A hell of a party!

Our holiday party last night was absolutely terrific. It is really fun to laugh one's face off with old friends for an entire evening. Great food and drink don't hurt. KKE and SE brought their famous punch and punch bowl, and as promised y'all, you MADE.THE.BLOG! Huge thanks for this bowl of goodness which is one of the most delightful champagne punch recipes ever. punch
