back-to-school party

After the 1/2 day of school, the girls came over for a little back-to-school party. It gave them all something else to look forward to as we kicked off another year. We decorated with their school colors and school supplies. Carly picked the menu....pizza, fruit, & cheese puffs {because what's a party without cheese puffs?} and she decided on ice cream sandwich dessert. I made pasta salad and broccoli cornbread for the moms.
The girls get along so well together even with the age range. We have a brand new 1st grader, 2 3rd graders, 2 4th graders, and 2 6th graders. Now if there was another food that they would all eat besides cheese puffs!
Here's to more memories with friends!

What a wonderful tradition! And who doesn't love the cheese puffs? Okay, I admit I am partial to the crunchy ones, but all my kids go for the puffs too.

You're way too fun! Whitney is a total cheese puff lover so I could definitely see her putting those on the menu with the pizza.
