Go Plaid and You Won’t be Sad

This holiday party was non denominational, with no jolly old elf or reindeer to be included. The invite was all about the plaid with decorations including sprigs of pine and pine cones. Oh and, um, moose and squirrels were involved. Not in a relationship like Bullwinkle and Rocky or anything.  Just in a woodlands creature sort of way.

Family Reunion (also known as Frew Fest…)

The Frew crew all went to Frewsburg for the Frew Fest.  Phew, that’s a lot of Frew(s).  But how about that?  This Frew clan- of Scottish ancestry- settled long ago in the southwestern corner of New York.  The town grew and prospered and became known as Frewsburg, New York.  Still standing today.  So the descendants of Hugh and Mary Frew appropriately gathered there for their family reunion.  And what delights the young and old at any large gathering (and ages in between)?  Why fun and fancy cookies, of course!  With a theme…


There were a lot of cookies and a lot of Frew attendees!


Minis are such fun: a simple plaid and “F” for (what else) Frew!


Some closer pics… the Lion rampant on the Royal Standard of Scotland!

Nessie.  ‘nuf said.


The cookie designs with Frew in mind.


Scotland supreme on this part of the set.
