*Fondue Book Club*

{These girls are the BEST!!! I love you guys!}
{December Book Club is always filled with amazing treats!}

{I know you wish you could have been at Book Club after seeing all this yummy food!}

{Thank You Angie for making such a "scrump-did-ilee-ump-tious" Cheese Fondue!}
{Thank You Mindy May for doing the Delicious chocolate fountain!!! It made my night!}
{This highlighted plate of goodies was my favorite!}
{But in reality, ALL of it was pretty tempting!}


Thanks to everyone who came to Book Club (even though we didn't read a book this month!). The gift exchange turned out to be a great way to get to know some of you better! Who knew that Laura loved Neil Diamond so much? Who knew that April played Volleyball in High School? Who knew that I was born during a lunar eclipse? Good stuff to know!
As you can see the food was...amazing and I am still full! I just want you all to know how much I enjoy book club and that I look forward to our meetings every month. I have loved getting to know all you wonderful, sweet girls better over the months and years and I still can't believe that guys keep putting up with me month after month! I want to thank each and every one of you girls for all your support and contributions each month, book club wouldn't be the same without you! I love you all!!!

Sooooo sad I wasn't there. I didn't even get to go to Jon's work party. I had to stay home with two sick babies. Seeing those pictures really twists that knife.
Kelly, you are fabulous! Your book club is fabulous and I will be sure to not miss another!
I will just be sure to make up for lost time at the Rock the Nog Party!
Love ya,
