Our little girl turned seven whole years old on the 31st. She got a huge teddy bear from CosCo. She is such a little bundle of joywhom we didn’t expect and who arrived by emergency c-section. Now she’s a young lady plotting what she might do with the money grandpa got her for her birthdayand blows out candles on her cake with exuberance. Her birthday was spread out over a couple days because we attended a wedding on New Year’s Eve. The weather has been quite frosty in the morningsbut somehow it’s clean and fresh for me. The frost crystals are huge! I’m hoping this road leads to spring! My Mom got a gift from us that reflected her travels abroad…many that my family and I have shared with her…see? Gabby wasn’t alone receiving gifts! The wedding was well done but I am glad Lovely had her skill and equipment to cover it. Me? I just liked the beautiful candles at our table…they really captured the moment and created a magical atmosphere. Day two of Gabby’s birthday celebration included a meal at her favorite restaurant with a few friends…looks like a wild bunch don’t you think? Love brought some goofy mustaches for them…they seemed to like the idea. The meal was a family favorite of various types of sushifollowed by some of Gabby’s rainbow cake. It was a good couple days!
