A good time was had by all!

Hello Blogland!! Is everyone having a wonderful weekend??? It started with glorious weather but has turned cold and rainy. UGH!!

We had our annual Christmas Open House yesterday! We had about 50+ guests through-out the day. Many were texting that the were stuck home with the bug going around. The hubster had a touch of it on Friday-and there is nothing more tragic than a man who is sick!!! LOLOLOLOL  We missed some of our regulars but enjoyed all who came!  The Diva was is her glory being oohed and aaaahhhhed over!!!

I wanted to make a fashion statement so this is what I wore:

I think the statement I'm makinfg is "Insane"!!!!

MrBill was attired in his usual “fur” and the Diva broke out her velvet and glitter Holiday dress:

Ready to PAR-TAY!!!
