Dinner and Wii

Last Sunday we had our old friends over for dinner and to christen our new Wii game! I don't know if it was the wine or the game, but we sure got our laugh on! The couple at the center top, Mary and Jack, had their home distroyed the day before Thanksgiving by fire! They lost everything..........OMG I can't even let my mind go is SOOOO SAD! They are doing fine, which is the kind of people they are.....full of Faith and thankful that no one was hurt! In our efforts to make things a little easier.....Mary had mentioned that she was really going to miss her recipes. We couldn't do anything for the lost recipes in her grandmothers handwriting, but we could help out. We got a darling new recipe book for her and each of us provided 10 of our favorite recipes to get her started. She was thrilled and immediately started going through them. Some of the best were provided by Rick, Penny's husband (in the middle with the red hair:) We sure had a good time in spite of the problems. Mary and Jack are both very funny and love a good laugh! They provided us with silliness all evening.

I know exactly how your friend feels. It is so sad to lose family things in a fire. I'm so sorry that this happened.
But- I am sure that your Wii was the cause of the good time together. We have one and love it. Especially bowling. My son is relentless and does this annoying little dance when he gets a strike! Evil toad. I'll have to start practicing while he is at work so that, maybe, I can beat him!

To be able to laugh after such a recent tragedy is a gift, indeed. They must be very special people. Looks like you had a blast that evening.

The recipe book is a wonderful idea. Our youngest daughter and her husband lost everything in a fire about 12 years ago. Thankfully they weren't injured but it was a very difficult emotional time for them.

Wii intrigues me. I might have to check into it.

Did you get my note about the slipcovers, on the Hermann post?
