Happy Labor Day! Things around here have been crazy and wild as always. We are officially 10 days away from leaving for Disney, 5 days away from Keeley’s 13th birthday, and 2 days away from Poppy’s birthday!! The month of September has a lot of special birthdays in it which keep us very busy. Today, I am hanging around the house with Jacque and have been doing some baking and fall decorating. Hubby went on a fishing trip and the kiddos are gone on holiday visitation and won’t be home until later tonight. So I have been able to get a lot of things accomplished.
This evening we are celebrating Poppy’s birthday with a dessert bar so I made his favorite cookies and a new dessert I’m excited to try. I have been packing for Disney a little this weekend trying to make things easier on myself next week. I’m definitely a planner. I am so excited about our upcoming trip but I’m trying not to wish time away too quickly because I really want to embrace this special vacation with the kids. This is the first time I have ever visited Disney in the fall and we were lucky enough to get the free dining plan that was offered so this trip is going to be very different than past ones. I am excited to try all the tasty food and the fact that it is FREE is even better!
Saturday kicked off Razorback football and I was very excited! Hubby and I went to Brandi and C.J.’s house to watch it and then spent the rest of the evening hanging out watching Lost on Netflix. It’s been a good relaxing weekend but I miss the kids. It’s so quiet and lonely without them. I like hearing their sweet voices and the sounds of them playing together. I like our home filled with my very favorite people.
This next week is filled with lots of family time and few big events at work so we will be super busy. The girls are going to spend time with their Aunt Nitni tomorrow for their birthday since we aren’t doing a party for them this year, Wednesday I will be packing the kids suitcases since they won’t be home again before we leave, Thursday we are going out with the Chandler’s and the Lee’s to finalize plans, Friday and Saturday are filled with Log A Load and Sunday I am working to make up hours I will be missing while on vacation! Whew! I’m tired just thinking about it all!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday weekend!
Talk to ya’ll soon!
