Special Sunday Guest

We were thrilled to have Coleman's wonderful teacher and her husband over for dinner this Sunday. She couldn't make it to our little teacher appreciation dinner we had in the Fall--so we had another one just for her!
Coleman loves his teacher! According to him, Mrs. Langley is so fun, really super nice, extra smart and pretty too! I have to agree! Most of all, I am so happy that Coleman has a teacher that is so kind and loves him!
We set the table with our nicest dishes, made a yummy dinner and Coleman wrote her a sweet little card and made her a cute clipboard.

The Menu (yes I know I changed it)
Honey Mustard Chicken
Chilled Orzo and Wild Rice Salad
Spinach, Feta, Pinenut and Strawberry Salad with a Lemon vinaigrette
Roasted Balsamic glazed Asparagus
Buttermilk Rolls with Raspberry Butter
Classic Chocolate Bundt Cake

Right before our guests arrived Cannon helped himself to the cake:)

Look at that cute little face...what a stinker! We served around the little missing handful and everyone got a good laugh!

That is so neat! I bet Coleman loved that - his teacher sounds wonderful - I'm so happy about that! Cannon is so CUTE!! What a little stinker, like you said! (Gabe would say "stinker pot" - his own combination of stinker and stinkpot!) :)

Pretty cute! I love the stinker things that little boys do. Cannon looks adorable. And Coleman looks so big! I'm glad he has such a nice teacher. I think it is so nice that you invite their teachers over for dinner. Love you!

What a fun thing to do, Melanie. I am totally going to do this too, when Ben is in school. I love the idea. I'm sure his teacher loved it. I think it is great that you 'roll with it' when stuff happens like Cannon sticking his hand in the cake. You are a great mom! You don't stress about things, but you just turn them into a funny memory to laugh about.
