A Birthday Weekend Recap

My birthday was just technically one day, but we didn't have my cake until Sunday, so I can call it a birthday weekend.  So here is my birthday weekend in pictures.

It began Friday night with a Murder Mystery Dinner- it was a High School Reunion set in the 80's. Eric and I dressed the part. He was Danny Drummer and I was Sally Sax- high school band geeks and sweethearts who were now married with our own music studio.

It ended up being a ton of fun and Eric and I ended up being pretty big suspects as the man who died owed us a lot of money....we still haven't received our money by the way.

Saturday started with donuts for breakfast, then I was totally spoiled with lots of presents.

New lamps to replace the broken one in the living room, new dishes (to replace the broken plates and not full set anymore), gift cards, a puzzle by my favorite puzzle creator, chocolates, and a GoPro!  I am looking forward to having some fun with the GoPro.

Then it was off to Alex's soccer game, where she scored three goals in the first half and then played defense and goalie the second half, it was a good game; they won 6-0.

Then we went out to lunch where I had a yummy gyro.  Didn't take any pictures though.

Saturday evening we had our church Halloween Party and Trunk-R-Treat.  It was a lot of fun and here is one sneak peak of my kids' costumes.  I will show more pictures later this week as of course I took a lot.

Then Sunday was my church's Primary Program. The kids ages 3-11 have been working all year, learning songs and then they each say a little part and sing lots of songs and put on the main service presentation.  It is always a wonderful Sunday and so fun to watch the kids.  This was the first year that all three of my kids were in the program!  Lucas and Alex did great the entire time. Ryder did good saying his part, though very loudly spoke in the microphone at first, and then near the end he and his little friend Aubrey were having a hard time sitting still but were entertaining to watch.

So a busy and fun weekend.. and I am still in the lower half of my 30's (barely), so life is good.

Come back tomorrow for 10 Things to Smile About This Month!
