Saturday night we partied with friends in this cozy cabin. It was our friend April's 41st birthday. Last year when April turned 40, she was in bed all day sick from chemo. So, this year, her husband Keith planned a suprise party for her at this cabin that belongs to his great uncle.
I wish I would have taken more pictures...but I was busy having fun!
April is now cancer free and doing wonderfully. She has been such an inspiration to all who know her.
Happy Birthday April!
These four guys have been best friends since middle school. I think it's pretty neat that they're still so close after all these years. Thankfully all the wives get along too...not that we have a choice in the matter! So many good times shared with this group.
Here's the gang in our younger days!
Eric's parents watched Brady Saturday evening for us. I always feel like I need to make them something to show my appreciation. I made mint chocolate chip cookies using Andes Chocolate Mints.
They were good....but I honestly didn't enjoy the green color. I think I would leave out the food coloring next time! Here's the recipe if you're interested:
1 bag sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp. mint extract
7 drops green food coloring :(
1 cup Andes Mints
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix together and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
