Well the party at my brothers was very nice! We had a great turnout! My cousins ended up coming & we Face-timed 1 cousin who couldn't be there. My NC aunt/uncle loved seeing everybody. The homemade ice cream turned out excellent. (not bragging...I just love HM ice cream!!) We had brownies, apple pie, rice krispie treats, scotcharoos, & sweet chex mix. Good thing I'm walking in the morning!! I think I am crashing from all the sugar, so I am going to say goodnight! I think I will try taking a Benadryl b/f I head to bed & maybe that will help my allergies in the morning!!! AND make me sleep good!!!

Good night everyone! Enjoy your night!
