One long week.....

to say the least!! I thought that the easiest way to play catch up would be to make one huge post with several slideshows. So, sorry ahead of time for the overabundance of our lives!!! However, there is lots of good stuff here!!!!

I will first start by stating that my sweet little Lily Kate was sick four days last week with a horrible tummy bug. She was so pitiful! However, when she did feel like eating again, she helped herself....

So, let's start with Soccer. Mac started last week and it is his first time ever playing a sport. Needless to say, we are thrilled!!! He is loving it; having loads of fun (not to mention that he is so stinkin' cute in those shin guards)!

Next was a birthday party for one of our greatest friends; Harper!! She had a super cool party with face painting, popcorn, sno-cones and a jump castle! We had such a good time and the kids loved getting painted up!

After Harper's party, it was time to get ready for Mac's.....

Mac's birthday was Friday and since Lily Kate was still recovering from her tummy catastrophe, I opted not to venture out during the day. However, I was convinced that by dinner time she could handle an outing. So, we celebrated the actual birthday with a special dinner at Chili's. I thought for sure they would sing to him, but no. Oh well, he didn't know the difference. We sang to him but I don't think he heard us because he was way too in to the dessert...can't blame him! Lily Kate just didn't understand why it wasn't her birthday...too cute.

It was the perfect day!!!! Mac's party was wonderful: perfect weather, cute costumes, wonderful friends...need I go on? The best thing about it was that this year, Daddy was here for it!!! So, we really outdid ourselves. Spiderman jumpcastle, ice cream sundaes, spiderman action cake, and a spiderman bicycle!!!! We had so much fun and cannot believe our little pumpkin is four! Oh, and I have to give a special "THANK YOU" to Leslie...she was such a great help that one of the children told her "thank you for having me!" before he left!

Lastly, the morning after was filled with party hangover in the air. Mommy's eyes were swollen she was so picture of that. So, to lighten the mood, Mimi broke out her surcies for the kids. As you can see, they had no complaints!!!!

So, that's it in a nutshell. Hope it was worth your hour to browse through our week!!!

A royal affair...

Saturday was our good friend Abby's 4th birthday. A prince and princess party. Luckily, I was able to find a knight costume and as most people are aware, princess outfits are available anywhere all year long. The kids were thrilled to be dressing up and had a great, great time!! Cotton candy, cookie making station, jump castle, yah!!! Oh, and don't forget the cupcakes and princess cake! Happy, happy birthday princess Abby!!!

May we NEVER EVER forget....

No matter how hard we try words simply cannot express the horror, the shock, and the revulsion we all feel over what took place in this nation on Tuesday morning. September 11 will go down in our history as a day to remember.
Today we say to those who masterminded this cruel plot, and to those who carried it out, that the spirit of this nation will not be defeated by their twisted and diabolical schemes. Some day those responsible will be brought to justice, as President Bush and our Congress have so forcefully stated.
-Rev. Billy Graham

I am SO proud of my country. I will never forget what happened and hope that no one else does either.

A funny from Mac...

Setting: About 3 miles from our house a Chili's is being built. Michael and I love Chili's and have been talking to each other about how we can't wait for it to open because we don't have one near us and never get to go (i.e., the kids have maybe eaten there once). Mac is currently obsessed with ANY and all superheroes. He has spiderman, batman and superman pajamas and one batman costume complete with mask. While Mimi was visiting this weekend he bounds downstairs in his batman costume and walks up to Mimi.

Mimi: "Hi Darlin!"
Mac: "No. I'm batman"
Mimi: "(with hands on her cheeks and a scared look; playing along perfectly) Oh my! Batman, are you here to save me?"
Mac: "No. I am here to take you to Chili's."

First day of school

Yah!!! School has begun and no one could be happier than Mommy!! The kids had no problem; they went right in and began to play with toys. I did however keep Lily Kate home with me due to a nasty all over rash. We "acted as if" and took pictures just the same, but maybe she will get to go on Thursday. Either way, I am just glad to be back to a schedule!
