I've mentioned one of my small groups before, the Rather Bees. We had our Valentine's Party tonight and had a great time!! We started off with some delish munches...you can see them in the background...
Had some show and tell and visiting...
And played a fun RLC game with $5 gift cards...(the dice are being thrown on that tray with a towel to cut the noise). So that everyone got to keep a gift card, we changed the rules to TRADE instead of give away as the dice tell us. It worked great and was lots of fun!!
Then we exchanged Secret Pal gifts! We leave the gifts by the door on a coffee table as we enter the house so the recipients don't see who brought the gifts inside, thus keeping it a secret who the secret pals are until the reveal at the Christmas party. Everyone who is participating in Secret Pals this year received a gift at this special evening...all but Janet that is! Here she is discovering that her gift is an empty plate with a bow on it! What you say? Yes, her plate was empty! If you can guess WHY her plate is empty I will draw a name from those who are correct and send the winner a few fat quarters in honor of Valentine's Day!
I love having the Bees over for a visit and some stitching time. My hubs is out of town for the next three weeks and having friends over really helps make the weeks fly by till he's home for the weekends. Ginger hasn't had much company here since her leg was broken and she really enjoyed visiting with all the dog lover's in the group! They were all impressed how well she was walking around...looking for dropped goodies on the floor, she was walking around lots finding all the yummy crumbs!! She even snatched someone's chocolate candy when they looked away! She brought her toy in and layed in the center of the floor during the game, thinking she was a part of the party! Looks like she's about back to normal now!
