It really wasn't that bad. Plenty of squealing and screaming, but I quickly got a hold of myself and went on with the party.
Our big seven-year-old
The theme was "Almost Sleepover." The girls came dressed in their PJs with pillows and stuffed animals in-tow. We did a craft project, a game and then pizza and a movie. Hubby and I saved the cake and ice cream for the bitter-end, so we could send the kids home on a sugar high.
Heading into the weekend, we had quite a scare as deadly tornadoes shook our region. Schools dismissed early on Friday because of the storm warnings, so I picked up the kids and we spent most of the afternoon in the basement watching the weather forecast. We were very fortunate that the tornadoes missed Louisville, but a few miles north of us in Henryville, Ind., the storms devastated that community, as it did in Liberty, Ky., southeast of us. Many lives were lost and entire towns wiped off the map. Please pray for the victims and their families and neighbors who are left to recover and rebuild.
So, on Friday we had 70-degree weather and tornadoes. This morning, we woke up to three inches of snow and 32-degree temperatures. I never know what to expect around here.
Hope you had a great weekend. Happy Monday!
