Troy took the older kids to cut firewood Saturday afternoon, and I was taking apart an old quilt that I'm repairing for a cousin. I also had fabric laid out on the table, cutting out pattern pieces for a tunic top. Sawyer was taking a nap, and I was enjoying the quiet house. But then Troy called, said his truck was broke down and they needed a ride. I threw on some sweats and woke up the munchkin, and we headed out to pick them up.
Well, I pulled into town and saw a huge crowd at the park. I noticed some of the kids running along the sidewalk were my nieces and nephews. And I thought, huh. Who's having a party and didn't invite us?! How rude!
|this is what 40 really looks like :)|
There were people there who I hadn't seen in ages, it was amazing and made me feel really loved. My brother Tom came down from Iowa with his daughter, which means I have gotten to see both of my brothers this month! My bro-in-law brought a trailer full of hay bales, and we all piled on and went for a ride. There were kids everywhere, running and playing and having so much fun. And they had a fab buffet of pulled pork and sides, and a whole table of desserts. My sis-in-law even brought me an outfit (bra included!) in case I showed up in my pjs. They know me so well.
We tried to take some photos, but we were all laughing at Troy & Jade's suggestions of things to say - "saggy boobies" was really cracking us up for some reason. I don't know how any of them turned out, I didn't have my camera but I'll share them once I get copies.
I spent the rest of the weekend with a big smile on my face, so a huge thank you to all of my family and friends for that! :) Makes turning the big 4-0 next week a little easier.
