Jill's Birthday Dinner

Last Thursday night, my family came over to celebrate Jill's birthday!Jill requested chicken spaghetti, salad, green beans and rolls for her birthday meal.It was fun having my family over for dinner. I don't know the last time I cooked for them. Maybe before Brody was born! Ha! I cook every month or so for Josh's family but never for my own. Even though my family is in the same town, we are all so busy that we don't eat together except every other Sunday. It was fun to eat with them on a week night. I think I will start having them over more often since my mom hand washed all my dishes while we watched the NFL draft. :) She is so sweet and so helpful! Josh and Brandon didn't move all night. They ate in front on the TV so they could watch the draft and then they played on their phones. Exciting night! Ha! After eating, we had birthday cake from Rick's!
Isn't this cake sooo cute?? I bought these plates and napkins and had Rick's make a cake to match. Jill loves paisley so when I saw these I knew it would be perfect for her. Jill opened her cards and gifts after we ate cake. This is Brody's card to her. He spent a lot of time coloring the inside of the card and the envelope. He would color a while and then look at me and say, "nice?" I would have to tell him it looked nice before he would start to color again! Haha! Brody enjoyed himself as well that night. His favorite thing to do right now is to play with our vacuum cleaner. He is obsessed with it! Ha!A few people requested I post the poof video again in honor of Jill's birthday so here is the link to the post with the video. Enjoy!!

OH my gosh I am so glad I found your blog! I saw kelly's photo of your little boy and harper and I was DYING to know what you put in his hair to make it stand up like that...I didn't know if it was just gel or what....I am going to try tonight to put my little boys hair up like that with a little bit of spray gel...what do you use?

(by the way I'm not a stalker :)... I just scrolled through her "friends" blogs and figured I'd find you eventually..ok that sounds kind of creepy)

That meal looks delicious! Mind sharing the chicken spaghetti recipe? And thanks for the poof video repost, Jill is the one who introduced me to Freeze it hairspray, which is now my official teasing hairspray :)

Alicia said...

I'm not the first to request, but could you share the chicken spaghetti recipe? It looks amazing!!

Alex and Jill said...

That paisley cake is almost too pretty to eat...so cute!!

Happy Belated Birthday to Jill!

Traci said...

This is probably going to sound really stupid since I don't know y'all but I'd watched the Jill vidoe when you first posted it & when I saw that cake I immediately thought that it looked perfect for her!!!

Lindsey said...

I love the feeling I have when I cook for my family! It's the best gift we could ever give to them I think! Your Mom sounds like mine . .washing dishes by hand, especially good dishes, she wont put them in the dishwasher.

Love that cake too! SO cute!!

Have a great weekend and hope you are feeling well!

What a fun night! I love the paisley cake & plates/napkins. Jill is so cute - I want her haircut! Once I have this baby I'm going to have to come see Julee. :) And the poof video is the best...I finally bought freeze it last week and it really does make a difference!! :)

Amanda said...

That is how David Franklin likes "coaler" (color). Precious!!! I just love reading your blog and checking up on his birthday buddy. So cute they had the same Easter duds! Did you ever have my father in law at OBU? Just wondering. Take care and congrats on number 2!! PS. Is it weird that instead of the cake, the green beans are what looked delicious to me?

Aimee Bryan said...

I absolutely love it! You two girls are so funny and adorable! What a humorous and good sport is Jill. 128 comments about the poof, that's gotta record breaking! I'd love to have your recipe for Chic Spaghetti, it looked SO yummy! LOVED the video!
