*Today was a big day for Cam. He and Chris hosted a Star Wars pizza party for some friends from church. Cam LOVED it!
Cam created a "menu" for the afternoon including things like, "Anakin apples" and, "Skywalker Salad".
The boys all brought their Lightsabers to "battle". After the party ended we overheard Cam telling the neighborhood boys, "You guys, we had an EPIC battle. There were 12 year old boys and a 14 year old boy! It was AWESOME!!" As a mom who, in the back of her mind, always worries about the friendship factor for my little guy, I LOVED hearing this. :)
*Kendall and I stayed away for the afternoon to let them have their time. After a nice lunch with my parents, we ran a few errands, including a stop at Starbucks. I sacrificially used my giftcard on an overpriced cake pop ;) But just look at this pic...how could she not be worth it?? So cute :)
*I got my first issue of Rachel Ray in the mail this past week (Christmas present). I made this recipe for homemade granola. I think it's super yummy. I'm planning on mixing it with the kids' Cheerios as a way to get some almonds in them (neither are big nut fans). I figure it's a good way to ease them into it since I'm not positive they'll love it by itself like I do.
*I've decided go through all the seasons of Gilmore Girls. I've seen many of the episodes, but not the entire series. I love the witty dialogue, the mother/daughter relationship, and the cute small town setting. :)
