We celebrated another long running tradition the other night with our annual wreath making party!  Annie, Moraghan and I along with our Moms have been making wreaths for well over ten years.  It’s something I look forward to each year and I’m pretty sure our Moms do equally as much.  We usually have food and wine, tell stories (many involving Mrs. T revealing something from her past that makes Annie squirm) and of course end up with green teeth from the gobs and gobs of green food coloring that goes into these marshmallow and corn flakes treats.

Calvin was fortunate enough to get an invitation this year and he loved all his time with the ladies!
