Chicago Sister was Here and I turned 36

My sister and her family came to visit for a three day weekend!  It was so fun to see all the cousins playing together.  They played non-stop. There was dress up:

And games:

There was even a jam session in the basement (yes there is video of this, will try to post it sometime):

Then we got all bundled up:

And went to a little water park:

It was my *gasp* 36th birthday! So Chicago-Brother-in-Law bought all the grown ups a GIANT feast of sushi take out! Funny thing that happened with CBIL.  He thought that since it was my birthday, it would be a real "party" atmosphere. We put the kids to bed and we were all getting out plates and wine and stuff and he came down ALL DRESSED UP!  The rest of us were in jeans and sweats, but he dressed up for my birthday.  DARLING!  LOVE HIM!

Of course, we also cuddled a lot with this little chubby chub (the baby, not PD):

What a fun weekend.  One morning the guys even took over with the kids and let the two homeschool moms relax and drink coffee and talk. I really needed it too. Whew.. with homeschooling and all this snow and absolutely no back up help with the kids when PD is at work all the time, I really needed some fun.  And some grown up time. Next up...we will have to go see them in Chicago.

CBIL is so sweet! Looks like you all had a really great time. I tried sushi for the first time yesterday.

Seems like CBIL didn't feel the need to shave for your big day however! After seeing these pictures I realize how much I need to wear more makeup. We had a good time! Thanks for hosting us and happy birthday again.
