What a weekend!

It's Wednesday night and this is the first chance I have had to do a weekend post.

We will call it the GRAD-BIRTH-RECITAL weekend, with at least 20 out of town guests mixed in there.  What a busy, but oh so fun weekend!

Thursday Night: Guest arrival, the house was clean, dinner was made and there were fresh sheets on all of the beds.

Friday Night: Mike's only sister, Maria, Graduates from MSU Vet School, she is now a DR!  Late night at Claddaugh's for dinner and drinks after graduation.

She looks a little excited in this pic, don't you think?

Saturday Morning 10:00am: My only niece, Olivia, had her 3rd birthday at our house with about 40 guests, people were sitting on the floor because my house is a little too small for that, but nobody seemed to mind.

Olivia and the "Great" Uncle Tom!

Check out that cake, AMAZING!!
Olivia had a butterfly themed party, adorable!

Saturday Afternoon: Naptime for ALL, especially even for the adults.

Saturday Night: Maria's Graduation party, about an hour south of our house.  They reserved a bar for the party, which was nice.

Maria and Beth, crazy cousins!

It was a late night of singing dancing and just having fun!

Sunday Morning: I made it to church with Kate, Nick and Olivia, the rest of the crew was sleeping in to re-coop from the night before.

Sunday Afternoon:  My favorite part of the weekend, ok I am a little bias, Kate's 2nd dance recital!  It was on a big stage at the local highschool, the theme of the recital was "Going to the Movies"  So all of the dances and songs were from movies.

Her tap song was The Candyman Can from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Here is her entire class.

Her second dance was for ballet and they danced to a Beauty and the Beast song.

Look at her beautiful form.

Kate and her best friend from school and dance, Hannah.

Kate, Mike and I, so proud of Kate!

Sunday Night: Most of the family had to head back home, but those who could stay joined us for burgers and hotdogs on the grill.  Then off to bed.

Monday Morning: School and the rest of our house guests left for the airport.  Then I took another nap, started laundry and cleaning up from the weekend.

Busy, but fun, how was your weekend?
