So, Sunday we had my brothers and their "wives" over for a small family dinner to honor Addison's birthday....and Evans too. I did make a cake for Addie which almost became a disaster. I got creative and cut the offending section out of the cake and turned it into a display of the "2" candle.... otherwise it would have been caved in on one side! We ate broccoli potato soup, wild rice & chicken soup, rolls/biscuits, couscous salad, Alisa's green salad with apple & fresh mozzarella, fresh fruit/dip, and of course.....birthday cake which was strawberry with cream cheese frosting...mmmmm. It was a lot of fun to have them over....sadly Jeff got sick and so he and Nicola couldnt make it. The kids loved their gifts from Uncle Nate and Aunt Alisa... in fact I dont think Evan has put his Giraffe down yet! Saturday Addie got a package from Gma/Gpa Ries which contained princess shoes/crown/jewels and a play cell phone. She has been in 7th heaven talking on that phone and clunking around in those shoes! They both recieved money from Kentucky relatives.....Evan has already spent his on games for his new Nintendo DS. We are waiting for Addie to play out her new toys before we go and get her some more.
Thanks to everyone that made these birthdays special..... I think next year we are going to space them out somehow!
