Celebrating the Love!

"Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas."

Dale Evans Rogers

Despite the hoards of snow we got from a blizzard Saturday night and all day Sunday,my goddess ladies showed up to my intimate Christmas gathering. All day I awaited their cancellations.... each woman braved the slippery roads.One husband offered to drive his wife, then pick her up two hours later...after informing him she'd be staying at least four hours...he opted to let her take his truck instead. They look clunkier in person!

Finding parking was horrific. I threw on my big clunky square toed shoes with a dress no less...very bohunk looking, I just needed a babushka to complete the look!. I can legitimately call myself that because I am one quarter Ukrainian and one quarter Russian...the rest is Irish and Scottish! I quickly jumped in my jeep....more like hobbled with my gimped knee. As I was driving to pick up one goddess who lives a few complexes over, I saw a kid laying in the middle of the road, while three of his cronies stood by watching. I think he was playing chicken...he stared at my car and continued to lay across the road way! Omg does this boy not know about MENTAL PAUSE!!!(MENOPAUSE)

Holy toledo! He didn't move and so I had to stop....I was yelling some expletives, he could probably read my ( are you a total EFFING IDIOT...OMG ) lips. Meanwhile the car behind me stopped too.. the kid then jumps to his feet forms his fingers in the gesture of an "L" for loser sign.... Thank goodness I wasn't driving around in my last years brakes that were over ten years old!

Was I not looking like a crazy woman, had I not had on my funny bohunk shoes with a dress....and if I was twenty five years younger....I would have jumped out of that car so fast...his head would have spun! He WOULD have been scared in my former days!

I also met my Fairy Goddess there too! I taxied them both to my place where the party began!

Welcome to my celebration of love!!
A joyful moment!
One goddess dawns a ceramic hand over her heart...... the surprise Christmas ring holder she received in our gift exchange! We can only imagine what freaky things she will do with that special hand.....threatening to take it to work today! Instead of our earth goddess she should be our court jester with her abundance of humor always right on the edge! I love it! Nature goddess turns sixty next September and informed me she's getting her nose pierced on that special birthday....... I had mine done to commemorate my fortieth. She's holding up the sweet ornament she brought as a hostess gift....I love the face on the little drummer.
As you can see we had a marvelous celebration with loads of laughter, great food made by all, and some cheer of course! Thanks girls it was so much fun! Unforgettable really! All the ladies were asking for my Raspberry delight dessert recipe which is actually Gypsy Goddesses recipe....so as my gift to all of you
I'm posting my new traditional Christmas dinner dessert.
Trust me this is a huge hit and beat trifle by far
, everyone loves it!

Raspberry Delight
2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons of margarine
3 tablespoons of sugar

Mix those three ingredients together
pack down into a 9x13 pan

place in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes

Prepare 2 cups boiling water add 2 packages of raspberry Jello stir well
then add a 600 g package of Frozen raspberries to the hot jello and stir
Place the mixture in the fridge for a bit then stir half way through ...
so it's a thickened but not solid

Beat one cup of white icing sugar
with one package of cream cheese 8oz
Then fold in the 500 g tub of Cool whip

After the graham cracker base cools,
put a thin layer of the cool whip mixture over the whole base
then spread all the raspberry mixture,

finish off with the rest of the cool whip mixture.....
sprinkle some loose graham cracker crumbs for eye appeal
Store in the fridge.....can be doubled and frozen too!
So yummy my brothers favorite dessert!

What fun! Laughter and love w/ gal pals is special. Love the photos and your attitude. I'd like a tradition like that! (Actually did so in years past, but people move; guess it's time to rope in new friends for something similar, especially seeing you and your friends' smiles!)Thanks for sharing the recipe. I love raspberry.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

I actually have a pair of bohunk shoes too. Lee calls them my Nun shoes (don't get nun when I wear those)...I wear them regularly lol!
Usually with levi's...but maybe try wearing them with a dress even though I'm Irish.
So glad all of you goddesses had fun. Merriest Christmas to you dear Sherrie.

HOW did I miss this post?! OH my god how I wish I was there! another goddess amongst you! There in that great picture you have, can't u just see me giggs? I am on my knees behind nature goddess and below your right side! It is almost like I am missing from the photo!! haha
Love that you went to pick up your friends in your jeep with your pain and your shoes and all that snow! You are also the mama goddess!
That kid in the street? holy crap! I Felt like smacking him. I am the way you used to be, I would have given him a lecture but first scared the crap out of him by nearly hitting him. I hate stupid dangerous pranks like that!
Your raspberry delight sounds delightful! thanks for the gift! I am copying it into my recipes! so happy you had such a nice celebration! xox
