Aunt Laurie's Birthday Bash

Happy Birthday, Aunt Laurie!!

Today we had Laurie and her fiance Kelsey, and Grandma Judy and Grandpa Jack over for dinner!

I was able to make Laurie her birthday meal (she asked for anything with chicken involved...she LOVES chicken).  I planned out my menu at the beginning of the week and was ready to get to work by Sunday morning!

Here was the birthday menu:


Chips and Salsa  (Mango Salsa and Pineapple Salsa)
Fresh Veggies (carrots and celery cut up)
Leeks, Shrimp, and Whole wheat pasta


Spinach & Strawberry Salad (with homemade dressing)
Avocado and Fresh Garden Salad (tomatoes, carrots, celery, and romaine lettuce)
Lemon Roasted Chicken in Crock pot
Baked Potatoes


Ice Cream Cake

After dinner we took a walk around the block with the kids while they rode their bikes and while Julia pushed her carriage...to walk off the dinner...and make room for the ice cream.

We came back, sang Happy Birthday, Laurie opened her gifts (we got her the Vera Bradley bag she wanted and Kelsey got her a diamond heart bracelet, and mom got her a gift card).

Then we ate and relaxed downstairs while the kids watched The Prince of  Egypt  and Julia told us everything she knew about Pharaoh and Moses.

It was a great time...and we all had fun.

And Kelsey and John made us laugh the whole time...they are exactly alike...brothers already.
