It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

We had a very nice Open House on Sunday. The weather mostly cooperated, and it was only rainy - the mountain passes were all clear & safe, so we were able to have family from Grants Pass & Central Point make it as well.

I don't have any photos, but the snack table held:

Trevor's sourdough bread & spinach dip
Cranberry salsa & pita chips
Queso & tortilla chips
Veggie tray & onion dip
Lay's "Get your smile on" (Connor's wish)
Nacho Cheese Doritos
Trevor's fudge
Diana's spritz cookies
my stollen (german almond Christmas bread)
Rice Krispie treats (also Connor's wish)
Hershey kisses
Peanut M&M's

Lee made most of the dips.

We had family as I mentioned, friends from TOPS, neighbors, and friends from church. The kids had some friends over as well. This time around it went in some short spurts of about 6-8 people at a time, and we got the chance to just sit and talk a little more this year. We never know who will show, but pretty much anyone we know is invited :)

I think everyone had a good time, and we're still nibbling on the leftovers :) My favorite is the cranberry salsa. I should have made copies of the recipe. It's really pretty and tasty, and I will probably post that later...

Then on Monday I stayed in bed most of the day & read "Twilight." I'm hoping Diana & I can catch a matinee of the movie before the vacation time is over :)
