On December 11th we all met for our annual Christmas card exchange, luncheon and secret Santa gift giving. A great time was had by all. Not only do we know how to letter, we also know how to cook! We always eat very well when we have a potluck. The Christmas Luncheon seems to just step that up a few notches!
Lovely roses for our hostess Val.

And while the food was being prepared, everyone had to take a turn in the family room, sorting their cards into the correct mail bags.
