Weekend Wrap Wednesday ~ Cole's Party Weekend

Wow I can't believe it finally came and gone, it's like your wedding you do all this stuff and then the day comes and goes so fast. But it was fun, hectic and I have the photos to prove it. So hold on it's going to be a fast ride. Let's count down the party day fun ;).

5am up to work a few hours before everyone gets up. Spend a 1/2 having to download new software to let calls come into me. Yup the IT guys ears must have been ring, I was swearing like a sailor. Finally got it up and running (mind you with out pay for that 1/2 hour). Do a few calls suppose to end at 7am, finish up around 7:15am.

7:30 get everyone up and tell them it's a cereal day, bunch of groans. Get the boys bathed and into clothes. Try to wake hubby up who is not getting up. Why does he need to get up we are going to a place that has the party for us. Hello the kids need to get ready and so do I. What you do that everyday. If looks could kill, he would be toast!

9am get out the door and run to the dollar store because of course I don't have enough plates and oh yeah need a few balloons. Run in thank the lord they open at 9am! Then off to the museum, this year I made it their a 15 min early yup I was there at 9:45am, last year I arrived late! (mental head slap). A parent from Cole's school arrived early with me, while I ran around setting up he sat there and oh yeah kept telling my kid to calm down. He actually said "Cole dude you need to settle down". I did the ok it's time to settle down, but deep down I wanted to scream! Dude!!! I just met you, you are here at a children's museum it's a party stop telling my kid to calm down and stop telling him to pick up! It's HIS party! And I don't even know you, so BACK OFF!!! Off my mental scream I went about finish setting up. The girls at the museum where great they set up the face painting section and then took the kids upstairs to play for an hour before they came back down.

10:30am my husband shows up! URGH ... he went to get the pizza's it was closed. Sent him and dad to pick up the pizza's. 11am the kids start coming down, we open presents. Talk about a free for all, all the kids helped open I have no clue if I got who was who with the gifts, so early apologize if I don't know all that you got him. 11:15am yes it only took 15min for presents, I told you it was a free for all. 11:15am at first I thought I would have to start with cupcakes and just when I'm about to open the cake I turn and see Rick and my dad with the pizza. Ok wow some adults really chow hard on pizza ... LOL. 6 pizza's gone in 15 min flat. 11:30am we do the cupcake cake (Dad took the pictures with his camera, so I'll have to post later), Rick also leaves to go to work at this time. 11:45am and everyone is running around on a sugar high ... it was GREAT! by 12pm we are all cleaned up and my car was loaded thank you to my wonderful friend Amy who actually took my keys and loaded up all the presents and everything in my car! Doesn't she rock!

1pm home everyone is taking a nap but me, back to work I go! Finish up some emails and I'm ready for a nap but of course not everyone gets up and we start the cycle all over again! Did I mention I have to work again at midnight ... LOL

We had a great turn out a few didn't show that were suppose to, and others either gave their lame excuses or none at all and others at least let you know they couldn't come and had a good reason. Now mind you I'm that crazy person that really tries to make it to all of the parties. I've even done 3 in one day! But I run myself ragged and try to make it to them all and then when it's my kids party they don't show and most times don't even call. So Rick told me just stop Alexis if they don't show to yours don't go to theirs it's only fair. So I guess I may just have to enforce that, because I think I'm running a little too thin these days. As they say you know you're true friends when you have a party. So that's what I have to say ... LOL

So here are a few of the pictures from the party, my camera wasn't working so most of the pictures are on my dad's camera that will arrive in months! LOL

Ok I'm ready for the party.
Check out my new shirt.
