Today I have lots of cleaning up to do ... I also need to res a bit from a really full weekend. It was such fun. Friday was a lot of racing around to plan a birthday party for our two year old grand daughter. Decided on Dora the Explorer and fond all sorts of decor, puzzles, blanket, pjs, socks, panties, toys and dolls. I'd already gotten her too many presents so this was a bit insane, but it all made for an amazing sight when she arrived for dinner party. I also did a cute cake all about Dora using bath toys, adding some cupcakes, candles and the actual cake was not too big. I cooked tur-duck-hen for the first time and filled out the meal with broccoli, green salad, sugar free jello with berries, mashed potatoes, pumpkin rolls, cranberry sauce and choices of light ice cream. Yum! Saturday I went to 2 basketball games to watch grandsons play, went to dojo to watch their tae qwon do class, and shopped for a fridge for our house that our daughter's family is living. Though not very old, the other one died on Friday ... Ouch! After that it was party time and so much fun. Ziva loved that it was all for her! Late that night we had bed and breakfast guests arrive after a wedding. I was so tired, but managed to be sociable and visit with the lovely couple before we all crashed. The money paid for this goes to scholarships tha a women's group I'm part of helps fund. Sunday morning I had to be up before our guests to get offe going and a nic breakfast prepared. The timing was such that I had to midd worship which felt like such a loss. I rested a little by starting a Christmas jigsaw puzzle while watching football with my dh. But the quiet didn't last as we had committed to babysitting 3 grandkids for the evening. We never expected that we would be stuck there until nearly 3:00a.m. Dh had to arrange to take the morning off from work to sleep. He is very unhappy with our daughter and son-in-law right now. Oh well, it was a fun weekend. Now it's onwards to Christmas ... Party and dinner here on Friday and a late flight out that night to spend a week with more family. Can't wait!
