New Pictures!

I have new pictures!!!

Look at my sidebar........

The top picture is my family. Myself, my husband and our children, all together at the lake, which is about 5 blocks away from our house. The picture was taken by my awesome friend Gayle on the occasion of my husband's surprise 40th birthday party this past Sunday.

It was so great! I invited most everyone we knew and church family too, and about 40 people showed up. It was really fun because he was totally shocked!

I had been planning the party since about May and managed to keep it under wraps, even though my kids knew about it too! (They're great at keeping secrets!) My mom made, addressed, and sent out all of the invitations, and my friend Lisa was the RSVP gal and helped me with bringing extra stuff.

So, a good time was had by all and I'm soooo happy to have a family picture on my blog now, so you gals can see all of us together, and catch a glimpse of the man that I constantly brag about!

And the avatar? It's one picture that I actually like of me, so Gayle put it right up for me!

What a friend!

Onto other topics.....I'll be posting another recipe Friday. I want to have a regular day that is my recipe post day, I just haven't decided which day yet, but forgive me in advance if it's a different day each week.....I'm rather scatterbrained right now....I mean, er, I guess you could say I'm scatterbrained all the time!!! LOL!

There's a whole mess of ya, huh? It's cute when you get them all together, how much they look alike. Like kin.

Love the new pics!! Your kids are amazing to keep that party a secret - mine cannot keep anything a secret for more than 10 seconds!! As for being scatterbrained... doesn't that go with the mum job - I was just going "duh...is it wednesday??" I had to look at a post I put up this morning to see!! - not one of my brighter moments!LOL

You have a beautiful family.
I seem to be in a constant state of scatterbrained-ness. Is that a word? LOL.

Love the family pic Leanne-- beautiful!

And I am so glad the party went well and that he was surprised. I don't think I could pull off something like that! I just know I'd spill the beans ahead of time somehow!
