we’re up and running here again! we’ve had no technical difficulties in a few days (other than the still broken camera), but the busy-ness of life has kept me far from the computer. here’s a quick recap of my last few weeks (maybe i’ll eventually get back to these times with posts and pictures… maybe):
-my parents were here for a week working on the guest house/garage (monday to sunday)
-the day they left my sister-in-law and my niece came (sunday to thursday)
-a couple days later i ran in a mini triathlon, then the girls had their first dance recital, then the kids and i packed up to go to my parents’ house (sunday to thursday)
-we got home thursday afternoon and that evening our very good friends came and stayed with us (thursday to monday)
-then my in-law’s came to help with silas’ party (thursday a.m. – sunday a.m.)
-then my parents came again (thursday p.m. to sunday)
-then the rest of my husbands’ family came (friday to today)
phewwww! talk about nonstop! these last few weeks have been filled with so much fun, but i am looking forward to a bit of family time alone.
so… without further a do, here are some pics from silas’ party (all taken by my brother-in-law – thanks david!):
it was a really fun party. a huge thank you goes out to all our family who helped us in the days before to pull this all together. i think all the planning and prepping was half the fun! now all of the decorations and party supplies have been packed into a big ol’ box and are on their way to bend, oregon to celebrate another little guy’s first birthday, after that they’ll be posted on ebay as a “party-in-a-box”!
