Fun Evening

Last night everyone was here for supper. Steven, Priscilla, Elizabeth, Melanie, Casi, Mei-Ling, Jan, Michael, Sarah, Cody, Emery and I. I was thankful that we have a big table ! More room to grow too, since we have one more leaf that can be added to the table.
There was chicken Alfredo, fire roasted eggplant, zucchini and peppers, Italian soda's, wine and of course dessert. Chocolate almond cake with Ricotta icing, served with Amaretto Gelato. The house was hot from having the stove and oven going so much of the afternoon, so we grabbed our espresso and headed into the living room as soon as the meal was over. Melanie had one root canal finished yesterday and another one started, so her mouth was sore, they left shortly after dessert and Steven has been heading to work at 5 a.m. so they left early too. The babies were so cute in their high chairs during the meal, making all the normal noise babies are meant to make. Playing peek a boo and "singing". It was just another fun evening with family round the table.

Have a wonderful time.
