Tonight we gathered at the lovely home of Bob & Sharyn Halpin for an evening of fellowship and merriment. When the guests arrived, we started with a prayer and a toast with sparkling apple cider and cranberry gingerale. We enjoyed a variety of unique and delicious finger foods and desserts while catching up with old friends and making new ones.

For the gift exchange, each guest brought a wrapped gift. We always say to expect the unexpected, because gifts range from something just for laughs, something nice (but inexpensive), to something someone wants to foist-off (e.g., a pink cowgirl hat) This evening saw a variety of unexpected gifts, but the biggest (literally) surprise was a 60-year old weed whacker!
