Sweetheart Banquet

That's me!
Saturday night we spent an enjoyable evening with other loving couples in our church. Several ladies in the church had organized everything down to the childcare. The only thing we were required to bring was a dessert. The table settings were creative and romantic, while the devotional was thought-provoking and the "The Newlywed Game" was humorous. Five couples ranging from a couple married for just two years to a couple that had been married for forty-four years answered questions about their spouses. All the couples did well, even with some of the really hard questions, and the winning couple won by only 10 points from the last place couples' score with a three-way tie.

I made a really, really wonderful chocolate fondue with strawberries to dip into the chocolate. I found the recipe in this month's Southern Lady magazine. It was a big hit, with people stopping by to tell me how good it was—a keeper recipe. I had made a double batch so I was able to freeze some for further use.

One of the things I love at our church is that just like was the case at our table all age groups mix well together. Our table had an empty nest couple, us with an almost teenager and a couple with children just starting school. We never ran out of things to talk about and had a great time together. Of course, there was some table hopping to touch base with those friends who came late (and you know who you are!).

Ummmm....that would be us! ;o) LOL

It was a really wonderful evening, wasn't it? I was so impressed that everything was so well done, from the childcare to the decorations to the program. We were both really glad we attended. :o)
