The Brunch Report

This year’s Neighborhood Ladies’ Brunch was a delight! We always enjoy fellowshipping with our wonderful neighbors, and this was no exception. We were grateful to the ladies who took the time to come to the brunch! Many of them also brought food for which we were very thankful too!

Here is our menu:

  • Potato and Ham Breakfast Casserole (recipe coming later)
  • Cinnamon Rolls
  • Coffee Cake
  • Fruit Salad
  • Veggies
  • Gooey Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins
  • Almond Shortbread
  • Peanut Butter Surprise Brownies


Mom was a wonderful hostess, and she came up with this years’ round-table discussion. She asked everyone to share a highlight of the past year, and if they wanted to, they could tell about their saddest time.

We were blessed as we heard about each of our friends’ triumphs and some hardships. There was much laughing, and there were also a few tears shed as the ladies shared. It was a neat time, and Dad said he could tell from all the laughter he heard from his office upstairs that we were surely enjoying each other’s company!

After the brunch, it was time to hurry. Like Sarah already mentioned, we will wait for another post to tell you what we were hurrying to do!

Serving Jesus,

Sarah and I made this decoration about 10 years ago.

Anna Marie took this one so Sarah could be in it.

  1. Praise the Lord for such a lovely gathering! The menu made me hungry just reading it! Looking forward to the casserole recipe. Blessings to you all!

  2. Oh how I enjoy Ladies Fellowship gatherings. At church today it was announced that (Sunday in Australia) our yearly Christmas gathering will be a morning tea in December and we will all be constructing our own gingerbread houses. The two Presbyterian churches from differing towns around 60 ladies come- it’s fantastic catching up with old and new friends that we have not seen for a while. We have also been asked to bring a plate to share so i may make your potatoe and ham dish(i will make them into bite size muffins instead).
    Yet another great post Sarah, thankyou- you and your family are such an encouragement for me (i’m 27). I can’t wait to find out where you had to rush off too.

  3. What a special time you all had! 🙂 The menu sounds delicious, and I’m sure everyone enjoyed the fellowship. Thanks for sharing these photos–especially the photos featuring the babies–SO cute!
    Love, Mrs. Patti

  4. Looks like you all had a lovely time! Would love it if you posted all the recipes, please! Our church is having a ladies fellowship this Saturday and we’ll be sharing about our month in October where we were given a prayer partner that we were matched up with. Really looking forward to it! 🙂

  5. Laughter and tears, isn’t that what life is made of?!

    Wish we could have attended the brunch….love how you encouraged everyone to share joys and hardships.

    The pictures are great! Love seeing the 2 newest Maxwells!

  6. How wonderful. It looks like it turned out beautifully. I must ask: “Where did you find such a beautiful & LONG table?”
    Happy Thankgiving,
    An Amish furniture store had it built for us. It was very reasonable and fit the size of our room.
