Weekend Recap

Well, we managed to have a birthday party! I was getting a bit worried about the weather as it had rained all day Friday and it was really overcast Saturday morning (with a forecast of sprinkles throughout the day), but it cleared off so we were able to mostly keep things outside... I forgot to do the little activity and give out goodie bags, though. Talk about scatterbrained mama! We still had a ball, though... Lots of food (hot dogs with all the fixings), playing, roasted marshmallows, sticky faces, giggling, and oohs and aahs. (You can click on any of the photos for a larger view)

Bad news yesterday, though: both kiddos were running fevers, so we ended up not going to church. Neither were violently ill, just whiny and rather clingy. They seem better today, but we're still laying low. I still have some cleaning up to do, preparing for company later this week, and will do a grocery run tonight.

One thing I learned the hard way for Birthday parties. You need friends! You need someone taking pictures and someone else to remind you of all the little details.
Looks like you all had a good time. Sorry the kids are sick. I hope it doesn't get worse.

Don't you get mother's day where you are?

Hope your kiddies are feeling better soon! James informed me that 'Burpy Fuzz' is in his class. Apparently even James has taken to calling her took me a while to figure out what he was talking about!

Happy (late) Mother's Day!

I bet the kids didn't even notice a missing activity or goody bag! Looks like they had a blast!

My favorite pic was the one of all the kids lined up around the table with their plates waiting on the birthday cake. Sugar's such a good tool to bring order back. I thought it's funny that Little D is in line waiting too. Shouldn't he be behind the cake waiting to blow out the candle and getting the first piece?
