I work full time in an accounting/analyst position and pretty much work for the weekends.
I live for the weekends, is more like it.
Every Monday, I am at the edge of my seat waiting for Friday to arrive.
But this week is a little bit more special.
This little guy, had his first birthday yesterday, and we are having a HUGE party this weekend:
Baby Michael with his Mommy Trinity, Auntie Welo in the background
Baby Michael is my nephew, son of Trinity (my cousin) and Mike (her fiance). Trinity and Welo are sisters, our dads are brothers. And that's just a small branch of our Redwood sized Family Tree.
Baby Michael also shares the same birthday as this special guy:
Me and my daddy
The party is going to be held on Maui, and I'll be flying from Honolulu to Maui on Friday!!!! I can't wait to see everyone and eat some really realy really good Hawaiian food.
I'm excited for the party, but I'm also excited because I get to see these kids:
I'm related to the human kids, not the goats
The boy on the left (Tayden) and the girl on the right (Teani) are Welo's kids. The two in the middle? My baby brother (Josiah) and sister (Rachel). Yes, we are 20 and 23 years apart.
Our family is pretty close and these kids just warm my heart. I can't wait to cuddle and play with them all weekend long. We do have a GINORMOUS (300+ guests) party to set up and host, but there's nothing I enjoy more than spending quality time with quality folks.
I'm an only child, but I grew up with Trinity and Welo, even living in the same house for about a year. We were raised together, and I am so blessed to have such great people surround and support and love me.
This week has gone by pretty fast and I'm super stoked to see everyone! Hopefully I'll be able to get some running in there but if not, I'll just pick it back up next week.
And of course, I'll be sure to post lots of pics!
As of now? Only two more sleeps to go =)
