Our day didn't quite go to plan yesterday - our daytime plans didn't happen....long story of miss-copied directions, distance from gas stations and eventually giving up lol! But all worked out in the end and we spent a relaxing day for the most part at home in the warm enjoying the snowfall and the fire.
Abby made herself Kraft dinner, and I had some of that with leftover hashbrown casserold, which ended up tasting soooooo good that I might actually make it with the kraft dinner IN it next time! It doesn't look too appetising but I promise you it tasted AMAZING!
I really shouldn't have eaten so much as I KNEW we were having a big turkey dinner later!
We opened one of the boxes of chocolates that Kevin brought over - it didn't last long as the kids all loved them:
Late afternoon we headed to T's house for a pot luck supper with friends! Laurence was working, so Kevin came with us, but he was welcomed by everyone and I think he enjoyed it!
We sat out by the fire for a while which was actually my favourite part - it was lovely out there! We got to snoop through T's albums and yearbooks from the 80's and early 90's which were sooooo funny!
The girls were busy doing crafts and playing, and the boys were gaming I think...all in all we were there over 6 hours and I barely saw my two!! I love that all the children play so well together for sooo long!!
While the children played, so did the adults....games of Spot It and Trigger tend to get VERY heated when the Royal Order compete against each other :)
I sneaked out of the party for a couple of hours to take Kevin to the Haunted Hike. The line up had been too long yesterday, and last night was his last chance to go. Susannah came too. It was MUCH better than Friday night and we did a lot of screaming. Susannah cried twice but was giggling like crazy...it was soooo much fun :)
We got home late BUT I still read a bedtime story to Sam. We read Meg and Mog which I had as a little girl too :) I remember the story of Meg and Mog going to the moon :)
