Every February our church ladies have a "Secret Sister Revealing Party". We find out who had our name for the previous year. Some ladies don't participate but are still invited to the party. Those who want to participate again, enter their name, and then draw one name and that person is your "secret sister" for a year. You are supposed to pray for them through the year and giving gifts is optional.
Angie and Susan planned the event this year. They planned a "Garden Party" at Angie's house, but as the day got closer, the weather looked less and less desirable. They were forecasting rain, wind and severe t-storms. So the party was indoors instead!
Tables set up for the 20 some ladies.
Visiting before the meal was ready.
We had salad, bread sticks and yummy broccoli soup.
Angie & Susan served the soup and drinks.
I didn't get a pic of the dessert table, but we had delicious chocolate cake with snickers in the icing, chocolate dipped strawberries and fruit pizza.
Tamara and Maria ate on the back porch.
Pretty flowers on each table~
Jasmine <3 ~enjoying the sweets!
I had my friend Yolie's name.....and turns out she had mine! :)
She gave me a beautiful embroidered towel/washcloth set, a pretty pink scarf and some cake decorating tools! :) Tamara and I are going to try our hand at cake decorating. We've been doing some research about using fondant, but I think we will start with icing and see how that goes, first! :)
Looking forward to a not-so-busy week. Tomorrow we have another Chemistry co-op class, and Saturday our church is going on a 16 mile bike hike in Tallahassee. And then Sunday a group of us ladies from church, and a few from GA, are going into the women's prison for a chapel service. I need to finalize what I am going to share. We also have to sing a few songs. The inmates already requested "Jesus Signed my Pardon". We sang that last time and many had never heard it before and loved it! :)
