weekend with GREAT friends

The Copelands were in town this weekend from Austin. I know I say this ALL the time, but I would give just about anything for them to move closer to us and the Garretts. We just have the BEST time when we all get together.

Sunday night we all got together for dinner at our house.
I did the appetizer and dessert, Christi did pizza and Tiff did salad....so yummy.

We all had a great time, but what makes it even better is for out kids to get to play together.

more b-day fun

My birthday was so nice this year.
Corey surprised me with a day at the Cresent Hotel Spa.
I spent the day at the pool relaxing and then had an hour and a half spa treatment...I really felt like I was in heaven.
Then....Mom, Dad, Camille and I went to a fun restaurant for dinner.

The next night Camille babysat while Corey and I went to dinner....I know, I know I am very spoiled:)

and it's not over yet.....

I told ya...I LOVE a birthday month!!!!!!

making marshmallows

I am having so much fun taking care of 3 beautifully, sweet girls this summer on top of my two:)
They are here 3 days a week and each day I try to have something fun and creative for them to do in the kitchen...because we all know how much I love to cook!!!

Last week we tackled marshmallows. They were not near as hard as I was anticipating and they turned out really well.

The next day we made smores with them

The girls said they loved them and that's all that matters to me.

Not sure what we are going to get into next week, but I'm sure it will be fun!!!!
