First of all, I just want to thank you for your precious comments on my last post. They totally made my day! Don't worry, Megan, I will make sure you are far away from any and all Santa conventions in the future!! ;)
Well, here we are Wednesday -- I can't believe it!! Today, I thought I would recap a very special lunch I was able to attend on the Wednesday before Christmas. My dad and his brothers hosted a sweet time at the Zodiac Room in downtown Neiman Marcus. It was so special to get to see these precious family members right before Christmas!

Three adorable girls!
I loved the beautiful Christmas trees

Then we had some major decisions to make about dessert!
What delectable delights!
Ashley and Rosalie weighed their choices very carefully ;)
So many tasty treats!
Looks like Ashley made her choice!
I enjoyed a macaron!!
Then, Grandmommy opened a Christmas gift.
Our whole group -- boy howdy, I sure love these folks!

We sure missed Megan, Edwin, and Mac, but were excited that we would get to see them soon!

Then, we spent some time in the children's area.
Caroline gave Ashley a few pointers on the pink piano.
And Ashley enjoyed strumming the guitar a bit.
Loved the whimsical Christmas decor!
Ashley tickling the ivories!
What an incredible afternoon!
Thank you so much for this wonderful gift!!
The next day I got to meet Grandmommy, Uncle Byrd and the girls for lunch at Plain and Fancy. Delish!!
Also, while home, I took this picture of the oak tree in Grandmommy's front yard.
And this verse just came to mind...
"They will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display his glory." Isaiah 61:3
Hope you are having a good week! I'm so thankful my books from UPS just arrived, so I'm off to read a bit for my class tomorrow. :) Toodles!
