Whole lotta partyin goin on...

Spent the weekend with my mom who came in from Vegas. Darin was out hunting, so it was especially nice to have someone else in the house. We did a whole bunch of this....89 quarts and 26 pints.

Ya, it was insane. We pretty much bottled tomatos for a day straight. I must say though, I felt very accomplished when I was finished.

And then we spent Sunday afternoon celebrating my niece Alyssa's 7th birthday. We hula hooped it up. My mom was inside screaming the whole time that I shouldn't be doing it, but it was so fun. It made me feel like a kid again. We had a bouncer. I passed on this one. Wouldn't want to bounce my babe out too soon.
We opened presents. Gotta love the age where they open their presents (3 of which are the exact same thing) and the others the either already have or aren't too thrilled about getting. But the ones they are happy about, man does the face show it.
She got three of these barbie outfits. This was the first one she opened. Obviously ecstatic. The second one she opened was mine. Excitement until she realized she had already opened the same thing. "I already got this" And I said "I know, duh, I got it so your barbies could be twins." She was pretty much just pissed off by the time she opened the third one. But don't worry, at the end of presents she said to mom, "We're going to take back one, but I want to keep Jessies so my barbies can be twins." Haha. Sucker. Then we enjoyed cake.
Well....some of us enjoyed cake until Shaeley shoved cake in Alyssas face. She didn't like that too much. That is until Shaeley let her shove cake in her face next.
Then she was all about it. She was practically begging people to shove cake in her face.
Man, I love my family.
