This may be posting a little late, but you know how the Christmas holidays go. Lots of family things take top priority. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and are now enjoying the fresh start of a new year. Here are the pics from our meeting in December. Thank you Jeri for hosting. Your house is the perfect spot for all of us and our annual Christmas buffet!
January's meeting (Jan. 28) will be at Rachel's.
