the big 1::0



So the eldest is ten tomorrow. How did that happen? It seems like just last weekend we were bringing her home. A little piece of trivia...it has snowed on January 28th for the past ten years without fail. Abby is pretty aware of this bit of trivia as well. She has been glued to the weather channel for the past week. We have a chance for flurries in the morning, so I think we are safe for another year.

Can I tell you how loud 13 nine and ten year olds are? My ears are still ringing. We went swimming early in the evening, then had 6 of these sweet gals at our house overnight. Will wussed out when they started talking about boys...went to the bar! My sanity (and my hearing) were tested and we came out the other side with "the most awesome birthday ever"! Happy birthday sweet Abby.

Ok to my defense here. Look at the Picture, there were ten of them. The noise level was unbelievable. Plus, they were talking about boys. I did leave and go to the bar but was punished later and had to clean the kitchen. Ha I would have done much more to miss out on all that fun!
