Mom and Baby Christmas Lunch

Today Sydney and I headed to our friend Sarah and Emma's house for a Mom and baby Christmas luncheon.  Sarah is an amazing hostess, she does the best job of throwing parties and today was no exception.  Her home looked amazing, the food was fantastic and the kids had a great time playing together.  Sarah makes the most incredible homemade hummus, I ate a boatload of it along with a couple of glasses of sparkling wine....heavenly!

I made a fun little appetizer to share with everyone, it's basically a Caprese salad on a toothpick, one cherry tomato, one basil leaf and one mini-mini bocconcinni cheese ball with a side of olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dip them in.  Delicious and healthy!

One of the Moms made the most delicious homemade cookies, iced sugar cookies (just like my Grandma used to make!) and dark chocolate chip cookies.  They were delightful, Sydney ate enough for both of us!!

 Sarah had each child bring a gift for an exchange and as everyone was leaving they got to choose a different gift to take home with them.  Sydney chose this one, a Melissa and Doug chunky zoo puzzle:

We also got a lovely little parting gift bag from Emma, a personalized stamp with "Handmade by Sydney" on it so that we can use it for the back of cards and all of her artistic creations.  I love it!  What a lovely personal gift!

It was a very festive morning of visiting with our Mom friends and enjoying some Christmas spirit.  Thank you Sarah for a lovely day!
