It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! Yes so i am a little delayed in posting these photos considering the annual girls night party was last Wednesday but finally they are here. I had such a great time having all the girls over! A big Thanks go all who came! The only regret i have is that i didn't get a photo of the food table once it was all set out!! But i have all the recipes for those who are interested.
The Menu went as follows

Carmelized Onion Tarts
Bacon-wrapped Maple-glaced Apricots
Amber's Artichoke Dip (look at the bottom of the post for recipe)
