A Weekend of Celebrating


May starts off with a bang with Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you) on Sat and Cinco de Mayo on Sunday.  After a literal month of passing the stomach bug back and forth and back again around the circus house, a weekend with no agenda other than having fun was JUST what this Momma needed.  photo (20)

Saturday my beloved sister in law and  nephews were in town which was PERFECT for Star Wars day.  We cranked up the Star Wars soundtrack on the speakers inside and out, donned our Star Wars tees, grabbed our light sabers and battled it out all day.  My heart was so full.  I loved, LOVED watching the kids interact with each other.  It was such a low key, relaxed day. photo (19)

Sunday as full with church, a youth staff luncheon, and a flag football game.  When we got home we cranked up the music on the “Cinco de Mayo Pandora station” and made enchiladas for dinner… IMG_0599

followed by this little dessert I found on Pinterest.  We ended the weekend snuggled on the couch watching “Herbie Goes Bananas.” IMG_0580

Today the festivities were over and it was time to tame that LONG ignored laundry pile in my basement.   I am thankful though for a weekend of just plain ol’ silly fun (with a side of chips and salsa).



  1. You are the best at festive celebrations!! Love Love Love the pictures

  2. Saturday was such a fun day. Sadly, I didn't get to hang out at the house as much as you and the kids. But they had SO much fun and were exhausted that night. Sounds like good cousin fun to me!
