Food & Friends

Yesterday was a wonderful day spent with several of my bloggity buddies. Sandra was kind enough to host us at her beautiful home. Well, actually I kind of invited us over. Since Maryellen & Sophie got sprung from the hospital a little earlier than expected we had no place to go. We were all supposed to spend the day together anyway. So I called Sandra and asked if she'd mind if we all came over to her place. She graciously agreed. Thank goodness.
Robin & Maddy came down to hang out even though yesterday was THE GAME OF THE SEASON. You know, OSU & Michigan! As expected, they were wearing their team gear. No, the kid jersey didn't come with fairy wings. Those were thanks to Jazzie & Thalia. We turned the TV on to keep tabs on the score. The Buckeyes were victorious! But we didn't doubt it for a second.
Sophie was trying out a new look here. She wasn't so sure about it as you can tell by the look on her face. But we thought it was funny.
Stacy is a trooper. She had an almost 3 hour drive over. We were all so glad she came to visit. There was lots of girlie gab and way too much chocolate. But those are always the best ingredients for a perfect day, aren't they? Unfortunately, I-Con couldn't join us since her dad just had surgery. But she did what she called "drive by cheesecaking". Popped in, dropped us off a cheesecake, gave hugs and split. She even left the car running outside that's how fast she was in and out. LOL! Thanks for the calories, girl! The cheesecake was delish.
Jazzie & Thalia both demonstrated their gymnastics with the help of their dad. Yes she really is that high off the ground. They're both little daredevils.
Maddy took quite a liking to Stacy. I think they'll be friends forever now. They just crack each other up.
Sophie took quite a liking to Sandra's hubby, Matt. She loved sitting in his lap while he read to her. She also cuddled with him for quite awhile. Which I think he may have enjoyed even more than she did. They're good buddies now, too.
Sophie was given a pair of wooden shoes by fellow Dutch girl, Sandra. What? Sophie doesn't look Dutch to you? LOL! Okay seriously though, Maryellen's mother is Dutch Indonesian. So she and Sandra share many customs and traditions which they reminisced about throughout the afternoon. One of which are the wooden shoes. Sophie loved them. It was hysterical watching her walk around. She was so serious, deeply concentrating. Check out that furrowed brow.
The girls decided to play beauty shop with me. It was only slightly painful. But they had fun and that's all that mattered. I mean, I can always just comb my hair over that new bald spot. Hair grows back, right? LOL!
My pics didn't come out well so I swiped these from Sandra. As you can tell by the look on my face, I was so impressed with their work when I was finally allowed to look in the mirror.
But now the girls are my best buddies. So that hairstyle was totally worth it.
Thanks for entertaining us all day and letting us trash your house, Sandra. It was a great day of food and friends. You can't ask for much more than that in life! Looking forward to next time.

Looks like so much fun! Bet it was a welcome change of scenary for Mary-Ellen and Sophie.

Just looking at you with the girls, makes me smile - I can't wait to see to gatherings when you have Mia, ICon has Jayden and Stacy has Tori... life will never be the same again!

Sandra said...

Okay, even that is not the most flattering picture of me, this was a great post and I got to relive our fun day again :-)

I am so glad you guys came and I truly had the best time!

Lisa, Doug & Briana said...

Looks like a wonderful day! Your hair was just beautiful - LOL!

Catherine said...

What a GREAT day!! Thanks for sharing all the fun with us.

Love the new doo! I'm guessing Mia will be only too happy to practice her hair dressing skills on mommy someday.

O-H-I-O! GO!! I don't have an NFL team to cheer for but since so many of my bloggy buds are Ohio fans I've decided to be a fan from the Great White North. Go OHIO!!

I'm missing my friends to the south! Hopefully the spring...and summer will see trips south of the border to visit with friends.

Love ya! Miss you!!

Now THAT looks like a great time. I wish Mali & I were able to take more road trips . . . but unfortunately I have to work. (hhmmpphhh!). Why can't we all just have fun for a living??

P.S. - I'm still laughing at your 'bald spots' comment. Just by admiring the new style you got, I can assure you, the hairstyle was worth it!!

Janet said...

Oh, yeah....I've had my hair "done" by my girls. Ouch. Great pics. It looks like a fun day.

Stacy said...

It was a GREAT time! I can't believe all the food, all the laughter, and all the fun we had in just a few short hours!!!

I can't wait to do it again soon!
It'll happen, I'll just be patient! ;o) LOL

Love ya!
