES

Now we clean up the mess, which wasn't much as the caterer did most of it, YEAH! B and B2 spent the night with the granddog Mondo and have headed home but will be back this evening. A is flying in from California for 7 wonderful days and tonight B and B2 will be back for a family meal. They all have requested fried chicken and gravy with mashed potatoes. I haven't fixed that is eons but will have a go at it. I've stripped the guest bed, put on a new heated mattress pad and will have it all ready for A. She just called and is waiting in line for security at the airport. I hope her flight has no hitches or delays.

This week will be another whirlwind of busy. Tonight, of course will be the family dinner. Tomorrow I get my teeth cleaned, workout, work and then we go to a wedding reception for my friends son. Tuesday, we were informed last night, is The Hubby's family get together (another one on Christmas Eve with less people) and of course Wednesday evening is the big one. We hopefully will make his family and then, maybe, possibly, we might try to make my dad's side of the family. The cousins, ick. It's just busy, busy, busy.

I love parties...felt like the proverbial fly on the wall! I love sushi but sometimes it doesn't love me. I keep trying though! Merry Christmas

This sounds like it was an awesome party. Wow! You are brave to serve sushi although I find more people liking them these days.
