Lots going on...and recap of Rebecca's birthday party

The past few days have been pretty hectic around here. The recap:

On Wednesday we had Thanksgiving dinner/ birthday celebration with my in-laws and for my sister in law's birthday. Thursday we had Thanksgiving dinner/ birthday celebration with my side of the family and we celebrated my niece's 6th birthday. Friday my sister came to visit and her friend came over for the day. Saturday was spent taking my sister to a 6am basketball practice, cleaning house, doing laundry, baking and decorating Rebecca's b-day cake. Sunday, I got Rebecca up early so we could go to church early. Then I had to get the food together for the party, etc. Then there was Rebecca's party....

She had a blast! She woke up and saw her cake first thing and said "Mommy my cake is beautiful!" After we went to church, she wanted to hurry back home to make sure her cake was still ok. LOL. At her party, she wanted to wear her party dress (pink dress with cupcakes all over it!).

She loved her balloons!

Enjoying her cake!

She got lots of great gifts! I love her expression when she was opening her birthday barbie!

Playing her new Nickelodeon Fit game with daddy!

The aftermath! Leftover cake and a Cinderella barbie to play with.

Overall we had a really great party for her birthday! She had a blast and that is what matters most! 
During the party, I started feeling achy and run down. I think it was just the stress of the last week and all the things that were going on. I was sick Monday and most of Tuesday. I hate feeling sick! Thankfully I am feeling a little better. I did not get one of my goals done. I wanted to be done with our Christmas shopping by Dec.1, but I am about 97% done so I don't feel too bad about that.

Overall  the last full week of November was busy and was enjoyable! I hope December can be the same.
