I did buy a small toy to each of the kids: Surge and slinky dog from Toy Story, batman car, project runaway for the big girls (they came with the templates to draw dresses, hair styles, etc...), and a car for Santana.
Plus everyone got a notebook and a box of crayola. (Well, the crayola was needed for school, but they loved it).
I picked one picture that I liked from each kid...
Food was good. People were great. Ari gave us a big tantrum at the end of the night, good thing is that she felt asleep and woke up her normal self. She is after all 21/2 years old. But, overall was a good night.

As you can tell, I did :) I looked everywhere else for the set and I could not see it. I know the set was made in Denmark awhile back, but I don't know the year. This as you can imagine will be a big project and I will start as soon as I decide what type of fabric to get. Yeah, it is an indulgence... but I hope to make it into a quilt for keeps. Now I set myself for the record. ;)

I wanted to try to cook something that I had not done before. We always try different cuisines, and although we had gone to Middle Eastern restaurants I don't remember ever eating Tahini before so I found this recipe in one of my magazines ( Cooking Light) and decided to make it a project!
Spicy Chicken Shawarma Ingredients:
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp ground coriander5 tbsp plain low fat Greek style yogurt, divided
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, divided
3 garlic cloves, minced and divided
1b skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, thinly sliced
2 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp TAHINI
4 (6 in. ) pitas, halved
1/2 cup chopped cucumber and plum tomato and pre-chopped red onions!
1. Combine the first 6 ingredients with 1 tbsp yogurt, 1 tbsp lemon juice, and 2 garlic cloves.
I could not believe how easy they were. I am sure most of you know how, but here are some pictures of ours.
Not very flat, but they were very tasty :) We need to work on that part.
