Happy (early) 5th!

Ms. R was completely excited about the idea of having a birthday party with all her Canadian cousins during this visit to Canada - and since I rarely deny my children reasonable requests, I arranged for us to do so yesterday. I invited Tina and her girls, Michael & Jenie and their kids, Dawn & Gary and their kids, Rachael's daughter, Maria Wert and her kids, Ben & Becka and their troupe, my Dad and Sandy, my Aunt Norma and my Mom and Rod. Ben/Becka and their kids, Rod and Sandy were the only ones not able to make it. 18 kids, 10 adults, two dogs, two cats ... Dawn's place was a bit of a mad house for a bit. A lot of fun though. I'm glad I had a reason to get all those people together, I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

It was a great time! My girls were so excited to go and really didn't want to leave. Thanks for the cake and the fun! Happy (early) Birthday Rhiannon!

Krista, I am SO SORRY we didn't make it. I've been totally crazy...gone every day this week for at least a part of it wworking and the rest of the time dealing with the kids on my own while Ben is working. My new job isn't as great as I thought it was going to be......
I do have a birthday present for Rhiannon, tell her we'll have our own little party up here when you come and visit! We'll even make a cake for her and Connor.

Sorry again!

Thanks for inviting us, considering it was at our house & all, and we did all the decorating...

Sorry Gary - you're right, I forgot to mention that Dawn and Gary were kind enough to allow me to hold the festivities at her house, since it's kind of central to everyone ... and the most kid friendly place around. Thanks Dawn and Gary!
