We had a Birthday Party even though the guest of honor was in the hospital. Sadly, Mother was not able to come home. We sang to her over the speaker phone. She then told us we were to celebrate every one's birthday. So sweet! Several of the family went to stay with her after we finished eating. Our niece from Maine is a Medical Doctor.....it was so wonderful to have her here this week-end. She was a great help to us in understanding some of Mother's health issues.
Beautiful Birthday Cake!
A musician in the making!
This little cord organ has entertained many a Grandchild and Great Grand at Grandma Fahnestock's home!
Paityn being silly...a little big for that chair, don't you think?!!
What do we have here?
A photographer in the making?
Zoe seems to be enjoying the strap more than the camera!
I sang with the worship team at church even though my voice is certainly not at it's best with this cold. At least I didn't have to sneeze =) We had the kids here for lunch to clean up the left overs from the Friday night meal. I needed to make another BLT salad and cranberry salad since there wasn't much of those left.. Of course we had ice cream later....and we snacked on the 3 cakes - chocolate and apple cakes that I made and the chocolate cake from the birthday party! They all left by 8:30. The little ones were tired. I made my tea and went to bed. I was tired too from this busy week-end!
So now it's Monday. I asked Hubby this morning what coffee he used.....we use flavored. Right now we are using a Godiva white chocolate mint. It has a really strong mint flavor. I wasn't tasting it at all... just as I couldn't taste the mint in my tea last night and I'm not tasting my breakfast smoothie this morning =( I do hope this cold leaves soon!
My little ones will be here at 1. Aidan was disappointed that I didn't make a smoothie for him yesterday. I told him I would make him one today. I don't have a lot of frozen fruit right now so I best get myself to the grocery store before he comes. I also need to figure out what to make for dinner. I'm sure the energy will come when I get moving. I relaxed enough this morning.....I'm working on my get-up-and-go speech to myself! (I think it's working. maybe....)
Have a great day!
