Day 290

Day 15

Today we had A and his parents over for lunch. We made crab cakes, a couple of salads (potato and garden), and a carrot cake, all gluten free. Everything turned out pretty well! Eleri loved the crab cakes. She gobbled up a bunch of crab and potatoes and hardly spilled any; usually a fair bit of whatever we feed her ends up behind or beside her on the high chair, but not today. It occurred to me after she'd eaten a bunch of the crab that we probably should have been more conservative about how much we fed her, as we don't yet know if she has any shellfish allergies, but fortunately she didn't exhibit any kind of allergic reactions. (Phew.)

The carrot cake was a time consuming endeavor, even with the prep work I'd done before our guests arrived. But by all accounts it was worth it. Everyone seemed quite pleased with the end result.

The boys played and played and played, and a fine time was had by all.

Not a lot else to say about the day. I put together a video, which you can see below. We've got some funny children. :)

Yes. He's reciting the beginning of that "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" video that he loves.
