My husband and the kids pulled off a surprise party for my 50th Birthday on Saturday. There must have been 50-75 people here, hanging out, talking, eating, kids in the pool, laughing and just having an all around good time. Aunts and uncles I haven’t seen for a year were here and a lot of Joes family (my adopted family). I haven’t laughed that much in years. I love all of these people so much. I’m so lucky to have been assimilated into such a wonderful family. The kids did so much to help Joe set everything up and tear it all down. I didn’t have to do anything but enjoy myself. And enjoy I did. I caught up with everyone and just talked and played with the kids and got so many hugs. (the bestest part) I was so worn out that I slept till 3:30 this afternoon.
My little Oscar got so much love from everyone. The adults think the’s so well-behaved and the kids just Love him cause he’ll sit there for hours to be petted. He has an ability to make even the most hyper child sit quietly and pet him gently. They just stare into his big brown eyes and are spellbound.
I’m off to snooze in the chair with a good book and a cuddly dog. What could be better?
