Party weekend!! I am relieved the birthday celebrations are over – they left me tired! Now we have 5 months before we have another one 😉
Since it was a holiday Chad was home, we worked out in the morning, ran party related errands then came home for lunch and naps. During naps we did cleaning and yes, more party stuff. I decorated cookies and made cake #2:
After naps we walked to Starbucks and the park. Crazy how the sun is almost down at 4pm now!
Chloe dressed in her poppy shirt for Remembrance Day:
I was SO tired that night but managed to stay awake after the girls went to bed to finish the cake and watch I Love You Man with Chad.
My Mom came over in the morning and helped out with the girls while Chad picked up food and the balloons and before we knew it guests were arriving!
I am super bummed that I forgot to take photos of all the party details – fail. This is only because I love planning parties and really think of these things so when I remembered it was too late I was pretty mad at myself but life goes on.
The good news? The party was awesome, Avery had a blast and all the kids got along great. After the party I felt so grateful for all the love we are surrounded by from both family and friends. I will recap the party later this week.
It was 5pm by the time everyone was gone we had leftovers for supper and called it a night!
We slept until 7am – a win in our house! I ran 7km on the treadmill while Chloe played in the gym – she is getting better at playing alone so I can workout while she is up easier now. Since we did not get to Costco Saturday we went there then grabbed groceries.
Nap time involved us finishing up Christmas lights and hanging out – as much as I wanted to jump into Christmas decor I also wanted to rest.
We had family birthday supper out for my brother and Avery, I was so full I did not get dessert – which never happens!
I only took three photos all day so will share the random three photo I took, Avery’s “morning after party” photo, Chloe’s newest obsession – the ball tent and my supper:
