The 4th and then two Birthday Parties in 1 day....


We stayed home this year and BBQ'ed and hung out with friends an family. The kiddies had some sparklers and we did some other ones too. We invited David's parents over for dinner and I served them shrimp cocktails and they brought Coronas and limes, then we had BBQ chicken with baked potatos and corn on the cob. I knew that they wouldn't stay long so I made sure that dinner would ready during the shift change at the hospital. David is still not getting better as of today so please continue to pray for him and his family while they go this difficult time. Jay, (David's dad) was having a nice time chatting sports with Eric and it was nice to see that he could get his mind off of things for a little while. David's mom said that this was real good for him to laugh and talk a bit with someone because he really hasn't gotten to since David has been in the hospital.
Christopher loved the popping fireworks and he giggled everytime one went off. We could see the big fireworks from our corner and we strolled down there and watched for a while too.
Hope all had a wonderful and safe Fourth of July!!!!

My nephew Christophers 2nd birthday party was today. My sis had it over at her father-in-laws clubhouse and it was a pool party. He LOVES Thomas the Train so his party was just that. I even made his cake. Isn't it cute! One of the first gifts that he opened was the Thomas carrying case that I bought him and that was it, he was done with gifts. He took off and only wanted to play with the carrying case! His mommy and daddy opened the rest but a couple of them caught his eye. The Little Einsteins dvds that he got he studied like he was reading them, and then they opened this HUGE homemade Thomas blanket he he loved it!
HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY CHRISTOPHER!




~After Christophers party we went to Emmy's party. She had a candy party this year. It was real very cute, her mom had candy decorations and candy games and candy for prizes and the kids got to make cotton candy and they had a chocolate fountain going with marshmellows, strawberries and cookies for dipping. The girls sang to the High School Musical soundtrack and they are getting good already! The the girls got into their jammies and Heather had a total of 7 girls for her slumber party.
HAPPY 7TH BIRTHDAY EMMY !!!!

Aren't they just so cute!

Today is my last day off and it has been wonderful and was much needed at that. Tomorrow I go back to work and the kiddies go back to daycare. We have had a lot of fun between our vacation and the fourth of July and the b-day parties we had to just relaxing and hanging outside BBQ'ing and letting the kiddies play in their pool and on the slip and slide. We will continue our summer fun and we have many more b-days coming up too. Hope all are enjoying your summer so far!
