We've been wanting to have our friends and neighbors over for a get together to see all the work we've done on the house for a while now...we never really had an "Open House" when we moved in. So, this seemed like as good of a reason as any to have people over.
About 20 people (adults and kids) came by today and we had fun! The dogs played in the backyard and the adults watched football. Just like any other gathering in any other American household, everyone congregated in the smallest room in our house--the family room. That's just fine with me!
We had snacks, cake & ice cream (of course!) and opened gifts. I didn't really expect anyone to bring over gifts, but they did & it was fun! Haiku was oblivious to anything going on and just wanted to play wither her friends Libby & Fozzy (seen in the picture with Haiku--they just loved those hats!). Then she discovered people had brought her yummy treats and very large bones. She wanted to eat, eat, eat!
Anyway, we had lots of fun. The only downer was the Broncos lost. But the Rockies are in the playoffs (kind of)! That's big news around here!
