We celebrated Easter and 4 birthdays
Sunday, April 20, 2014
Saturday was a full day with family. We had one birthday at the end of March, one a week later and two (twins) in April, and to celebrate all at once was the idea- plus the best way the family could all get together for Easter was to do it the day before Easter. So it was a full house and a good day.
I am allowed to have 3 "cheat meals" a week, if I want to, on my eating plan, so I wasn't too worried about having a little bit of cake, so I tried all three kinds (yeah, can you believe it?!) I took a forkful of one, and a very small piece of the other two.
Looks like I stayed in my calorie range for the day, so that's good. :)
Oh yeah, one of the birthdays was mine, and I got a mini trampoline (I've liked the idea one of my spark friends has of running on hers, and I see there are lots of exercises on youtube and so on to follow too) for those, a burning bush (I've wanted one of those plants for some time), and a gift card to Amazon. Yay :) It's nice when people go in on something together to get what you want (they do ask for lists of ideas!). Oh yes, hubby and I got a joint gift of a foot bath that is supposed to massage your feet. I didn't want to tell her we already had one. But hey, now we could both soak our feet at the same time, right? hahaha
One family had a couple hours trip, but the other much longer. Sounds like they were planning to go part way home and then stop at a hotel so it wouldn't be such a long drive back in the morning.
It was nice to see and be with everyone. :)
I hope you each have/had a lovely celebration as well.
Happy Resurrection Sunday/Easter!
