Penguins for Paco's Party

 
We are now having a party every month in the mail & press room at work. If nobody has a birthday that month we will make something up. This month it was Paco's birthday. We may have come down a bit, or maybe it's because he's a guy? No decorations. But the food was great. He made chili, and so did one other person, and the rest of us brought appetizers. I didn't even get a picture of the birthday boy! I think he's 39, but people kept adding to the info on the whiteboard, so at last count it said he was going to be 6339!

I wanted to try something I'd seen, and they weren't too hard, and were a big hit. They even got their picture taken.

What was it, you ask? Little penguins, Black Olive Penguins.

The daily paper had to be out the window before we could have the party. Since I wasn't really working (although I did a couple things to help speed up the process) I took a picture of Krista who was doing the job I do, bundling, when I am working.

And... I'll get to do that in just a few more hours.

As to posts, that's about 50% more than my total. You've been at it longer.

The penguins are a cute and creative touch for a party; yet it seems to me to be a lot of work for something you pop in your mouth, crunch twice, swallow. ;-)
