Birthday Party

Sorry it has taken me so long to update, but having a party and taking care of 4 kids takes a lot out of you. LOL So when I got up Saturday morning rain was on it's way and boy did it rain, we even got some hail. I had hung a rosary outside because that's what my mom has always done for parties and it has worked in the past. Well it was forcasted to rain until noon but it had stopped here by 10am so I had plenty of time to get the last minute stuff dome right? Not so much. I am always running behind and this was much worse than in the past. But it all came together and was a GREAT party thanks to all the help I got from my mom. Thanks mom!!! I had a major melt down when my mom had gotten here because the top of the cake fell off in the car on the way over. But it's just a cake and it was a beautiful cake anyways. Then I noticed only when looking at pictures the next day that they spelled Cooper's name wrong, they put Copper. Oh well. Almost everyone we invited came, even all of my triplet mom friends!!! We had 15 babies between 9 months and 15 months here (16 plus Chloe). Lot's of fun. It meant so much to me that they all came. We had rented a bounce house for Nick since he has been a great big brother over the last year and he loved it. Everyone was VERY generous, the babies made out good. They got 2 new car seats (thanks G.G., Grandma & Cho Cha), a bunch of cool toy's, lot's of fall/winter clothes, a ton of cash and gift cards. So much so that we have enough to get the third car seat, the bike seats to convert the stroller, a fall/winter wardrobe and had enough to get the infamous CHOO CHOO WAGON (look for a post on that later) Thank you to everyone who shared in our special day and has been there for us through out this last hectic year. We love you all.

I'm so glad we were able to come and share the babies birthday. We had fun and it was great for the babies to meet. Now we have to all get together for a playdate! Thanks again, you did a great job on the party!

AWWWWWWWWWWW! It was an HONOR for me to be there. I wish I could have stayed longer to help you clean up. Your Mom did a terrific job too. The food was delicious and the cake was yummy! I wish I had a piece right now. You should never doubt yourself, you ALWAYS do a fantastic job. With the kids, with the house, everything. You are the BEST! Isn't a great feeling to be loved? It is one of the gifts that is truly PRICELESS! It does not cost a cent to show love and appreciation and I love and appreciate YOU! I will try to download my pictures this weekend and get them to you. We will have to get together again. Are you planning on going to the camp for the family reunion? I know it is very hectic with the babies, so I totally understand if you dont go. But it would be nice. Talk to you soon.
