Pajama Pinochle Party

More creating your own fun around here. Every few months we have a pinochle party where there are 12 or 16 people invited and we spend the evening playing pinochle. Everyone gets a number and then plays about 28 hands. We change partners and keep track of our scores as we move throughout the evening.

Well at the last pinochle party some of the ladies thought it would be fun to have a 'Ladies Only' pinochle party and come in pajamas. So that is what we did. We had a great evening laughing, visiting, eating, and being comfortable. We gathered at 6 pm and finished 7 rounds at 10:30 pm.

Here is the group of ladies that were present.
Top row: Becky, Andrea, Erika, Pat, Anna, Me.
Bottom row: Jenny, Emily, Christin, Gayle, Susan and Joanie.

Emily's Birthday in the Wonderful Land of Oz

Happy Birthday Emily!!!
So Emily (and her roommate Andrea) love to dress up,
make fools of themselves and make everyone else join them.
(okay, so it wasn't as bad as I am making it sound.
we actually had a lot of fun, even if we looked ridiculous.)
The Three Witches: I was Glenda, the good witch,
Emily was the Wicked Witch of the East
and Andrea was the Wicked Witch of the West.

Anna as the Apple Tree - she even threw her apples like the mean one in the story.
Moses came as one of the Flying Monkeys - quiet but scary!

Erika was one of the Yellow Brick Roads and Joanie was the Scarecrow!

Paul was the Wizard of Oz - always saying something about the man behind the curtain.

And here we are. the great group of characters from the Wizard of Oz.

A most memorable evening. Hope you had a great time Emily!
