Beth, Keren, and Stephanie came over after church today for dinner, small group, and birthday cake. We had chicken tikka, naan, and lentil stew for dinner - a massive undertaking that used most of us to make all the food. And in the end, it was delicious and we had lots of left-overs. Yay!
Juanito made his own cake, a giant cake made from 2 boxes of cake mix (chocolate and caramel), the filling from eclair dessert, and homemade chocolate frosting. He cut the cakes up to make a checkered pattern inside the cake. It was pretty impressive. And delicious.
The kids just love having our friends over. They like to show off their stuff - Katrina showed her new hermit crab to everyone, Houston showed his movies, and Zane showed off his favorite toys. I think that my kids are way, way more comfortable with adults than i ever was. (I'm STILL not entirely comfortable with "adults" sometimes. Anyone older or in a position of authority makes me nervous!)
