We just finished a GREAT party! The Christiansen's have a life-long family friend named Laurie McFarlane, and she threw us a classy brunch party for family and friends.
There are a thousand reasons to be grateful, but most important is that parties stress my dear mother-in-law out. As a loving gift to Ann, Laurie kindly took care of absolutely everything. Planning, cooking, special dishes, cleaning, tablecloths and all the festive accoutrements were handled.
The party brought family, friends, old friends and neighbors. We had a chance to share all about our trip, the challenges, the funny and more sobering sights, everything from the gastronomic to the gastrointestinal. It's amazing how the more mundane and even crass details of life are much more interesting to people if they happen somewhere exotic like Cambodia.
Anyway, we had a wonderful time, and we just wanted to say "Thank You" to Laurie.
