Tonight We're Having A Dinner Party!!



Tonight we're having a dinner party! Katleyn is making chicken parmesan, potatos with onions and green beans. It smells delicious!

Feel free to comment on her new haircut, it looks great doesn't it?

Eli is wearing his party hat!


Zachary's hockey team won their game today 3-1. We're celebrating that too.

And I'm sure that we'll be featuring Finding Nemo, so come on in...what could be more fun than us on a Saturday night.

Thank you for visiting my party! I wanted to come visit and say "hi". It looks like I picked a good time and didn't miss your dinner party. :-)

How exciting to be adopting a little one from China. Congratulations!

I love Lake Michigan ... my family and I have vacationed near Silver Lake Sand Dune, Mears, Michigan ... a beautiful area! God bless you and your family.

That sounds like a perfect Saurday night for me.

Love the haircut...but I think she needs a matching party hat ;0)

Hopefully, your hockey hound has managed to hang onto his teeth.

Thanks for stopping by my party & I’m glad to join in on yours, too. Wow- so exciting about little Sophia Jane. My heart longs to adopt a girl from somewhere far away! (I have 3 boys!)

Just stopped by the party to say hi!! Looks like your little blog party is generating lots of traffic. I've visited your blog before...didn't realize you had a daughter named Kate. It's one of my favorite names, always has been. The little girl we're adopting is named "Katya" which we aren't going to change, but I think Kate will make a nice nickname for her.

sognatrice said...

Ciao from Italia! Great pictures! I'm happy to have found your little corner of cyberspace :)

Terri @ In His Hands said...

Your daughter is beautiful! I love Eli's expression---so cute! Jackson loves the smiley with the black eye.

Great post!

Amy said...

You know I would love to come!!!

Jess said...

Wow, what a lovely family! So neat about your new baby girl! Thanks for visiting OH MY!

Race Mom said...

I love your blog name. I knew as soon as I read it that you were refering to your family. I did that too. I have five diamonds on my anniversary ring. And let's not leave out DH, his race cars number is the same year we were married!

Dolores and Shawn said...

I'm glad that you were able to celebrate with your family. What a great way to spend the day.

Tammy said...

Thanks so much for visiting my place! I don't see how I am going to make it through each and every one on the party list, but so glad I was able to drop by here!
You have a beautiful(and active!) family!
Dinner sounds wonderful...your daughter is both pretty and talented, it sounds like! Love the picture below of you and your husband, too.
How truly special that you are waiting to adopt a little girl from China.
Blessings to you!

PT-LawMom said...

Your kids are so cute and your blog is great! Good luck with your adoption journey!! :P

Hello,
First things first. I love red Mary Janes! When my girls were little, I had them wear red KicKers mary janes!
You must be the most invlolved family I've met on the party. My younger daughter prepared a meal "for the ladies mum hosts", but you should see it for yourself! Sometimes we forget that children want to be part of what we do as much or even more than we want to be part of their lives.
I hope to come again. Have a wonderful time.
