The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Fondue Party

My mom is the queen of parties.  When we come home, we usually have at least one if not two theme parties.  We all love decorating and crafting and we LOVE celebrating, so just about any occasion is a good enough reason to plan a party.  Over Christmas, we started out with a fondue party.  Mom planned cheese fondue with veggies, and chocolate fondue with desserts.  We started out with oil in the fondue pot to fry our own meats and cheese balls.  Sounds like fun, right?  

It was not fun.  

It was scary and dangerous and hazardous to our health and well-being.  

Hot oil popped and spurted and splattered all over us.  When we were finally daring and brave enough to fry a tiny piece of chicken, we found out it tasted gross.  Oh, and I forgot to mention that the whole house smelled rotten McDonald's and week old greasy carnival food.

Good thing the good party count is still 783 to 1.

Merry Christmas!

Mark and I finally bought ourselves a nice camera for Christmas.  I am obsessed with taking these blurry pictures of Christmas goodness.  Who knew blurry could be so beautiful?

I still haven't graduated into being a real adult and sending out Christmas cards.  Sorry, friends.  Maybe another year?  For now, here's me wishing you a very Merry and Christ-filled Christmas online.  Have a great one, folks!

All the Single Ladies...

...if you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it.  - Beyonce

Oh...I mean...

A woman's heart should be so close to God that a man should have to chase Him to find her.  - C.S. Lewis

There.  That was WAY deeper.  I like that better.

Just this past week, I had a bunch of single ladies over.  My friend, Stacey, who is older and wiser than me, talked to us about stewarding singleness well and about being the Bride of Christ.  It was lovely.  We ate yummy food, talked about the Lord, and had a Favorite Things exchange.  

I have officially turned into my mother.  She is a party planning fanatic.  Why not turn everything into a cute and fun party?  Why NOT?
