Well, today is my birthday & I'm up crazy early. I kinda enjoy when this happens though - the house is quiet & I get to be by myself for a little while. That's one of the reasons I enjoy my walks so much. Don't get me wrong, I ADORE my children, but it's nice to have a little time alone with your own thoughts instead of constantly worrying about everyone else's needs.
Today should be kinda busy. We're watching my niece for a few hours this morning while my SIL runs in a 1/2 marathon (who know, by this time next year - maybe I'll be running with her). After that, my Mom's work is having their family day & she's invited us to go with her. It's usually pretty fun for the kids, they usually have games, blow-up stuff, & a little mini train for the kids. Brock & Alyssa have plans to bake me a birthday cake this morning, so after the family day, my parents will probably come over for some cake (they live next door - which is GREAT).
This evening my SIL is watching the girls so that Brock & I can go out for my birthday. I think we'll probably catch a movie & get some dinner. We had a blast at the pumpkin patch yesterday, except I got stung by a yellow jacket. They had a lot of neat stuff. We couldn't convince Alyssa to go through the straw crawl though - she's a bit of a scardy cat. The girls really enjoyed the petting zoo, I think their favorite was the Shetland (sp?) Pony. The pics I put up are the girls picking their pumpkins from the field that the hayride took us to. This was the last thing we did buying mums & heading home. We did get up our little scarecrow display, but I haven't taken pics yet - I'll post them later. I'm sure this weekend won't be great for my weigh-in on Monday, but it's only your birthday once per year - right.
