I love hot chocolate from the blender. It is frothy and yummy. I was mixing some up one day. I had just added some more hot chocolate mix and turned to throw the bag away. Just as I turned back from the garbage can my 2 year old turned on the blender. Hot chocolate flew everywhere!!! It covered my entire kitchen....my dish washer, my oven, my fridge. It completely cleared the island. A ten foot diameter circle of hot chocolate spread all over the kitchen. I spent 30 minutes just cleaning up. And today, I noticed I missed a cabinet. We were all standing around it when it happened. My 6 year old was the only one who didn't have to change all of her clothing. What a mess!
M was taking all the pictures. We were all laughing our heads off at our fabulousness!
Here is Grandma R helping out in the kitchen.
We had lots of yummy food. Especially the pies! I could just skip all the other stuff and go straight for the pies! I made a chocolate pecan, 2 pumpkins, an apple, a cheesecake, and a chocolate cream this year.
We played the spray bottle game:
I think everyone had a good time and enjoyed the delicious food.

He recently got a new calling and needed some new things for church. He got a new bag to put his church things in. We had tucked fun things into the pockets....mints to keep his breath fresh, tissues, granola bars for when he has to stay at church for hours and hours, and hand sanitizer for after he shakes all those hands!
See A sitting behind him to the left with a little yellow package? She wanted to give her daddy a present, so she colored him a picture and gave him a candy bar. She is so sweet on her daddy. And her daddy is pretty sweet on her too. She was born at the same time he was going through cancer. He couldn't do much after his surgery and while he was doing chemotherapy so he spent hours and hours just holding her. They have always had a special bond because of it.
M is always asking to take pictures with my camera. She does a pretty good job too. Here is a picture she took of me. (To prove that I was actually at the party!)
Last year I was so burned out by the time my hubby's birthday rolled around that he only got a plate of cookies with a candle in the middle. I thought I would redeem myself this year and make him a fresh apple pie. It was definately worth the time it took to make it. We love pie!Happy Birthday sweetheart. Here is to another year with the man I love!
