They went all out and prepared some lovely dishes for us.
Speaking of dishes! Oh my goodness, I am in love!!!
Eileen has a complete set of Johnson Brothers Friendly Village dishes that she inherited from her mother-in-law.
Aren't they beautiful! They are perfect for Christmas!
I love her red napkins and ruby crystal napkin rings!
Everything is so festive and so beautiful!
Eileen's house is so pretty! She has decorated every corner.
She likes to decorate with garland. You will notice that there is evergreen garland everywhere! I love the effect it makes!
Here's their pretty tree!
She has lots of birds, birdhouses,berries and natural woodsy looking Christmas decorations.
She decorated their tree with lots of red and white and she used berry garland.
It's so beautiful!
Here's her cozy kitchen!
I love all of her copper molds hanging on the wall. This is a neat view of the stair case from the kitchen.
I love this cozy little guest room!
She's decorated it in a country romantic style with lots of pillows. I would love to be a guest in this guest room!
Here's the girls visiting in her pretty living room.
Brenda, Kathleen, Eileen and Virginia.
Now I'll get in the picture, that's me with Katheleen, Eileen and Virginia. We were missing two of the girls that are normally with us. We had a little gift exchange (which was a $10.00 gift that we had to find at Goodwill!), a great meal, great conversation and a lovely evening. I feel so blessed with my girlfriends!
