3 in 1

Yesterday was one of those days that I felt like I lived 3 days in 24 hours. Let's break it into thirds since that is how it felt to me.

The first half of the day (Day #1) I spent with my kids, piddling around the house. One of the good things (there are so very few my love) about Nathan being gone is that when I put things away, they stay there for awhile. I managed to find the other half of the floor in our bedroom and the other half of the sink/counter in our bathroom simply by putting things in their place. I felt like I uncovered about 200 more square feet to my house.

The second half of the day (Day #2) was spent preparing for and throwing this girl (Amanda) a baby shower. It was frilly but fun. The girl I was throwing the party with is heir to a catering business so you can imagine how great the spread was. Not to mention the beautiful/typical Naples mansion-like home she allowed us to host it in. We spent hours opening gifts, creating a scrapbook for the baby (Maryn), eating and playing games. It was great!
The third half of my day (Day #3) started with a 20 minute stop at home to grab the kids and then heading over to a 3-year old birthday party for one of Jaxon's friends. It was horse-themed and it came equipped with it's very own pony to ride around on. Plus there was a cotton candy and popcorn machine. Poor Jaxon didn't get any cotton candy b/c I made him wait for the cupcakes to be given out. I don't trust cotton candy.Afterward I rushed my crying, tired children home and tossed them into bed, took the dog out, pumped and hit the pillow myself.

Have you ever had one of those 3-in-1 days?

The day we moved to GA...
Morning breakfast with brother (which was very rare since he lived 5 hours away)
9am court date that made Losiah officially ours
10-2 say goodbye, visit sandals office one last time, visit a friend, leave our house
Then we boarded the plane and flew out here.
Made it to ATL and our new home. It was a crazy day! H

I recall Jaxon riding a horse at Halleluah Night. Did he like it at the birthday party? He looks so big up there!!
