Friday Night Social

Sorry I have been MIA for the past few days. Lots of stuff happening at home and at work.

Friday night was our Sunday School Social/Surprise Baby Shower for Kristi. We all went over to Brian and Kristi's house and Brian grilled some of the strangest food I have ever seen. His wife Kristi is about 4 weeks away from giving birth to their first child, a girl. Here's a few pics to give you an idea of everything that happened.
Brian made grilled Zummo sausages which is evidently a local grown treat! We have had these sausages twice now. Once at a Halloween party where we got food poisoning afterwards and then again on Friday night. I still don't think I like them but at least I didn't get food poisoning this time. And wrapped in flour tortillas?? That was a new one for me.

These were jalopeno peppers that had been halved and gutted, spread with cheese and topped with bacon. Brian threw them on the grill and these were actually really good. I was surprised.

I was in charge of dessert and made Smores cupcakes. They were really good and the recipe made alot but was alot of work and I still felt like I had eaten better cupcakes before. But they were good and very interesting. I got the recipe from This Little Piggy...

I had to show you my present that I took because I LOVE this wrapping paper!!

Matt posed with the cat. I can't remember the cats name but E called her Jinxy cat (from the movie "Meet the Parents")

Matt got a new game. Well, not really...his favorite game is Phase 10 (or as we affectionately call it "The card game that NEVER ENDS!!!"). So he bought a "new" game...Phase 10 dice!!

Some Baby Shower decorations...

The cat was so funny!! It actually played fetch like a dog. Isn't that funny!! Here she is completely focused on watching that paper ball.

Here she is after Lucy threw the ball and she is bringing it back to her to throw again!!

Here is Kristi opening up presents.

I've had those Jalepino poppers before and even though they look strange, they are so good! It looks like you had a great time!

The reason you don't like the zummo sausages is because of the ingredients. I can't find a list of them on the internet but if my memory serves me correctly, hearts are one of the ingredients. I'm getting queasy thinking about it.
