In my family, I am incredibly lucky because my best friend's dad and my dad are best friends. This means that we look for every excuse to get together-birthday's, Sunday dinners and especially holiday's-at last count our Thanksgiving celebration had 45 people! Every year "the dads" as we have nicknamed them, offer up a special dinner for Carle Hospital's United Way fundraiser. The winner of this much sought after occasion, receives an incredible 5 course dinner, wine pairing
A week ago we had some much needed warm weather and got our kids outside. The daffodils shot up right away and Evelyn couldn't wait to get out there and "collect" them. It was right before dinner and the most beautiful light danced around her as she played. Seeing each season through me girls eyes is one of my favorite parts of being a momma!
