Winter Solstice Party '11

Yesterday evening, my mom hosted a lovely winter solstice party. (Like a Christmas party where you look at the moon.) 

Her house looked amazing, and there was a lot of seriously delicious food.

This is the dining room, where a lot of the food was. And there's Mom getting a shot of the shrimp.

The shrimp... This shrimp is my favorite. Mom has been making it for Christmas parties since I was a little kid. They're coated with olive oil and seasonings.

The beautiful and delicious citrus salad with avocado. I used to be leery of this, but fortunately for me I have come around. And I did my deviled eggs again as you can see in the background. Not pictured but amazing were: Becky's artichoke dip, Lucy's salad with pecans/craisins/feta, Amber's reuben dip, Morgan's reindeer balls, and Jodi's salmon/pesto dip. 

Here's me with my drink and my curly hair.

And here's my whole outfit.

Earlier tonight I was sitting here wondering how this party went. Next year I can come! I'm glad you posted about it. That chandelier in your mom's dining room is a show stopper.

You are precious and so is your curly hair! Don't fight it.

Yeah, ever since the wedding I'm no longer willing to spend time/energy fighting my curls. Not on a regular basis anyway.

I enjoyed seeing your Christmas card on Mom's mantle, and then reading the back-story the next day. It all happened in the right order. :)
