It was a Beautiful Weekend
Over 50 people fed, 5 dozen cupcakes baked, watching my kids get icing all over their faces—priceless.
Last year, on earth day, I woke up in labour. I got my hair done, dragged Kristin along in case I couldn't drive home, called my parents to come look after daughter one (while the hubby and I were gone), and waited for the arrival of daughter two. When she came out—very quickly—I got to hold her while she was still attached (between my legs after standing to deliver her) because the second midwife hadn't had time to get to the hospital before she debuted. She was tough and strong and beautiful.
Now she walks, talks (I can understand her) she climbs, and falls, and finds herself quite funny. She is tough and strong and cuddly, and every bit as sweet as daughter one.
I am lucky, very lucky.
Her birthday weekend was beautiful, warm and sunny. Everyone enjoyed being able to sit out after so much cold, wet weather.
Enjoy a virtual cupcake from the party! Coconut, morning glory and black bottom, yum!
I should also point out that I do shower or bathe almost everyday. Not sure if I made myself clear in my last post, it was late when I wrote it and I was a bit loopy. Hope I didn't scare too many of you away ;—) Not that I stay clean after a day spent with the girls. I usually wear most of their meals by days end.
