So it's been a long weekend, but a good one! Friday we can't really remember, but we DO remember that it was busy and that we were tired. (All of us are sitting here trying to figure it out haha) Oh, and Ash was feeling sick. Boo!
Saturday, we got up bright and early to get ready for J's 9th birthday party! He was so excited. Chris was down browning the ground beef (puke) for the taco rings , and baking 2 cakes! What a great hubby he is. I just super love him. Meanwhile I was tidying up around the house, and being his faithful assistant. The kids worked on their chores..and my brother came over to install our "in the meantime" dishwasher! That was super fun. It's not very often I get to hang out with my bro all day. I was a happy girl. :) Then, before we knew it, it was time to get showered and ready for the party! So I ran upstairs and got ready..just in time to start throwing taco rings into the oven. We had a huge turn out for the party, lots of laughs, and most importantly of all..J had a wonderful time and felt very special.
Then this morning, I got up early and finished cleaning up from the party..then Chris took us all to breakfast at Elmer's! We haven't been there for breakfast as a family in years. It was great. Then we just went messing around town, looking at stuff..buying a few things (you know, the fun stuff..tea, vitamins, coffee, brownies), and of course there was a stop at Starbucks. OH! And we saw Chris' grandparents at Target! How cute that they were out shopping. :) Then we came home and rested for the rest of the afternoon. Now? We're watching The Oscars! It's such a great awards show..something that the whole family can REALLY watch together! How refreshing is that. :) Of course, now that I've said that..it will change. I don't enjoy the hosts, but the show is still great.
Well, tomorrow starts a new week, and we will embrace it with all that we have. :) Because, ladies and gents, it means we are one day closer to spring break, and then SUMMER break! YEEEHAW!
Have a wonderful week..it is what you make it. Really. We can't force others to change, but we can change ourselves. Love you much!
We'll chat soon..
