Last night we had a few of Damien's co-workers/friends over to our house for a pizza, beer and card playing night. Apparently some of Damien's co-workers like to hang out on Friday night after the work week. They invited him along but my husband, great guy that he is, wants to be with his family on a Friday night. But he also doesn't want to miss out on forming relationships with the people he works with. Enter pizza and beer night at our house.
The kids drank rootbeer and the adults drank the beverage of their choice, including homebrew (a yummy Porter). We ordered pizza and we cooked up little g-free english muffin pizzas for Damien in our oven. Then we played cards, all of us together. The kiddos were our sidekicks and filled in spots as our guests left. They loved it! They jump at any chance to meet new people, drink soda and eat pizza. It was all wrapped up by 9:00pm. The scene awaiting me in my kitchen wasn't so pleasant this morning (I didn't touch clean up last night) but the memories were. If any of Damien's co-workers are reading this (you know who you are) - it was fun to have you over. I hope we do it again.
And you know what? Beer bottles littering the kitchen counter, although messy, look pretty in the morning sunlight.
