What a Weekend!!!

I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful my 30th birthday was...

Where do I even start? Well it all started with lunch up at Stacey's house with all my sister-in-law's and cousins--kind of a tradition with the family for each others birthdays. Alisa brought the most delicious Italian Sodas, Natalie picked up Chili's for all, and Jenn made her famous oatmeal fudge bars. So Yummy! We are all outside getting ready to dig in and all of a sudden....I look in the doorway and here comes..jumping up and down, all my sisters and Mom singing Happy Birthday!! First of all, you have to know that I have 4 sisters and they all live all over the place.
1 in CA, 2 in MT, and 1 in UT--my Mom's in UT too. So you can imagine my thoughts when I first saw them here in DENVER--where I live---it was crazy. I couldn't believe my eyes--literally. THey all said I looked so confused at first, and then it all registered that each one of them were here --at Stacey's house in CO!!!!!!! After it all settled in I started hugging each one of them --I couldn't help myself and started bawling!! Now for many of you who know me very well, I don't do that too often, so that just tells you how much this meant to me. (my mom made sure to tell everyone that I started crying--because it was that big of a deal) Oh how I love my Family!!!!

This all came about by My wonderful husband Mike and my cutest sister-in-law Stacey--who says she has been planning my 30th birthday for 2 years now. They both called all of my sisters a couple months before to throw out the idea and they were all on board that day--booked their flights that same day and were ready to keep a secret--and boy did they do a good job. I had even spent a week with most all of them in UT just 2 weeks before and not 1 of them gave any clues as to what was going down! I have never been so suprised in my life!! So after I got over the shock, we ate our lunch and then went down to my house to pack my bags to stay at the Jones' Resort(as all of my sisters referred to it as). Garrett and Stacey were so generous in allowing all of us girls to take over their house for the whole weekend, while they camped out at my house with Mike and all the 8 kids(that's a sacrifice in itself)!

Oh did we enjoy ourselves from enjoying our individual lotions on our pillows, our favorite treats delivered right to our door by Mike( which is a huge sacrifice for him to even step foot in a grocery store) to playing games, to laying out by the pool, sitting in the hot tub, using their workout room, to watching a movie in their Theater, reading lots of books, and plenty of eating, etc...Then to top it all off, Mike took us all to dinner on Friday and then arranged to have all the girls get pedicures together the next morning! I was in Heaven.. this was the best birthday I could ever dream of!! I couldn't have wished for anything more, there is nothing better than being able to enjoy all my sisters and Mom for 4 days straight with no distractions. It had to have been the most perfect present ever...Thanks babe! I love you!!

Thanks to all my family who made it possible to make this the most memorable day in my life!! It will never be forgotten!

Here are the pictures of the big suprise....

Happy St. Paddy's!

Well, the leprachauns found us again this year. The kids were loving all the upside down furniture and of course devoured the trail of gold and green they left for them.

Random pics

Mike celebrated his 32nd birthday this year. Oh how we love our Dad!
I can't believe how old we're getting!
I say that because the big "3 0" is coming way too soon for me!

Just a little piece of our morning.. this is the epitamy of Charly most of the morning and it usually ends up looking like this at night too.
She does clean up very nice I might add, what a cutie.
I can't believe how old my baby is getting. She will be 3 before we know it!
Wesley and his First missing tooth.
He was pretty excited about that thing falling out,
it was loose for months! Now we know why,
that tooth was the longest thing I've ever seen!
Drake did get his cast off, but I forgot to take my camera to take pictures. IT was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. I couldn't believe how yellow and smelly it was. But boy was it a relief to get it off for him and for me. I couldn't bear the smell much longer. IT was quite tragic getting it off though. well not the actual removing of the cast, just afterwards. I brought his other tennis shoe, which I didn't realize, would be a little tricky to get on. It didn't have laces and only stretched so far. I seemed to forget that his ankle would still be pretty sore and wouldn't move to easy. The doctor and I both tried to get his shoe on(he is crying this whole time and yelling at me that he's not going to wear it.)--but he just can't do it. Well- now what? I didn't have anything else he could wear and I'm definitely not carrying him to the car. Keep in mind, he won't even step on it, you would have thought he broke it again. He seemed to think he should get the wheelchair to the car. now maybe I need to be a little more sympathetic, but I knew he was not really trying and he tends to be a little dramatic at times, I'm sure it was a little wierd trying to walk, but at least give it a little effort. SO anyway, the doctor gave him another velcro shoe that he used with his cast to take home with him. SO he agreed he could do that. Well after about a 15 minute walk to the car--taking smaller than baby steps- we made it and then took him straight back to school. He still has a little limp, but is doing much better. I'm sure he was so used to favoring it so much that it took him a few tries to really know that it was healed. I know, he's only 6, I need to be a better Mom and cut him a little slack. Hopefully he'll forget about how impatient I was. (so far --no asking to climb trees--wahoo!)
