A Big Weekend!

Wow! What a weekend we had! As you all know by now, Noah turned 1 on Saturday. I still can't believe it, but alas it IS true! The party was a huge success, and I even got a couple of hours rain-free! The kids got to go outside for a little while, and every kid caught a fish. Then, the lightning started and it was all over for the fun outside. No matter, though, as they had just as much fun tearing through the house playing.

Noah was in his glory, and personally walked up to greet each of his was so cute. He couldn't have been more pleased that all of those people were here to see him! He was just a happy little guy, and the life of the party, let me tell ya! He wasn't much into the cake though! The icing yes, but the cake...definitely no. He just kept scooping icing into his mouth, and everytime he'd get some cake he'd make a yucky face. It was so funny!

I am giving myself a little pat on the back...for this was the first party ever that I did not grossly overcook for. Everything except the cake was completely gone at the end of the party. I am so proud of myself! (It's the little things that make me happy!) Of course, now we will have to work on eating the rest of the cake...but that shouldn't be a problem!

Then of course, on to Mother's Day...what a wonderful day. I slept in until 9:30 or so, and it felt so INDULGENT. Ahhh..... Then I got up and had a little something to eat before we got ready to go. We had a late lunch at First Watch (my FAVORITE) and then went to the Franklin Park Conservatory to see the Blooms and Butterflies exhibit. The kids love the butterflies. Heck, I love the butterflies! Noah's big fun was splashing in a fountain they had. He would have done it all day if we had let him! Then we stopped at Sheri's house and ordered a pizza, and by the time we were on our way home, Noah was ready for bed and fell asleep in the car. So of course, we put him to bed, changed into our old clothes, and Barry, Kendall and I headed outside to get some work done. We got the flower beds weeded and edged...and Kendall "saved" all the earthworms from CERTAIN death, or at least, that's how she saw it. By the time we got inside and got her bathed and ready for bed, it was almost 10. UGH! I was ready for bed by then too! But alas, it was Grey's Anatomy night, so we had to get through that first...and then off to bed with me.

So all in all, it was a fun, successful, and productive weekend. What more can you ask for, except maybe a little more sunshine???
