A Sweet Treat...

Tonight, the kids and I spent the evening with my in-laws having a little going away party...pizza style. It was a fun get together. I watched as the kids all talked to their Papa and Auntie while my mother-in-law and I giggled down at the end of the table. My other sis-in-law showed up a few minutes later and we had a good time seeing them for the last time before we move. My sister-in-law made little bags for each of the kids...a survival kit if you will. I was a bit nervous when the kids first pulled out the bags of gummy bears and gummy worms along with an array of different puzzle books and such to keep them busy. The highlight to it all was finding two small squirt guns in each bag...including my own....I can see the looney family running all over the grassy area shooting each other with squirt guns. no worries...have camera, will travel. I laughed as I opened my bag:

Some traditional travel items such as tums, motion sickness medicine, my own squirt guns, and wet wipes. Then again she covered me for the large amount of gummy creatures she pushed down in my kids' bags....a new bottle of aspirin and earplugs. LOVE IT!!!!! of course I love the new movie too. I watched August Rush once and loved it. I've simply never had the chance to buy it...yet. And now I don't have to. I'm so grateful for the thoughts of all my family gathering to give us a good sendoff. Nothing better than having your family around you.

As I came home I received a call to arms. The girls were heading out on the town. It was so much fun to have my friends all around as we chowed down on dessert. Unfortunately, after a great dinner and a belly full of desserts I haven't been so full for so long. I am most definitely going to sleep well tonight. It was a fun time with my girls tonight!!!!

I'm so glad the family and friends in your life are giving you such a great send off. It says a lot about how important you are in their lives. Sounds like you have wonderful people surrounding you and you can carry that love with you no matter the distance.

That is really sweet. Just make sure you hide the water guns. They may be taken and you dubbed as terrorist travelers. I just have your back. lol
