Heaven, I was in Heaven....

The weekend was fabulous. Iddy got ballsy and took not only Hank and Bram. She took Tess and Chase as well!! WOOOOO-HOOOOO!!!

It was quite comical watching Aunt Abby driving away in my Tahoe, 4 Britax monster car seats inside and 4 kids 6 and under strapped in. Hilarious.

Chase yelling, "Buy Aunt Coco!" as they drove away. Hank and Bram not even bothered by the fact they were leaving us.

Tess looked a little confused and I got a little tiny lump in my throat leaving her this long for the first time.

But that was short lived.

Hubby and I went and had Thai food. Yes, we have a fabulous Thai restaurant in my cute little town. Best Pad Thai I have ever had.

Came home and let's just say. I slept until 2 pm the next day. Oh yeah. I did. And was a bit hungover to boot.

Then the Hubs and I headed to Austin to hang out with Burns and Lacey. No kids and all four of us together never happen, so it was quite a treat. Quite. A. Treat. I believe at one point in the night Lacey and I were holding hands, gazing in each others eyes, singing Billie Joel songs to one another.

And then there was a lot of dancing. So much so, my thighs are super sore.

Fun was had by all but by Sunday morning, all Lacey and I could talk about were our babies. Telling cute stories over, over and over again. So funny.

Kiddos arrived back yesterday, safe and sound. Very spoiled. And stuffed to the brim with Cheetos and Doritos. And M & M's. And popcorn. And Pepsi. And cookies.

You get the picture?????

Lots of cuddles and lots of carrying around the little lady on my hip. She did NOT want her mommy to put her down! After her hot bath and she was put down for the night, we all went outside were Bram and Hubby played football for hours! After his hot bath, he went down very easy and it was good to have him tucked in his bed, only a few feet from me.

Then it was mom and dad's bedtime. We both were out cold in less than 5 minutes. Staying up late just isn't as easy as it was back in the day.

So worth it, but we are getting OLD. This week is going to be a de-tox week if you will.

My liver and kidneys need a break. Badly.
