The Victorian Garden Party

While some of you were cooking out or on the lake on Memorial Day, several of we ladies were dining in the most elegant of fashions.
The Salad
There was a leek soup before the salad but I was still in such awe of just the decor surrounding me that I forgot to take a picture of it. After the salad came a WONDERFUL main course, which I was so ready to savor that I also forgot to photograph it! It was yummy! I did get a pic of desert, a lucious chocolate creme cake with raspberry sauce, but didn't include it here because honestly, the pic didn't do it justice! (and I've already got 9 pics anyway! LOL)
The salt and pepper were so pretty I had to get a pic! :0)
These are some ladies that were at my table. Miss J and Miss R. In the back, in the long white dress, is our gracious and lovely hostess and chef, Miss S.
This is the beautiful young lady whom I had the honor of sitting across from, Miss J.
Miss L and her daughter

Okay, y'all. Wendy and I both really didn't like ourselves in this pic, but it's the only one of us without all our kids in it! LOL So I HAD to post it. (Don't be mad Wendy! I cropped most of it, right? LOL!) Hey! I just realized you look taller than me. Were you wearing those boots that make you a giant? LOL NO FAIR!
Our Hostess

The lovely Miss Wendy (camera in tote).
The Entire Party

We had a wonderful time of food, fellowship, and NO KIDS, which we all know homeschool moms rarely get a night away from, LOL! It was the most fun I've had in a long time and without a doubt, it will be solid in my memory for years to come.

Thank you, Miss S.

Malachi Jackson's surgery was deemed a sucess. We will have to wait and see how well he will see and what other procedures he might have to have. He is no longer in pain.
Thank you for praying.

Nice party pictures.

Yes, good party pics. I don't like that first one of me AT ALL. But I won't gripe at ya.
The food was just fabulous, wasn't it? WOW. Sam is amazing.

You all look so pretty and it looks like something I wish I was smack dab in the middle of! So jealous here...

JPL- and you would have fit right in, I'm sure! It was definitely a can't miss experience! Maybe you could plan one at your place and invite some of those "a beka" people, LOL! ;0)
