Family BBQ

Today we enjoyed Lepik Palooza where we celebrated our house warming, my birthday, Josh’s birthday and our anniversary and I have to say I had a grand time!!! This was the first party that Josh decided that he wanted to be in charge of so I temporarily denied my party OCD instincts and gave him the reigns.
He had the invitations designed 6 months in advance I kept thinking that I created another OCD party monster (I was so proud). But after giving my hubby 3 friendly reminders to get the invitations printed and mailed out at 8, 6 & 4 weeks then me freaking out because he hadn’t mailed out the invitations much less printed them (remember I DID say temporarily) then since I hit my 3 strikes rule I no longer mentioned the invitations…and then about a week before the party my darlin hubby sent me a text that he asked me to forward as the party invite to my family & friends list (I was thinking that we were definitely NOT going to have much of a turn out) but boy was I wrong!
We had about 50 close friends and family show up today to enjoy the day with us. My mom got Lyss a pool that ALL of the kids enjoyed with Beach Balls and Floaties. We hung out and enjoyed our time with our amazing extended family, so thank you ma famille for a wonderful day!!!
I love you all so very much 🙂
