Son Of A...

Beautiful mother, that is how I would describe my husband. Tonight was my MIL's turn at dinner. The drive was treacherous with all this snow, and we were debating risking our lives, but the promise of Mary's brisket was like a beacon, lighting our way. And it did not disappoint! Tom was talking about it the whole way home, which made me hungry all over again. I am getting spoiled by all the great food. It is like Thanksgiving every Sunday, but without the turkey (I am possibly fixing turkey when it is my turn). Tom was in such a hurry to get home that we almost missed out on the dessert. I know, you should have seen my face-horrified. Thankfully, Mary saw the sadness, and fixed us a plate to take with us.
The best part was the game. It was a game of riddles, and it was more fun than my meager vocabulary could describe. All you need to know is that thanks to this game I increased my vocabulary by exactly four words. We did end up losing to Sara and Morgan, but they were nice enough to share the prize with us all (you're welcome for "Up On The House Top")
Next Sunday is my turn. I guess we will see if hosting is as fun as attending.

It was a collaborated effort. Sara got the final one with my hint and we both gave her several. So she kind of had to share. I'm glad you made it home safe and sound. I was gonna feel bad if anything happened after I made fun of Tom being scared.

So my mom'll post pictures, right? This is getting to be my own little tradition, reading about your dinners on this blog, and see the pictures on mom's. Sweetness.

You all get together so often. That is awesome. Is it going to be a weekly thing indefinitely?

Ooooh, Mary's brisket is THE BEST!

My post will follow soon...you beat me every time!

Yes, mom, Katie is VERY competitive. That was a fun little game last night. I don't know why I have to stress out aso badly whenever I play a game. Do the other competitive Baileys get like that?

Family dinners are always the best! Good food and good company, it doesn't get any better than that!

I love that blessed Brisket too. Thanks for the mental image.
