Just Among Friends
Ties or Tutus, what will the baby wear? This was the question for the guests at the Gender Reveal Party in the home of Steve and Jenny Lyn Wilkerson on Saturday evening, January 8, honoring their daughter, Lacie Wilkerson Murphy and her husband, Anthony Murphy, who are expecting their first child.
Guests were asked to wear pink or blue to show their choice of gender. The front door had a lovely wreath made of pink and blue tulle tutus with ribbon ties worked into the design. They signed a board guessing boy or girl at the door.
Jenny Lynn used Lacie's baby blankets on the serving table and hung her baby cups and shoes from the chandelier above the table with ribbons. It looked so special. Trays of food were served from this delightful setting including mini loaves of bread baked by Kay Salter and petit fours and cookies in the shape of pink tutus and blue bowties. Gina Daly was the "Keeper of the Gender" and also helped with the party.
It was a family affair for the Wilkerson and Murphy family members who had a lot of fun.
Oh, the baby will be wearing tutus!
Congratulations to Larry and Phyllis Robinson who celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary on January 13! Best wishes for many more years together.
The Venue in Philadelphia was transformed into a winter wonderland for the Neshoba Central Senior High School's Winter Formal honoring the senior class on January 8. The venue looked beautiful and so festive. There were decorations everywhere which contributed to the overall effect of a snowy, sparkly, winter evening.
Pretty girls wearing lovely evening dresses and wrist corsages, boys looking handsome in their attire, serving tables filled with delicious food, music for dancing, voices raised in happy chatter and laughter all made the evening a memorable one.
The Neshoba Central PTO and the committee made this annual event an exceptional one where memories were made to cherish by the members of the senior class. Thank you to all who helped!

New York City is an amazing place to visit. It really has everything! Burgin McClellan and Stephen Lomabard spent 8 days there during semester break from Ole Miss.
They went to the Museum of Natural History, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Grand Central Station, the New York Comedy Club and the Empire State Building. They saw three Broadway plays, "Wicked," "Hadestown," and "Chicago." They also attended a concert in Carnegie Hall where they enjoyed listening to Philharmonic orchestra.
They took a Circle Line night cruise and saw the famous nighttime view of the New York City Skyline and also a day cruise around the harbor to see the Statue of Liberty and the skyline by day. One museum which looked like so much fun was the Museum of Ice Cream! They ended that tour with huge ice cream cones.
Central Park was another place they enjoyed. A few inches of snow fell which was icing on the cake. The kind of snowfall that this city receives is perfect for snowmen and snowballs. Ground Zero was also on the agenda along with F.A.O. Schwartz, the iconic toy store. Of course, they dined on great meals of many kinds. There were several other places they visited before returning to Mississippi. I am so glad Burgin was able to visit!
