I've had a really good day, even if I did fall on my ass this morning. We went to church this morning and stayed and visited with friends afterward. When we finally headed home I gave everyone a show and fell right off my shoes! Ouchie! I twisted my ankle and fell hard. That I could handle but I really didn't like the wet rump I ended up with or the show I gave the kids who happened to be outside at the time. Those kids were pretty sweet though and asked if I was ok as Jim hauled me back up and helped me to the car.
So, sore ankle and knee and me had to get ready for the kids coming out for a homemade pizza party. Jim was a big help but when it comes to the cooking, he is kind of a fish out of water. We have a deal. I cook and he cleans up. He definitely has the worst end of the deal - I'm a messy cook. Fortunately I had done a lot of the prep work yesterday, cooking the hamburger, italian sausage, & sausage yesterday and chopping the green onions, green pepper, and black olives yesterday too. I make my pizza dough from scratch - you know the kind that uses yeast - it is more work but it is SO worth it!
The kids and their families showed up around 1:30 and we visited and snacked for awhile. A couple of hours later I rolled out the dough. That is when the fun began. The kids "built" the pizza. Imagine a 3 year old, 2 five year olds, a 9 year old, and a 10 year old putting the toppings on pizza. Oh, yea and a screaming one year old in the background. At this point I was almost (but not quite) glad that Julie and her 4 kids didn't make it. I'm not too sure what we would have done with 4 more kids throwing toppings around. It was wild!
We chowed down on the best pizza in the whole world and then topped it off with hot brownies topped with vanilla icecream. YUM!
And now I am sitting with my bum foot propped up. The swelling isn't nearly as bad as I expected. What a wonderful day!
