Shannon's Party

  I am very tired, and I am still under the weather, but I do love these kids. 

 When I ask the girls to smile at the camera, they smile and jump in the air. (?) It makes for some interesting picture taking. :)

I'm already looking forward to a nice long weekend with the family, and (hopefully) feeling like myself again!
 (I am definitely not pregnant...this time. Haha. It's allergy stuff!)

Two days from now my sister will be graduating from high school, and on Saturday we had a little party for her. Shannon and I are ten years apart, so this serves as a reminder that it's been a decade since I was in high school...and well...that's just wrong! :) 

Now that the girls are older, parties at the park are just a godsend. Built in entertainment. And no worries that my kids are breaking things and getting into someone's priceless stuff. Been there, done that! We enjoyed the outdoors and some delicious food with lots of friends and family.

We were blessed with really great weather, and my mom did a wonderful job putting everything together. I do NOT know how she does all that she does. One time I thought I caught a glimpse of a cloning device in my parent's basement, but I can't be certain if that is what I actually saw. Still trying to unlock that mystery.


Congratulations to Shannon! The world is your oyster. At no other time in your life will you have so much freedom. Enjoy it! Make good choices. Baha. Love you, girly. :)

I'm praying for an energy boost today. It's been a little boring around here, and moms don't get sick days. But I am still, somehow, thankful for all of the drink getting, bottom wiping, fight breaking, mess cleaning, craziness. There could be worse things. Plus, these baby blues have some miraculous momentary healing abilities:

Next time I'll try to remember to remove all of the tag parts before I take pictures of my kid in his hat. :)

Happy day!
