Birthday party filled weekend

I decided it was important to get a few good pictures of Hannah up so everyone would believe me that she is indeed, ok. I asked my almost 9 year old to smile for me and this is what I got.

Golly, isn't she cute! I alway knew I made adorable kids or something like that....

So I snuck up on her while she was working on the Eiffel Tower, being built out of an Erector set given to Simon, and got this picture.

Phew, I was beginning to think we made an ogre!

We went to a really fun birthday party yesterday. Amy always has great birthday parties for her kids. I just don't want to put that much effort into a party. Lazy? Yup! No, I guess mostly I don't care if my kids get a cool party that they may or may not remember but I always enjoy seeing what other moms can come up with. All they want is cake and presents, right? Anyway, the kids had a great time at the dinosaur themed party where they hunted for prize filled dinosaur eggs and got to dig bones out of the dirt.

Then after resting at home for a few hours we went to Misty's evening party. I didn't have daddy help for the party because Dan was at a concert getting beat up for fun. (He likes mosh pits.) I won't ever claim to understand men. I was worried about how long it would take for my kids to self implode but they managed to hold it together through the whole evening. Even Seth. I think they were most upset when I took them home at 9:30! They all tucked in nicely for me. I wish they'd cooperate like that every night.

Today my mom is coming over to do a joint party for Hannah and Paul's birthdays. It's quite the party weekend, isn't it? Then next weekend Hannah is having her slumber party. I have to come up with some stuff for all the girls to do so they don't run a muck in the house till midnight before collapsing from exhaustion.... what am I getting myself into!?!?!?

Onto happy thoughts, here is the Fall wall hanging quilt up on the wall.

I am going to have to put off starting a new quilt for a bit because Dan and I are going to paint my office/sewing room. I am excited to get the lime green with two shades of yellow off the walls in here. It's just a bit too much for the likes of me. I am not a fan of painting but I always like the results.
