What A Weekend!

Oh wow.  I am a wiped out girl this afternoon.  We have had 3 days of go-go-go and now I’m ready to collapse!  It was all good, fun stuff though so everything was TOTALLY worth it!  Let’s recap:

FRIDAY: Katie had her first-ever friend birthday party!  She will be 6 this Wednesday and with Thanksgiving and stuff going on I thought it would be better to separate things just a little.  So she had 7 of her little friends over from 5-7 for a Fancy Nancy party.  It was the.cutest.thing.ever!  They were giggly and “fancy” and they squealed with delight every time a present was opened.  OMGosh.  Precious.  And after everybody left and the boys had all gone to bed, I sat up with Katie in the living room as she played with all her new toys; I was watching and thinking that I am SO thankful that I am here to enjoy every single moment.

SUNDAY:  I got up at 630am this morning and had my coffee with my devotion time.  Around 7 I hit the treadmill for a lovely half-marathon, 13.1 miles!  I completed my run in 2hrs 3min 37sec…just in time to get cleaned up and head to church!  Afterwards, Zachary, Katie, and I headed to PB to eat lunch and go see Planet 51.  I was afraid that all hype over New Moon would makes things rather hectic and crazy, and while the parking lot was very full, the rest of the theater experience was pretty normal today.  The movie was cute, but you put a tired mama with a full belly in a dark theater and you had a good opportunity to sleep!  I closed my eyes a couple of times, but I don’t think I ever actually dozed off.  I don’t think ;-)

As for the rest of the week, we are just preparing for Thanksgiving on Thursday.  Everyone from both families (mine and Jack’s) comes to our house for Thanksgiving and it is beyond wonderful.  I love Thanksgiving!!  And this year, we are especially thankful for our many blessings.

Ha ha, I fall asleep at movies all the time! Today I went and saw this movie called "The Perfect Gift" which was filmed here locally and it has a great message. If it makes it onto DVD you should check it out, very inspiring message, I think you guys would love it!

I love the party fun to see girl parties since mine are always filled with laser tag and other boy type stuff!

I took my boys to see Planet 51 this weekend too....we got to bypass the loooooong line of pubescent girls and their mothers waiting for New Moon. It was a fun night out!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
