I've decided that sometimes the best parties are the ones thrown together last minute....like, less that 2 hours notice! There are very few expectations. The party is what it is and its simple. And for some crazy reason, sometimes we get better attendance than if we try for weeks to work a date out for everyone's schedule.
Tonight my family was planning on spending some time with our beloved neighbors before the left for Florida til March. BUT...when others found out, they too wanted to participate! So, we moved the gathering to our home and 22 people from the 'hood came!
Good beer ( lemonade too)
lots of pizza from Pizza Hut, and things pulled out from people's fridges! It was perfect!
