I have a total of 2 birthday and 2 holidays to pull off within 11 days. I might need to take another brain vacation soon but for now I’m holding it together, but just barely. I like it when Easter is in April instead of March because then I can do justice to both St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. When my holiday traditions overlap that’s where I don’t feel comfortable, and my multi-task button get’s a little frayed.
My girls loved their little leprechaun socks. I couldn’t pay my boys enough to wear them so I didn’t get them any. Their loss, well not really because they didn’t have any this cute in larger sizes.
Yesterday after some mad spot cleaning we celebrated Evo-man’s birthday, with some of his friends.
I made some ooey gooey chocolate brownie cake with the mint filling that I mentioned before and everyone devoured it. However, I think most 12 year old boys will devour just about anything containing sugar. Then my husband took the kids to or local skating rink for Retro night (70’s & 80’s Disco plus). I kind of skipped the opportunity to go so I could stay home with Princess and Hope. There wasn’t quite enough room in our Tank with all the party guests. That and no matter how powerful my imagination is I can’t fake skating like I can fake dancing. So when they play the oldie but goodie song called, ‘Another One Bites the Dust,’ well lets just say that it wouldn’t be an understatement if they dedicated it to me.
My big highlight of the weekend was seeing Evo-man become a deacon. I can’t believe he’s that old. I about fell over when I realized that he was the same age that Abner and T-rev were when we had them start babysitting. I don’t think he will get the experience to babysit for a while yet, but it was still a shock.
Guess what he got for his birthday.
A light saber! See how happy he is about it. It isn't one of those Wal-Mart fall-apart type but the really cool ones that cost five times as much. T-rev had to go out the next day and buy his own. So all weekend the boys have been impromptu sword fighting. T-rev even brought his to the Easter Devotional but I made him leave it in the car. And I thought they would grow out of the whole sword fighting thing when they left grade school. I guess I thought wrong, but hey, it’s easy to think wrong when you have to multi-task and take care of a half dozen plus 1 kids, a dog, cat, and my imagination.
Now I’ve got to get them off to bed so the leprechauns can make an appearance.
