Saturday night... Mother's Day Eve... we hosted a cocktail party for our local Down syndrome parent's group. Besides our Ds parent's group we also had lots of cops who participated in the police torch run for Special Olympics, the friends who played in our Special Olympics Kicking for a Cause kickball Tournament, and neighbors who always have a kinds smile or a high five for Sam. We had about 60+ people, entirely too much food, cocktails and fun. The bartender kept things running smoothly and everyone happy. I kept pushing the food because it would have taken a small miracle to get the left overs all back into my fridge. We also sold Mommy Needs A Cocktail tee shirts and The DDC (Down syndrome Development Council) gets 10% of the sales... so it was all for a good cause too. A shameless way to justify getting over served... but what is a girl to do...LOL. Sorry folks... I forgot to take pics.
And where were the kids you ask...
They had their own little party in the basement with the babysitter and 2 neighbor kids. They stuffed themselves with pizza, stolen treats from party, popcorn and watched movies.
The morning after... which happened to be Mother's Day... was lovely. The boys brought me cards in bed and lots of hugs and kisses. We had some friends over for Mother's Day Mimosas and Andrew made everyone french toast and bacon. All around it was a wonderful weekend.
