what we've been up to

DD is sick today

Saturday was DS 2's family birthday party
Celtic Classic

mom's party

I made the cookies and breads... Wood River Village made the little yummo cheesecakes. My SIL got the cake at a local to there bakery.

I made the empanadas: spinach, corn, roquefort walnut and celery, and egg and cheese. Wood River Village made the little sandwiches (quite tasty) and the fruit and veggie trays. We all had such a great time.

Great Wolf Lodge was a blast. DH and DD had the most fun. The little boys and I got a bit waterlogged... plus I was exhausted from school. We 3 were in bed Friday night before 9. The adventurers stayed in the park until it closed. We were back in the park Sat AM when it opened. It's a fun place, but I'm not a huge fan of being wet all day. A few hours is enough for me. Then I like to be warm and dry! The weather outside was cool and rainy, much like yesterday and today!

I've actually finished a knitted project

I haven't knit a stitch since Labor Day though.... school is REALLY usurping ALL my time. I'm lucky to get 4 hours of sleep a night.

Oooh, love the socks! What a wonderful party! Great Wolf - I am with you on water parks. The kids have a ball. Last time I didn't even put my suit on. Sat and knitted. One of the times I went I came home w/strep. That's what my son has, ugh. School starts and germs fly!

the spread looks pretty yummy! I'm not a fan of water parks myself.
