Baking with Bunnie

We love getting together with friends. Sharing a meal, listening, and laughing. Last night, our friends Max and Bunnie joined us for dinner and baking. We started out the late afternoon baking muffins together, Ms. Bunnie and I. Ms. Bunnie put on the guest apron from Australia and got right in there. What fun we had! I so much enjoyed talking with them that I got distracted talking and quickly realized - I'd NEVER make it on Food Network! I so much appreciate how Caleb and Claire got right in there, reading the recipe over my shoulder, getting out the needed ingredients so we would have them ready at our fingertips! Thanks Kids!

After making two kinds of muffins (Morning Glory and chocolate chip), we started work on assembling our dinner - pizza! We're so thankful for the time Max and Bunnie took to join us for a quiet evening and giving us a gentle reminder that we should not be timid in having people over. We learned things about each other, chatted about infamous people in our families, and enjoyed having the chance to visit. What a blessing they were to our family and we look forward to doing this again soon!

** Just a sad note, that 6 months after we had the Max and Bunnie over for dinner, Max died of a massive heart attack and he has been terribly missed.
