Aaaah! I can't wait!
With 12 days left, the countdown to our family's arrival to celebrate my son's 5th birthday has officially begun. I'm so totally stoked! Whenever my husband's mom and siblings are in town a good time is guaranteed to be had by all. There will be games played from cards to video games, little people running around everywhere, trips to the mall and other stores and local attractions, a home beauty salon-full service hair and nails, and of course- plenty of FOOD. They are the craziest bunch of people I've met; and I'm sure that after almost 7 years of marriage, and over a decade of knowing them, it has rubbed off on me. But that's okay I don't mind. Don't get me wrong. It's not always roses and sweet stuff. Sometimes we flat out get on each others last nerve. But we know that's family. We have our moments and move on. I wouldn't trade them for anything.
Everyone will be spilt between two houses. Ours and my sister in law who lives about an hr an 45 mins away. But if we happen to be up late.... Who am I kidding? We're gonna be up late. And I don't mean 11 pm or 12 am late, cuz thats not late thats an early evening for this family. I mean 2 or 3 am sometimes even 6 or 7 am at which point it doesn't even make sense to go to sleep and some of us don't lol. But i digress. Like i was saying if no one wants to leave on one of those nights that we are up late, thanks to us being a combo of military families and people who love to travel, there are plenty of sleeping bags. I'm hoping we can fit in some time for a family photo shoot. I just wish that my husband's older brother and family were able to make it. But alas, nothing in life is perfect.
We are in full swing here around the house trying to prepare and complete at least 90% of our Spring castle cleaning by the time they arrive.
And I still have to figure out what we are doing for our son's 5th bday party. Soooo off to Pinterest I go....
