not another boring and cold winter evening

Tonight, the kids each received an invitation to a Dinner Party. The rule: they had to dress fancy.


We primped with Aretha cheering us on in the background. All we were missing were some of Olivia's boas.

A. and L. took over the camera for awhile.








there was dancing...


fine wine... (i mean, juice)

and delightful conversation.

Ella Fitzgerald helped set a quieter mood for dinner, and everyone was simply charming. Or, as L. put it, "Oooh, A. you are magnificent."

Well, well done. This blog is continuing to raise the stakes. R.'s dinner jacket photo is triumphant.

The gentleman was so serious about the evening. BUT the ladies were just plain silly! I must say that their footwear was... magnificent! {I 'specially liked your choice of menu. My favorite for every fancy dress occasion!}

the menu? well, we can't very well eat venison EVERY day...
We settled for whole wheat apple pancakes with a fruit side.

R's dinner jacket pose looks like some kind of strange, vegan seder.

I'm sooooo sad we missed this! I would've had the perfect dress and everything. Gotta do this again...
