Now back to the entertaining details of one of the best weekends I've had in a while. And to be honest, I needed a weekend like this for some time. My sisters, who live out of town, came for a visit. Hadn't seen them in some time. One stayed at my house. And we stayed up talking about random little things. About the blog, work, the kids, our pets, the things we love. I can go on and on. It was good to just catch up since we sometimes don't get to do that too often. I love both my sisters and my brother. I am very glad to have them all in my life and also my kids lives.
Saturday, the kids had a basketball game that was just crazy. We thought we had the win until the other team came back to tie the score. At the end of the game, E grabbed the lose ball and went for the game winning shot but just missed. That had us all on our feet. My heart was pounding out of my chest! And A even had a change to score but several kids from the opposing team swarmed him. I love watching the kids play. I feel like a proud mama. I enjoy seeing them have fun.
After the game, my sisters, mom and myself planned a little surprise party for A. It was his sixth birthday. We hadn't come up with what to do for his birthday. So it was a last minute thing. We rushed to the stores to get balloons, streamers, cake supplies and party hats. Then rushed home to set everything up. The hubby and A arrived home to walk through a curtain of streamers and balloons. We shouted surprise and the smile on A's face was just priceless. After that we ate and I finished A's Spurs cake. Which was yummy of course!
So what do I do to cap off this perfect weekend? Blog, of course! And enjoy some wine in my new wine glass. It's a cute hand painted glass that says, "It's all about me". And sometimes it is all about me! Why? Because sometimes you need to take care of yourself first so you can be a better mother, wife, sister, daughter & friend. That is a whole different topic that I'll be sure to share with you later. For now, I hope you enjoyed hearing about my weekend. And wherever you are, I hope you had a great weekend. Feel free to share your day or your whole weekend with me on Facebook, Twitter or email. Have a good night and a better tomorrow!
