Party's finally over!

Well, the party went over very well... I suppose. I was completely worn out, Bobby was too! I don't think I realized how hard it would be to cook a meal for other people (I don't do that often) especially while being that tired. I didn't realize how hard it would be to have everything done at the same time, especially in a tiny kitchen with 4 grown ups and a very excited 9 year old running around. Thank goodness Tad was in the den! The mac and cheese got kind of cold before everything else was ready, but all in all, everything turned ok. It was nice to actually cook a meal for my parents. They are the ones who always cook for us, so it made me feel good to do it for them. Lexie opened her presents, we had gingerbread cake and that was it... it was time to rest. Well of course we had to get in the pool. So I had to go to Walmart, for probably the 5th or 6th time this week. It seems here lately that that's where I spend most of my time... Anyway, ...had to get a baby float and some swimmy diapers. I talked to my mom while on the way there and she told me my uncle was being taken to the hospital by ambulance. He and my aunt have been sick for probably two weeks now. I won't go into all of the details, (I don't want to put all of their business on the internet without their permission) but he came home from being in the ER... he didn't want to stay over night. I'm sure all will be ok, but he's got to go back to the doc for more tests soon. Just please pray for them. They need it right now. Well, we did manage to finally get in the pool (mom wouldn't let me go up to the hospital). The kids had a blast! (Bobby being one of those kids :) Tad was pretty scared at first, but eventually started enjoying himself. I should have taken pictures... We got out at about 10:30... totally exhausted...

I've got clean up from the party to do, and Lexie wants to get in the pool... I suppose I need to get off the computer now. Please don't forget to say a prayer for my aunt and uncle.

Wow! Sounds like a good time, but an exhausting one. I'm glad you all had a great time.

Prayers are on the way for your Aunt and Uncle. I wish them a speedy recovery.

Thanks for the visit. Oh, by the way you can grow Crape Myrtles in either full or partial sun. Find some partial sun somewhere and grow you one. They are so pretty. Now is the time to plant.
