but it was the "best weekend EVER" for Dylan. My baby turned 8 on Friday so we celebrated by letting him invite boys over for a slumber party & then skating the next day. Six invitations went out with the assumption that not all would come but we ended up having 5 additional boys at our house! Talk about noisey & rowdy! They stayed pretty amused playing Wii, legos, & air hockey - I just had to settle them down a few times. Funny thing was- Kalli got along really well too. I had thought she would retreat to her room while they were there but she ended up playing right along with them. Lexi & Riley even came over for a while too. But as much fun as Dylan had, I assured him 5 boys at one time was a one & only time thing. :)
And my very exhausted "big" 8 year old:
Here's a little funny from the weekend before when Lexi & Riley spent the night.
And a little bit of scrappiness (done on Saturday after all the company left!).
is what I've been up to so that's the reason behind my lack of blogging. I think things have just become such a routine, we'd not really taken time for much of anything besides the work/school, dinner, homework, bedtime rotation. Same thing, different day. Plus it doesn't really help that it is just so dang expensive to even go drive somewhere to go do something. I paid $3.12 a gallon the other day - which is absolutely ridiculous! Heck I can remember seeing gas for .99 a gallon!!! Ohhh those were the days!
Despite the outrageous gas prices, Jerry wanted to take a little drive yesterday. It was nice to get out of the house & do something different. Plus I got a few good shoots of Jerry & the kids.
And I did a little scrapping too. Not as much as I would have liked but hey - it's something. And something is better than nothing.
