Charlie wanted to tell you something:link.
I think he is so handsome. But I may be biased.
We had chicken, mashed potatoes, and broccoli with cheese sauce. Then for dessert we had one of Mike's creations called Cookie Cream. It's just whipped cream mixed with crushed up Oreos. You refrigerate it until the cookies get soft. And it is goooood.
After he finished his cookie cream, he said he would feed Emily. She took a bite and Andrew then took a bite. I told him it was Emmie's and he said, "But Mom, we just sharin'." He was pretty excited when she didn't want anymore and proceeded to stuff his tiny face while humming and dancing. He was pretty happy.
Emily is all girl, choosing purple or pink anytime she gets a chance. We love our new kid-friendly cups/bowls/plates. (Thanks, Amy!!) Poor baby fell off her chair, but she was okay.
I firmly believe everyone should have a happy-go-lucky baby and wigs in the house. Since acquiring the latter, C has been subjected to wigs anytime I feel frustrated or am having a bad day. It always makes me laugh and cheers me up. As soon as I put it on his head, he looks at me with this sly little smile because he knows I'm going to crack up. Then he smiles and squeals. Boy do we love our little baby!
But luckily, he cheers me up all the time, even sans wig. He loves Cheerios and even ate a little broccoli tonight with his sister, the cheerleader saying, "Mmmmmm, it's good, Charlie!"
Taking a picture of Emily? How about I jump in the picture instead? :) They both look so adorable in both of these shots.
The food was good, the kids were cute, Mike was wonderful, and it was great to spend time together. I think we'll continue the tradition with more planning next year. :)
