Goodbye Winter - Hello Spring Party

Last Tuesday, 2-17-09, the ladies of the neighborhood came together for a Goodbye Winter-Hello Spring party. We figure any excuse is a good excuse to visit, eat, and have fun!

Erica and Debbie getting the party started. Notice that Debbie has on her very proper gardening gloves?....SHE'S ready to get going with spring!

Kika and her beautiful smile.

What's a party without some yummies. We also had tea, coffee and WINE!

Carmen, Marilyn and Marilyn.
Great picture, but you should have seen us trying to get it. Take four!!

Debbie H., Dianna, and Linda

Bridget and Debbie M. That's Joanne and Kika in the background.

Neighborhood GIRLS GONE WILD!!

(yes, we did have a lot of fun)

Marie and Karen

Debbie and the "Box Disclaimer" Remember that?!

We had a gift steal where everyone brought in a little gift and then we each got to choose one...Then STEAL it! THAT was the fun part. Oh Yeah!

There were lots of beautifully wrapped gifts, but I forgot to take pictures of them. Here, Kika is opening up a beautiful candle with a lilac scent and a little butterfly charm inside. Too cute!

Yummy bubble bath and lotions for Marilyn.

Bridgett gets a GREAT Texas bird book and a cute little bird feeder.

At the end of the party, everyone got to choose one (or two) little pansy flowers to plant in their garden to help welcome spring.
I took TONS of pictures, but only a few really came out. And, as you can see, even some of those didn't come out very well. Dumb camera!! LOL!
Hope you all had fun!! I know I did. Thank you, girls!
