Holiday Party at Yanks

Greenfield, CA

Tuesday night we had our annual Yanks Christmas party.
The ham was supplied by the park,
and everyone signed up to bring a side dish,
dessert, or something else to share.

The clubhouse was decorated so nicely!
The tree always looks so great,
especially with the red, white, and blue colors.

Norma and Jodi had the table all decked out too!

As we waited for the rest of the staff to arrive,
we helped ourselves to munchies and drinks.

Presents were brought to do a gift exchange 
in the manner of a Yankee swap.

Jodi set up a game using rubber ducks,
advancing them by rolling dice.
Whoever's duck went up and back first
won a prize chosen from our store.

I made some Christmas Cookie Shots to share.
They're made with Knox gelatin, Butterscotch Schnapps,
Tripe Sec, and Bailey's. 
Oh they were good :-)

Some of the staff decided to share in a Duke bourbon shot.

We all enjoyed the food and company.
Norma and I got photo bombed by Steve, our boss :-)

Oh and the food!
Green salad, mashed potatoes, broccoli, pasta salad..
rolls, and Daniel's famous mac & cheese.

After we ate, we played some Pictionary..
it was a riot!

We usually take a picture of everyone in front of the tree,
but ended up getting this shot instead..

George, me, Steve, Jodi, Billie, Norma, Rod, Daniel, Robert, Sonia, Laura
Everyone had a terrific time!

Even Cooper came over for some fun :-)

And so another year is coming to a close here at Yanks!
