Fun with Friends

Saturday we didn't do a whole lot, seeing as there was snow everywhere.  Not a mountain of it, but enough to make a lot of being out and about interesting.  So the girls suited up and headed outside to play.  While I stayed inside and cooked.  I made a double batch of my homemade meat sauce, some roasted butternut squash, and some fabulous peppermint chocolate bars.  Heaven in a pan.  Then they came in for lunch, and headed back out to play some more.  This time Steven headed out with them and helped them build a snowgirl, complete with dress, and carrot nose.  She's very cute.  Hannah went over to play with our neighbors, and went sliding with them.  Not sledding, since apparently she was just sliding down the hill on her belly. 

All of the cooking was to have some friends over on Sunday.  Janice and her three adorable cuties, and Jennie & Ben with their 3 adorable cuties were all here for dinner on Sunday.  It was far less chaotic than you'd think with 8 kids and 6 adults.  All the kids seemed to get along wonderfully, despite a bout of shyness from Jennie's little ones.  Everyone ate lots of food, and Janice's easy apple cake from Bakerella was fantastic!  I love having friends over.
