3,245 times I cursed my camera and complained about needing a new lens and camera
3 days without naps for the littlest Witt
0 episodes of vomiting
1 accidental potty incident - Don't judge me I had a lot of iced tea.
7 kid shows/movies watched
2 beautiful newlyweds
2 wonderful people celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary
3 new "friends" for Kate

4 slices of pizza
1 upset stomach

Clearly not as fun as yours - LOL!! Ours was not so exciting. Just spent some time at the pool and outside yesterday. So sad it's monday already.

What fun! I want to play.

50 people celebrating 1 new marriage and 1 not-so-new marriage
15 lbs of hamburger; 3-4 packages of hot dogs (with corresponding buns)
4 lbs of cheesy potatoes
1 boatload of sidedishes (thank you everyone)
2 celebratory cakes (thanks Debbie)
2 freezers of homemade ice cream (thanks Ron & Verlin)
6,450,222 --- 223 flies swatted since everyone left
2 sons at home with mom at the same for the 1st time in 3 years -- PRICELESS!

Alternate ending:
1 quiet empty nest -- PRICELESS (This is the cats favorite ending).

As an added bonus to our weekend, we were able to help Grandma Sally celebrate her 102nd b-day Sunday evening! What an amazing woman!
