Wow. Time has really slipped by us! I can hardly believe that it's been 1 year since I stood, nervously, before a judge who grilled us to no end. I just read the blog that I wrote that day and I can feel the tension creeping up into my shoulders and neck, just from reading it! I can't believe that it's been a year. It's still so fresh in my mind and I never want to forget it. I never want the details to fade.
After that, we took Griffin to pick up Big G's birthday cake for tomorrow. He is such a great shopping buddy and I love having him with me. He helped me pick out plates and napkins to match the cake and managed to make a few girlfriends along the way! haha. When he flashes the smile, the ladies melt.
After our shopping was done, I took my sister-in-law and Big G to a painting studio for their birthdays. We were directed on how to paint a canvas with an owl on it and it was so much fun! 2 1/2 hours later and we had some pretty awesome paintings to hang on our walls! Big G was kind of discouraged since it was a bit difficult, but she perked up when I told her that we were going to trade paintings...she will hang mine on her bedroom wall, and I will hang hers on mine! That made her happy! I love her artwork and everything about her.
It has been the perfect day and I have enjoyed every minute of it! We ended our night with some playtime at McDonald's with some awesome friends... and then we took a trip to Wal-mart after the kiddos were tucked into bed for the night. We are zonked! Tomorrow is Big G's birthday and we will be having some awesome family time. Looking forward to it!
Love and Hugs!
