In the end, it was a much-needed workout that led to better sleep and more productivity the next day. Now THAT'S what I needed!
Speaking of productivity, today is...
Mr. William's parents, Josh & Stephanie
Danae & Will playing...or maybe fighting
Trying to get a decent picture with the kids
Despite the rain, we had a great time hanging out, playing, talking, laughing, and eating! It was wonderful to just sit, relax, and catch up with deeply missed friends. :o)
Today holds another trip for Danae and Mommy! While Curt is still driving home, Danae and I will drive a little over an hour (close to Allentown) to attend a baby shower for a friend I haven't seen in over 4 years. Hmm....maybe I'll just drive another hour north of the baby shower and go to The Office Convention in Scranton this weekend! ;)
Danae also had a fun weekend at home, with her Nana & Papa. My parents graciously came out from NJ for the weekend to stay with their youngest granddaughter. From the stories we are hearing from both ends, it sounds like they had a fun weekend, too! Nana, of course, took lots of pictures. Here are a few until I get more from her. :o)
Oh, and as far as Tackle It Tuesday goes...well, between storytime at the library, hanging up new curtains, playtime, grant writing, lacrosse e-mails, making cupcakes with my daughter, housework, laundry, and running errands, I got my day's worth of accomplishments. :o)
I pretty much just baked the cake and slapped on the background frosting (not much creativity there). Curt's the talented one who cut the cake and then drew Dora just by looking at a template that I printed out from the Nickelodeon website. He amazes me.
We'll post more pics/video this week! :o)
And here's the poor pinata. It started out good...
Then, after two whacks, it was decapitated! :o) So, it was given emergency surgery...
...and then the fun continued! Here's the outcome of the poor bull:
Another great Mexican night to be remembered! Can't wait for the 3rd annual!

Messy up top, messy down below. So, after only 15-20 minutes, here's how it turned out:
Yippee! I got something done...other than grant-writing work! I really encourage you to do the same. A neat and tidy house can clear your mind and give you the motivation to get things done! Have a happy Tuesday!
Danae, Avery, and Aimee!
Ryan! (almost 1 month old)
Navy people (this one's for you, Joel!) :o)
Go ahead and laugh...I know the bump is huge. :o) So, now I need to post my top three picks for prizes (according to the list on the 5 Minutes for Mom site):
1) #17 (baby warma)
2) # 1 (Momagenda calendar)
