always happy for the weekend!

Well, I managed to get halloween put away and thanksgiving out.  The county has off on election day, so its a good day to take halloween down.  I actually started at 5:00 am and had all of it packed up and back upstairs  before noon.  then I brought down my one bin of thanksgiving and it took me the rest of the day to put it out and get it just right...    oh that darn sickness...  hyperdecorphilia!  lol!
IN other news..  Yesterday was Violet Eloise's first birthday  and today is her party.  She is sooo stinking cute.  I really can hardly contain myself around her!  (or any of my pies for that matter.)
 I just have to say that Im totally impressed by all of my children and their spouses and significants and the way they take care of their babies!  they are all really good parents.  Im so grateful for that.  Im probably more aware of it due to my job where I see piss poor parenting every single day..   So I know and appreciate good parents when I see them! Anyways my babies are really good parents to my grand pies..  I am so thankful for that.  which brings me to these two pictures..   What a wonderful glorious way to greet my little violet when she woke up on her first birthday!!  with birthday morning balloons!!  
How exciting for her!  
looking forward to her party today.. 
camera battery is charging... all my grandpies and family will be there..
tomorrow is Carsons birthday gathering (step grandson)  so a busy weekend.
and inbetween all the partying.. I have a couple dozen more bears to make..  but I did finally get Janes bears finished and in the mail and she has received them and loves them all. 
woo.. that was a big order! but they did turn out cute.

have a great day everybody!

You can probably pat yourself on the back for having children who are good parents! Am I right?

You really have a beautiful family, Viv. Have fun celebrating! Congratulations on getting Halloween put away too! I still have a few Halloween things lingering in the lowest level of the house.
