Birthday girl

Last weekend was so incredibly busy. On Saturday morning I had to get up very early to go to the March of Dimes. Since I was the coordinator for my work group, there was no escaping it. I left Sophie at home with Daddy, so he could take her to her ballet class and I took Margaux with the stroller. It was actually very pleasant. The weather was beautiful and I even spotted a couple of turtles at the park. Margaux was semi-cooperative, especially since she had some munchies to keep her busy.

After I got home, I waited for Chuck to come back and I ran out for the party shopping. I went to both Costco and Sam's. I was absolutely exhausted by the time I got home.

I just kind of vegged out until Sophie showed up. She had been playing at the neighbors and fell off a hammock. Her face was scraped everywhere. It just looked awful. It has since then turned several shades of bruise and the scratches are healing.

On Sunday, I got up very early to start cleaning the house. I kept going, making loot bags, and just getting ready until the first guests showed up. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we had to bring the outdoors party indoor. We were a little tight, I think we had about 40 people total, but we made it work.

The kids looked like they had a ton of fun We had a yummy cake and a butterfly shaped pinata.

After the party, I got myself a glass of wine and just chilled. I had a hard time making it through the work week and I'm thankful there's nothing planned this week-end, so I can try to recover!
