Ok, faithful readers, I lied. I am not posting photos today of our busy weekend. Instead I'm sticking to the Thursday-catholic-blogging-mom tradition of posting my small successes for the week. Check out the fun at Faith and Family Live.
1) We hosted a rip-roaring, old fashioned fiesta for our new ten year old this weekend. We decorated with bright festive colors, donned our best fiesta attire, created a delectable menu filled with mexican fare, played music with a latin flare, and whacked away at a traditional pinata.
2) I tried my hand at making homemade breakfast sausage and donuts on Sunday morning. They were both delicious and well received, for a first attempt.
3) We headed out on our annual trip to Williamsburg/Busch Gardens on Monday. As much as I didn't want to, I submitted to our oldest daughter's desire to drive the nearly 7 hours(round-trip). She's really working hard to put a dent in the 60 hours behind the wheel requirement, and is now over 35 hours. We took two vehicles so that she could drive one with Wingnut supervising, and I drove the twelve passenger van with the rest of the crew. I was worried I'd be stressed out about letting her drive, and that the stress would ruin the trip for me, but it all worked out well and I had a wonderfully entertaining time with Stat Boy riding shot gun next to me. That kid is a real card and had me laughing nearly the entire drive.
