The Family Party

In the few hours Saturday between getting back from the beach and going on our date I started stressing about Preston's family party. What was I going to make?!
Preston doesn't like most food I make so there wasn't something he would be dying for and I just wanted to keep it simple. I started browsing through my recipe blog (from the good old days when I actually made dinner every night) and saw a recipe for meatballs and then I remembered the SUPER yummy chicken pesto meatballs I had bought at Sprouts a few weeks ago. They were so good in fact that the night I left them simmering on the stove for Mike, Addie and Preston while I took Ella to swimming I received a text from him about how good they were. That is serious :-)! So, there we had it...easy, yummy, and not crazy expensive (I had stopped by our fave Mexican restaurant to see about just buying a pan of cheese enchiladas and rice and beans from them...too much!). One quick run to Sprouts and we were ready for the dinner.
After church Sunday we got it all ready, everyone came over to eat and visit and Preston got even more cool toys...and an iTunes giftcard from Grammy and Greatfrog that made his little heart skip a beat when I explained what it was. GAMES for the IPAD?!?! It doesn't get better :-)!
So, I think it's safe to say Preston had a successful birthday day, week and weekend. One of these days we'll get the thank yous out in the mail!
a quick pre-party nap at church :-)
