Party Preparations

They're in full swing.

This Saturday we will be hosting the babies first birthday party!! 91 people have confirmed- (wow)I must be NUTS!:) The weather for Houston on Saturday says 40% chance of rain- typical. Hopefully the luck of the Irish will turn the forecast around! NO RAIN PLEASE.

I am cooking 45lbs of corned beef and 60 heads of cabbage starting tomorrow. The best man in our wedding, Jerry Maguiness and his soon to be wifeCharlene are flying in from NYC on Thursday to help- Apparently Maguiness is very good at baking irish bread? I never would have guessed! :0

I CAN'T BELIEVE MY BABIES WILL BE ONE in less than a week? Where did the time go?

Well, stay tuned for pictures-

2nd Laura Mercier Play Date~

This past Sunday we had our 2nd play date with the Gurwitch crew!! For everyone who isn't aware, in our VERY small office, 9 babies were born in 2009!! (I did have almost 1/2 of them :)

The first play date was at our house in January- Kaitlin, mom to Ava, hosted February's event. It was a lot of fun to see how much they all change in just 4 weeks- here are some pics of mine and then the 'attempts' at a group photo- THANK GOD FOR THE BUBBLE MACHINE!!!

Ruby and her pigtails!

Saoirse- serious girl!

Jude- big brown eyes....

Gunner- the escape artist!!

Saoirse & Jude chillin in Ava's corral!!


Saoirse- really needs the thigh master workout!! :)

Christian (Ava's dad) and Jude... snotty nose!!

Here's what you get when you try and take a picture of 9 babies under the age of one:

Then add a $5 bubble machine from HEB and it gets a little better-
