New Years Eve...

We had a nice, quite dinner at our good friend Linda Marie's house. She made a wonderful dinner starting with homemade french onion soup that can rival any restaurant's version. We also had shrimp with linguine and her wonderful homemade red sauce. For dessert, coffee with Baily's and whipped cream and brownies. YUM!

After dinner we hung out and played the TV edition of the DVD game Scene It. If you've never played this game, you have to pick one up. It's interactive with the TV and lots of fun. We have the movie version too, but the TV sitcom version seemed a little easier...I guess that proves I do watch way too much TV. When Dick Clark's show started, we cracked open the champagne and rang in 2006...hopefully the year Joe and I become parents.

When I first sat down for dinner, there was a little package at my table setting from Linda's Aunt Diane. They were these adorable little embroidered shoes, which are magnets, and are handmade by local women in Yunnan. She got them through her church from an agency called Threads of Yunnan which is a ministry designed to raise the standard of living for countryside women in the Yunnan province. It was really nice of her to think of me, and Linda, thank you for a very nice evening!
