The wonderful, yet often hairpulling life story of a stay-at-home mom of five cuties (Hailey, Shelby, Dylan, Ashley & Logan) and the journey through life raising our family with the best hubby around (love you, Kevin), and enjoying the blessings God provides to us daily while trying to keep it all in perspective when bumps in the road arise!

TGIF! Inauguration Day, Finish-cake day, party prep night and a lotsa tears evening (plus a NYC dress rehearsal)
Well, not going pic by pic tonight...sleep is too precious. But these "extra in our bed" nights are getting old (see pic above) At least someone is sleeping like a baby! Anyway...it was a stay at home day, but not a lay around one...the cake took longer than intended (that just never happens :))...but someone did help by doing the back by himself :) We did multi-task and watched the Inauguration too. :) We did have fun getting our goody bags ready and stuffing our pinata. He loves that pinata...it's like a big, matchbox car! And it was all hands on deck tonight for party prep. We had hoped to go to church for the picnic/movie night, but we just needed a down night to get stuff done and get to bed earlier. Well, that backfired. We did have pizza night in front of the tv. But then the tears started coming (over laundry, cello, violin, being too busy, being too tired, drama, drama)...I think all but one of the kids was crying...and it wasn't who you'd think. It was a rough night...two were pretty hysterical. We are all tired. The silver lining of the day is that our sweet New Yorker had her dress rehearsal tonight for her 1st big show on Sunday--Scenes De Ballet...and she sent me a couple pics. So exciting. Wish I was there...but glad I could see a couple pics. Love that color on her. Can't wait to see it in person in a week!
