Winning Weekend.

Every single day that H has school I have to wake E up to pick him up on time. Every day! But then a day like today, when H is going to a friend's house after school and I don't have to go to preschool pick up, E miraculously wakes up on her own.

As I write this she is singing her own sweet little songs from her crib. I'm guessing when I walk in her socks will be thrown onto the floor, along with her blanket, her stuffed baby and her book.

We're all caught up from being away for the weekend. The laundry is done, the house picked back up and we jumped right back into life at home. I've got a couple looming deadlines this week, along with an exciting giveaway (or two) and even though the weather has taken a cooler turn and a somber look, I'm kind of enjoying it right now.

We celebrated one of my mom's brother's 50th birthdays this past weekend and it was fun, oh it was fun.
It is good for my soul to have these weekends. My parents both were oldests of six so our extended family is large. And I take for granted these relationships, these people, this life.

We don't necessarily get to see them all all that often but when we do I am reminded of how much love there is.

H discovered his third cousins Braden and Donavan this weekend, children of two of my cousins and Saturday night as we left the party for one last swim at the hotel {with some of his favorite people), a night of sleep and a long drive home, he made sure to tell me that there is more in our family. That these new friends are his family.

And then there is the way my littles soak up all this love from these people, our family, we don't always get to see. I watch E get passed from one to the next and being showered with kisses and laughing and my 50 year old military uncle wrestle H and beam with pride at E as she sings him her version of Happy Birthday.

"She's ok". Someone yells at the party as I realize that E is completely across the room trying to help open the presents and I remember that in this place I am with the ones I love and the ones who love me and mine.

A good for the soul winning weekend it was.

Speaking of winners, comment #13 is the lucky one that random.org chose for the {sweeter than me designs} giveaway. Peggy, send me an email and I'll get you in touch with Kristin so you can get your prize.

Happy Monday, friends!

It's nice to have weekends like that! I also got to spend time with people this weekend that I do not get to see as often as I'd like and it does make for a winning weekend!

Thanks for the reminder, S. I sometimes fall into that category that thinks extended family gatherings are unimportant or bothersome, but when I do go I always enjoy myself. I should try harder...
