Party & Memorial.... How did it go???

I'm sure you have all been on the edge of your seats waiting....wondering how my weekend filled with emotions went..... Ok, so I'm reaching there....but just humor me and pretend like you are concerned.... :)

I am going to go backwards, as to end on a high/happy note......... So, about the memorial on Sunday-- it went great.... it was very informal, but very touching. Alot of people came to remember and memorialize Julie; and it was so nice to hear all the nice things everyone had to say about her!! We eneded it with her husband singing some songs that he had written her....and promised her that he would sing at her funeral. He was so worried that he wouldn't make it through without choking up, but we were all so proud of him that he did it and sounded great!!! Of course the rest of us could hardly get through his songs....but at least he did!!

Anyway, Saturday was Joseph's (and his half-brother Aiden's) birthday party. We did it at this dad's house since he has a pool and it turned out really nice!! We had a thunderstorm threatening for most of the afternoon....but "threaten" is all that it did, so we survived with a little bit of rain and alot of fun!!
"D" (my ex's fiance') did a great job decorating and baking and everything else party related.... I was so relieved to walk in and see evrything all set up and looking so perfect for the kids!!

Everything Star Wars.... and yes, that is a Darth Vader pinata....
My kids and "A" (the other birthday boy).... And yes, she even themed the pool rafts....gosh, she's good!!
Joseph and his buddy with 3-D glasses on.... the plates and napkins were 3-D....
Happy Birthday to you guys....
Everyone eating their cupcakes..... and yes, Joseph does have chocalte frosting everywhere (that's his standard M.O.)
He had a blast opening all his gifts..... gosh, I still don't know where I will put everything....
:)
All in all, we had a good weekend...... and now, I am preparing myself to send my big boys to Indiana for a week....
