This weekend was my birthday (Halloween baby!) and it didn’t disappoint. First of all, Shell was in town visiting from Connecticut (can she live further away??) and I was so happy that she came to visit and because everyone loves her so much, some other cute girls came too and we had a great time! Shelley came with Thad (20 months), Heidi came with Sadie (2 years ish), Breanne came with Brielle (10 months) and Brigitte came with Leah (1 year ish)! It was a party for sure! The kiddos had a blast scattering toys everywhere and watching Baby Einstein (Sadie was literally inches from the TV most of the time). We were basically oblivious and just ate a lot of brownies and talked a lot! It was so fun to have them at my house and the kids are a blast and sooo stinkin’ cute! I’ve said this before, but Shelley is really the best person ever, she is such a good friend and I give her a lot of credit for helping me make good decisions through my life because of her example and friendship. I tear up just thinking about her living far away but I’m glad I got to see her! Somehow, Shell manages to be friends with everyone and she honestly brings people together. I know so many great people because Shelley was friends with them first! I love this girl :)
Heidi, Bre, Shell, me, and Brigitte. We didn’t run out of things to say and I loved having them over! Next…..is birthday weekend! Dan is of course the best (did I mention he cleaned up the house before my friends came over while I was at work? Love him…). And he was like a child when he gave me presents in bed because he was so excited. He did awesome and he got me a new camera! I love it and it’s so tiny but has a lot of sweet features and it’s great! I can’t wait to take it on our cruise in December. We went to a corn maze and carved/painted pumpkins Friday night. We were one of the only people over age 16 at the corn maze but we still loved it. Dan made this wonder and he also carved a huge bat pumpkin that I didn’t take a picture of but trust me, it was awesome :) I decided to paint my pumpkin and this is how it ended up. Dan traced the bat for me because I have no artistic skills whatsoever. But we had fun and we watched M.J.’s Thriller afterwards! Sunday we had some family over for dinner and I didn’t take a lot of pictures (the kids distract me too much!), but it was fun. We used dry ice to make “witches brew” rootbeer. This picture is awesome and I wish there was sound because the cackle he was making was amazing.
Like I said, I didn’t take many pics, but I loved having family over and it was a blast. I got some great presents and once again, my birthday was a success!
