Open House

Well we just finished having our first ever Christmas Open House. We had about 20 people come through, mainly from our congregation. We had hoped for more people to come, but we enjoyed the number we had. It turned out to be almost the perfect number for the evening. Next year we will probably do the Open House in the afternoon rather than the evening so we can run it a little longer. My perception of the evening was that it was not only enjoyable for us, but that all those who came enjoyed themselves as well. There was lots of conversations the whole time, and the people certainly didn't seem anxious to leave :) Unhappily, the dogs got rather excited when the people started to arrive so they needed to be put in the backyard. Eventually they started to insist on being let back in, so we set up the baby gate to keep them out of the living room, and they stood behind it with these mournful looks. Now we face one problem . . . What do we do with all the left over food?
