In an attempt to blog more regularly I am going to follow in my fantastic Sis-in-laws steps and provide my few readers (if that!!) with a weekend update.

~friday we had seth's birthday party. I decided a year or so ago that I wasn't throwing birthday parties every year for every kid. So they get a friend party at 5, 8, 12, and 16. And every year regardless they get a family (meaning grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins...) party. So he was pretty excited this year. He invited a few friends and they went swimming at our community pool.
It was hands down the easiest party I have every thrown. Eliott went and sat at the pool with them and I was going to get little ceasars pizza but my friend was on her way to get some for her family so she picked up mine as well. So all i had to do was walk the food over to the pool! It was great and he had a blast!!
~saturday I went on the youth lake trip! we had sooo much fun! I came away with lots of funny funny memories, one really awesome bruise and lots of sore muscles! So I am gonna go with, it was a success!!
~Saturday evening Eliott and I got to go on a date! WE went to red Robin which was absolutely delicious!!! I think it was perfect after a day at the lake! Then we went errand running and to kohls. I love kohls!!! We got a new church shirt for Eliott and a pair of sunglasses for me (since I dropped mine in the lake!!) for $13ish! Thank you kohls cash and coupons!
~sunday we had church of course. A tired lyddie crawling all over me for the first part. Not fun! A really cranky afternoon. I make no apologies for my crankiness. I did make a texas sheet cake from scratch before. Did you know you have to boil stuff to make that? I had no idea!! And of course I had to make the goody for seth's class so we had funfetti cookies all over the kitchen. And then we had his family b-day party. He chose teryaki chicken. I'd say other than the crankiness seeping out of my skin it was a successful party.

It's that time of year....
This year I have Seth in 3rd grade, Riley in 1st and Lydia is still in Preschool for her speech. So that leaves Lexi and I home together.

The summer seemed way to short for me. I wasn't nearly as ready for school to start as I normally am. But I am excited for all the fun and new things that this year will bring!
