Lyman Girls 2012

For the past couple of years this is what we have to look forward to in February: 
 This year with all my crazy cravings I suggested we make it a weekend event.  So we did!  Those who could met up Friday evening for dinner at La Jolla Grove Restaurant for an AMAZING dinner.  Ahh, I just love this place.  Everything they have there is soo amazing.  Noelle introduced me to this deliciousness...

I really don't know how to describe it but La Jolla called it Lemon Cake.  Which is a pretty boring name for something so yummy.  The lemon cake had a lemon filling with icing poured all over and a sugar shell that you had to break through to get to the cake.  YUUMMY!

On Saturday the crafts began.  Grandma made little blanket babies with all the little kids and the older ones made Maxi skirts.  They were super easy and turned out cute.  From there many other mini projects were done while I ran out to have lunch with my sisters and run a few errands. 

That evening for dinner Noelle made Chicken Crepes.  They were sooo good.  They were rich and creamy with chicken, cheese and Asparagus.  We were all pretty happy and then Noelle set up the chocolate fondu and I am pretty sure we were in Heaven.

 Marilyn did nails...
 Noelle did a Spa themed auction with Monopoly money.
 The last gift bid was a tie so Noelle decided to do a good 'ole fashioned arm wrestle to determine who got the last gift.  Jensen won!
 Livvy held her money tight for most of the auction just to make sure she didn't want to buy someone's gift that had been opened already.  She got more and more anxious until she finally bid all her money in one shot.  She got bath salts and other goodies that she traded around till her basket was perfect.
 For the "Thank you " take home spa gift Stacy made these adorable bean owls for the little kids.  We tied a ring pop and a little lotion to each one. They turned out super cute and the little kids loved them.  The "big" kids all brought home a Bath and Body Works lotion. Who doesn't like that??!!
 I asked Livvy what her favorite part of the weekend was and she said being with Denver.  She loves this little guy and toted him around with her wherever she went.  She never wanted to let any adult help her out when he was fussy.  She was intent on making him happy.
Thanks Noelle for the awesome crazy fun weekend!
