Plans to look forward to

Saturdays have a way of filling up fast at our house. Each week we talk about what we want to do on the quickly approaching Saturday, and by the time the day finally gets here we have to pick between many things. I like it this way.

Today Emily has soccer pictures, and then her soccer game. After her game, we're heading out to the Sparkleberry Fair. I'm not sure what to expect, as I've never gone, but Emily and Scott went last year and Emily is totally looking forward to going again. Last year I was as big as a house and on bed rest. They went without me, and while I was certainly grateful for Em to have some alone time with her daddy, I remember being bummed that I was by myself and couldn't go.

That said, I'm sure we'll have a great time today.

Oh, and next Saturday is another big event: The twins' FIRST BIRTHDAY! Can't wait! My mom flies in on Friday morning, and we haven't mentioned it to Emily. Our plan is for me to drop Em off at preschool and then pick up my mom from the Columbia airport. Then when I go to pick up Emily my mom will be in the back seat to surprise her! Sounds like fun, right? Just ask my mom how many times she's almost blown it while talking to Emily on the phone! :)

UPDATE:
No sooner than five minutes after I clicked "publish post," it started to rain. No joke. I guess that's why its good to have many potential plans for a Saturday. Oh well. And I also forgot to mention that this Saturday morning was especially fabulous because Scott got up with the twins at their 6 am wake up time, and when I woke up an hour and a half later, I came downstairs to coffee, pancakes, bacon and eggs. Now that is what I call a good husband with a fabulous plan!

Wow! That is a great way to wake up. I know that your mom is super excited. How fun.

Your mom is so excited about surprising Em -- I wish I could be there to see it! I think you should have a videographer on board to capture the moment. Hard to believe those babies are almost a year old!
