The Canadian prairies were plunged into a deep freeze just a week or so ago, and it was unbearable! We've had such a mild winter lately that these frigid temperatures were a bit extreme. Like -40 (Celsius, or Fahrenheit, it's all the same!) and those of you who know what cold is, that was just the temperature NOT including the wind chill! Day time highs of -28C (-18F) = freaking cold!
So my friend Megan decided we should have a Sunshine & Hot Chocolate party. Aka make hot chocolate and watch Little Miss Sunshine (which I had not yet seen.) Because Amy's cat had recently had kittens, we decided to have the party at her house!
Amy with Leo & Tubby (yup...Tubby!)
Megan & Dale with kitties!
Me playing with kitties!
Now that the party was going to be at Amy's, she and I kind of "party-jacked" the whole idea...which was originally Megan's.
We went all out for "just" a movie night.
Vase of sunshiney flowers!
Sunshine garland - I made this by cutting suns out of 2 different colored yellow papers and then sewed them together!
Table of goodies
Hot chocolate fixin's, cookies, lemon bars, angel food cake, popcorn...!
If you haven't guessed by now, Amy and I LOVE throwing parties. One day she sent me a picture of this table cloth on my phone and asked "too much?" and the first thing I thought was "It's PERFECT!"
Lemonade (nice to have something not quite as sweet!)
The most incredible cookies I have ever seen! Megan of course made these - she's so amazing!! She actually hand cut all the cookies AND piped all the detail - by hand!! WOW! They were tasty too!
Leigh & Jon! (they were the ones who got married on new years!)
Doctoring my hot chocolate!
My chocolately hot chocolate!
Amy's tasty creation!
I hope you all got to warm up with us a bit! Thanks for stopping by!
