Oktoberfest in February

We hosted our Oktoberfest-themed housewarming party yesterday and it was a blast! (The reason for the theme was due to closing escrow in October and the big guy's German heritage.) We have put so much blood, sweat and tears (and money) into the renovations that it's been a relief to be 'done' for now and celebrate with friends. The big guy wore an adorable liederhosen costume and I wore a German fraulein costume too. Photos to follow...

It is anti-climatic and now it's Sunday without the mad rush to 'get things done'. Now what?! Go have fun? Unheard of! I believe we'll take a bike ride if I could just get off the couch... And where has my little German gone? Back to bed to rest his weary head. Too many Jameson shots at the end of the evening I suppose.

It was so nice to have people over and sharing laughter and good times. We are blessed to have such wonderful friends in our lives. I especially love seeing how all our offspring enrich our lives and watching them all play together! Incredible!
