Quick Update

I have about four places to go to before picking up Caitlin at 11:10, so here's a quick and dirty update on our weekend festivities--and I forgot to bring a camera, so I have no pictures from Rob's party.

Friday night was the funeral for Rob's grandmother. I missed it because we had sitter problems. I stayed behind with my three and my sister-in-law's two until the sitter (her s-i-l) arrived in time for me to go to the dinner. I'm told the service was nice. The dinner was great amounts of fun--it always is when the whole family--all the aunts, uncles, and cousins--gets together. Rob was trying to get everyone to come back to Cori's to keep the party going, but almost everyone blew him off--he didn't know we'd all be together again the next night! Still, some cousins did come over, and I stayed up til midnight--way past my bedtime!

The party Saturday night was a successful surprise. Most of us were still tired from the night before, plus the kids were present for this party, so it ended much earlier than Friday night's festivities. My kids are exhausted from a whole weekend with their cousins. Seven o'clock came very early this morning. The girls were both saying they didn't want to go to school!

Caitlin's birthday party is Saturday, so now I get to spend the week making the house presentable for company! It's going to be a week of baking cakes and vacuuming--but I will have pictures of that party.

So, if I'm not around much this week, well, you've seen my laundry mountains--you know what I'm up against! Have a good week! See you on the other side...
