Here are pictures of our friends' daughters. They are such smart and sweet girls! Sawyer and Olivia had a blast playing with them!

We had this meal last night for our guests. This, along with a spinach salad, made a delicious meal that even the children liked (except for the picky one)! This is one of those fun recipes to try when you're tired of cooking "the same ole things" over and over. This certainly isn't your every day meal! The recipe is awesome because it's packed with vitamin-rich veggies! If you are slow chopping vegetables, like I am, allow yourself a full hour to wash, dry, and chop the vegetables.
* 1 pound reduced-fat cream cheese
* 3 scallions, trimmed and chopped
* 1/4 cup milk
* 2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning or Creole Seasoning
* 2 sweet red peppers, cored, seeded and finely diced
* 2 boxes (10 ounce each) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and squeezed dry
* 3/4 pound imitation crabmeat, shredded
* 2 eggs
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
* 1 jar (1 pound) alfredo pasta sauce
* 12 no-boil lasagna noodles
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Heat oven to 350°. Coat 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Stir cream cheese, scallions, milk and Old Bay seasoning in bowl until smooth. Stir in peppers, reserving 1/2 cup, and broccoli, reserving 1 cup. Add crabmeat, 1 egg, salt and pepper. Whisk remaining egg into alfredo sauce.
2. Spread 1/3 cup alfredo sauce into baking dish. Top with 3 noodles, one-third of the crab mixture and one-fourth of alfredo sauce. Repeat layering twice. Top with 3 noodles; sprinkle with reserved red peppers and broccoli. Pour on remaining alfredo sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
3. Bake, covered, at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes.
