Christmas Party at Mary's
Our annual Christmas party was held at Mary Pillsworth's house on Wednesday, December 5th. After a short social get-together, we all enjoyed a delicious potluck meal. Thanks, Vicki for cooking the turkey. After stuffing ourselves, we got down to the serious business of the gift exchange. and exchange it was! Once the gifts were opened, they were up for grabs. Everyone went home with an interesting gift, not usually the one they opened. As soon as we were all 'gifted', Santa arrived, warned us he was keeping an eye on us, and gave us all a stuffed stocking. It was a great way to end a very busy year with the EAA.
