My brother Joey came to visit us for the weekend. His wife Crystal came about a month ago. They are moving to San Diego. Crystal already moved and is anxiously waiting for Joey to get there. He will be leaving this coming week so he came to see us before he left. The kids were SO EXCITED! Even though Leah isn't acting like it in the above picture she kept saying, "I love Crystal and Joey" all weekend. The other kids were very excited too. They were all over Joey the whole time. Not a restful weekend but so nice to see him before he goes. We went to the park and went swimming. It may be Christmas before we see them again and we will miss them! :(

Katelyn had her 5th birthday party this past weekend. She had so much fun with all her friends and the rain held off until the party was over. The party was from 2-4 and it started pouring at almost exactly 4 o'clock. She had a Cowgirl Kate theme. She loves the Cowgirl Kate series by Erica Silverman. They are easy enough for her to read herself and a very cute series of books.
We had 2 pinatas. One we made ourselves and the other Kate picked out. One was meant to be a pull string pinata but it didn't work so they got more turns to hit it. It never broke so we had to have our neighbor Terry bust it! Lily plays softball and she was able to break the one we made. Thank goodness my mom was able to come and help. That made things so much better. Thanks to everyone who came. We have the best friends!
