Wearin' the Green with Purple Bags Under the Eyes

I am sure that no one is surprised to see that this mouse and I would have a lot in common today!

The boys got up around 7:30 am... too early.  The resulting mayhem woke me also, but thankfully, Grandma came to the rescue.  She was up since about 5:30 am anyhow.  Yay.

Hubby let me sleep in and got the extra boys handed off to parents as he shoveled the 8-ish inches of snow and ice that had drifted into hard blocks around the cars.  Our boys reluctantly began to pitch in.  LOL

It was the usual Saturday routine around here.  Pumpkin has 2 dance classes, and Fuzzy has bowling league. 

About 4:30 pm we headed out to pick up a birthday gift, and then to dinner at Chili's. 

After Chili's to Chef Central to pick up....

drum roll please....

The New Keurig B70 Platinum Single Cup Coffee Brewer!

Yay!  As soon as we got home, I brought the B60 upstairs for my mom and dad, along with K-cups for them, and then unpacked and primed my the new bigger machine!

Perfect!  I am drinking a cup of decaf Green Mountain Hazelnut Cream right now!  Yummy!

AND - fyi - Hubby did get his payment last night while the kids were all playing Mario Party 7... I treated him to a little party magic of my own!!  LOL  The kids were never the wiser....

And, in honor of that... I have this graphic for Hubby, just in case he has forgotten -

Tee hee...

Anyhow, tomorrow is yet another birthday celebration.  My cousin Karol is coming to visit with her two boys.  My dear nephew (as we have decided to have the kids address us and Aunts since we never had sisters but are close), Karol's youngest, is 7 weeks younger than my Pumpkin, and is turning 10 next week. 

Karol has not seen Pumpkin for her birthday yet, either.  Usually, we all see each other at Kathy's, but remember, my whole family missed J's 4th birthday because we were all sick.

And, Karol lived with my family for a few years also, as a youngster and as an adult, and is very close to my dad, and wants to see him to celebrate his birthday, too.

So, tomorrow afternoon, the 5 kids will frolic and play while all us adults chit chat for a few hours.  We will cap it off with some scrumptious chocolate cake with candles for both the boys!  Being Sunday, Karol will want to head home early.  School night!

I hope you are all having a great weekend, and I will try to catch up on Sunday night!

be well,
Dawn 

(ps... this is what I wore for Hubby.... NOT!  There were too many kids for that! )

One of the bummers for having five kids is your friends are like, "should I bring mine?" lol....I am like, bring them, its more fun that way. Oh, loved the Great Sex image. If I had an experience where great sex lasted forever I would applaud. I dont. I only have my imagination and that will last forever or as long as my hormones stir it on,lol......~Raven

Sexy!  Oh I've got to figure something out for my hubby cause it's our 9th anniversary on Monday.  I think I'll buy a gift certificate to "The Sanctuary" up in north Scottsdale.  That is where all the "stars" go when they come to town.  Oh and congrats on finally getting your coffee maker, but just one question...why on earth are you drinking DECAF?  De ;)
