Weekend Plans

This weekend is jammed packed. We are attending The Blarney Blast at church, it will be a night of food, friends and Irish music and can we say...NO CHILDREN!!! Yeah, a babysitter~ I can't wait! Well, I guess I can seeing as it is tonight and I only have all day today to clean up around here. My house looks like a tool chest, a painter's easel, a mess. I have my running shoes on, had my first cup of coffee, kids eating breakfast~ I am ready to run around and clean this place up. Kinda. I mean who actually is ready to clean.
Who looks forward to that? Ugh!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Saturday is our Annual St. Patrick's Day Party! You can be sure I will have my camera out~ last year I found Guiness up the wall! Not sure how that happened, but it was a busy crazy night. We are going to have quite a few children, so I have cleaned out the toys and I am putting extra seating in the toyroom so that the room will be more inviting to some of the parents to supervise. The nice thing is that the toyroom has nasty carpet that I could care less about, so if there are spills~ I don't care! I will get some pictures up as soon as I can. I wish all of you could join us~ Now that would be a fun party!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I sent out email invites to the family and attached this picture. Why? Because the invites were kinda last minute and I wrote the email from Dels point of view...she hijacked the computer since her mom couldn't seem to find the time to send out invites. It turned out cute~she signed it... *Professional Party Girl*


Sunday is Dels baptism. I am really looking forward to it because it is such a special day. All of the girls have worn the same baptism outfit and it is one of those things that I look forward to each and everytime. Putting on the outfit, taking pictures and gloating over the baby A.L.L. D.A.Y!! The pouring of the water on her forehead and the look of amazement on her face...I just cherish this. The newest cousin, born in December is also being baptised. The girls both have the same middle name, are being baptised together...I am just picturing them growing up together and that this is just the beginning of all the fun things they will do together! We are having a little party afterwards, with some food, fun, cousins and cake. So I will sign off for now, try and check in between it all and wish everyone a wonderful weekend and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I just loved this and had to pass it on to all of you...

Joey's baptism was the first day I actually FELT like a mom. Such an amazing day. And all of my boys wore the same little white suit too. Love it. Congratulations!

Our church/school has the same type of Irish party fundraiser around St. Patrick's Day too. We call it Shenanigans. Good time!

Have a blast at your party! I wish I could come. And yes take tons of pics for us!

BTW- Love the pics of Dels. So sweet!

Those pics are adorable! How exciting that it is baptism day! My baby has a cousin that is jus a few months older than her and it makes me happy to think about them growing up and being BFFs.

♥ What a cute idea with the invites! My oldest is going to be baptized in June and I'm still trying to figure out what kind of dress I want to make for her! So many ideas... :)

Have a great time at your party!

That is one packed weekend! My oldest is just a month younger than her cousin and you would swear they were sisters!!! Even as infants they played *together* and not parallel. So yes, you guys will have loads of fun with your babies growing up together!

My youngest is only 4 months younger than another a cousin. Can't wait to see how they all interact!

Hope your weekend is fantastic!!!

LaskiGal said...

No wonder I rarely see you around! You are so, so busy!!! I bet all the hard work is paying off.

J was baptized a few weeks ago. It was such a lovely ceremony. It was just us, the priest, a few friends and family. I loved it. My niece was baptized last weekend. She was so beautiful! I, like you, am eager to watch J and his little cousin grow up together.

The party sounds awesome. I'd be eager to learn what the heck happened with the Guiness . . .

Take lots of pics (oooh, and I'd love to see Del in the dress!) and have a wonderful weekend!

Maria said...
