And at home we had a big party, our biggest party ever, in fact. 40 people in our house made quite a crowd! It was not a surprise party, as I could not possibly come up with a legitimate excuse for getting the house ready, nor would I have been able to do it by myself considering we had stuffy, sick kids throughout the week.
And some closer to home, cute as a button presents like these two little flowers picked with such love for their Daddy. And little flags and cards, made by hand. (I love little 5 yr. old stick people, don't you?) The one on the card is leaping, as we were informed by Willa.
Smitten Kitchen. Wonderful, wonderful recipes every time!
I was so glad to do it for him too.
It was a fabulous party and Wayne had such a wonderful time. So many family and friends came. We really had looked forward to it all week and it was so worth it. Thank you to everyone who was able to make it and especially to my Mom and Sister-in-law(well almost) who did so much to help pull it off. Many people brought food but they far and away helped so much with food and I never would have had time to prep all of it. My almost sister-in-law miraculously managed to avoid the camera the entire night! An impressive feat considering that my Aunt, The Hilton Village Photographer, acted as my photographer, thank you A.M.!
Needless to say we are all pretty slow today. I think maybe we'll stretch out in front of a movie on our new TV this afternoon and maybe even catch a nap.
