|We picked up Claire afterschool, had Starbucks, went to |
a Hallowe'en carnival then came back to our place for some play.
As always, the two got along famously and didn't want the party to end!
Honestly, I woke up Saturday feeling pretty rough. UTI strikes again! TMI? Sorry! Fortunately there wasn't anything going on until later in the afternoon so I was able to stay home for a good portion of the day and rest. I took Lily to a friends place around 3 and went for a walk with my sister then picked up Lily and headed little Payton's birthday. After that party, Neil and my friends got together to throw an early little 40th birthday party for me. Believe it or not, soon after everyone arrived there was an earthquake which made us all a little unnerved! After the shock (and calming Brenna down ☺), we ate well (what else is new), laughed and had a very nice evening even though I don't want 40 to come! I felt lousy but grateful to be surrounded by love and to be home and in bed before midnight!

Feeling a bit better but certainly not great.
|The kids enjoyed putting together one of my presents. Thank you Lise, it's pretty sweet!|

My favourtie thing!!! After the first cut, Lily quoted Linus from Charlie Brown
"you didn't tell me you were going to kill it!"
