It was my month to host Bunco. And boy did I feel like Betty friggin' Crocker. I cooked all day Tuesday! It was lots of fun. I especially had fun creating my own Yellow, strawberry, banana, pudding cake, with a very special fudge frosting made from random things I had in the pantry....it's a secret. hehe. It turned out quite yummy I must say.
The Bunco ladies came over at 7pm and we had a great time!
|Alex and Casie subbed for a couple Bunco ladies who couldn't make it. Thanks for playing guys!!|
|Stacey, Niki, Heather & Becki|
|Alex, Keri, Casie and my neighbor Lynn. She subbed too :-) So glad she make it!!|
|Marlo, June, Amanda & Sheri|
|Cute, very cute Casie! She was the Bunco queen at the moment and got to wear the lovely crown. I added in butterfly wings this time, just for fun-fanciness :-)|
I love my Bunco group. Most of these ladies I did not know until we were introduced at Marlo's house for Bunco a couple years ago. I have enjoyed getting to know them...Bunco is a silly, no-skill-needed-mindless-game. It simply gives us Momma's a reason to get away from the family in the middle of the week, eat some yummy food, throw down a few adult cocktails, win fun prizes and chit-chat. It is very theraputic!
Earlier that day we had a couple visitors. Lauren and Grant stopped over for a while. And BUMMER, I forgot to take pics of that gorgeous 6 week old! My cold has me down a bit, so I wasn't thinking. shoot :-(
The next day, Aunt Jessica, Sam and Harrison came over for a playdate. The kiddos all had a great time :-)
|Macy and Harrison posin' for a pic. Macy is almost 8 months old and baby Harrison is almost 4 months old.|
|Harrison loved watching himself in Macy's mirror :-)|

|time to say good-bye - hugging it out|
Yesterday I watched Becca's little ones, Izzie & Blake, while she went over and helped Bethany with the twins. Bethany was able to run a quick errand and hopefully get a little (much needed) nap in.
I took the four kiddos on a walk to the park. And since Ja & Bethany's house was coincidentally on the way to the park, of course, we had to stop by and say hi. This is Mckenzie's FIRST time meeting Neeley :-) She has, very patiently, been waiting for the right time. Grady was inside sleeping, so maybe next time, she'll get to meet him
awww, so sweet!
