The Party at the Governor's Mansion

Front row: Billy Day, Sandra, Earline, Governor Perdue, Mel Day, Mrs. Day Second row: Donna, Pat, Donna, Back row: Pam, me and Wanda.

You may recall seeing the photos of the quilts used to decorate the Mansion Library this year; they were all made my Mrs. Day, Mel's mother - who looks smashing in a red suit and much younger than she ought to! 

The Governor captured in icing!

This is not your typical gingerbread house; nevertheless, it is all edible! Made by Donna of Sweet Memories Bakery in Cary, NC. It is an excellent replica of our State Capitol building.

Congratulations! It is interesting that we have a woman governor in NC... (and she's not named Scott)

Why didn't you get on the front row? Looks like a very special group and a great time. Oklahoma has elected our first woman Governor.

I'm with Granny Annie, you should have been in the front row and not tucked away at the back. Glad all that hard work was appreciated.
