It is birthday season in our family. Do any of you have those times where it is about a birthday a week for awhile?
Last night we gathered to celebrate our daughter, Maria. She is beautiful, isn't she? She's just as kind as she is pretty...just so you know.
We had people working on our shower in our bathroom, which had to be replaced. I've also had the refrigerator repairman here and we replaced the dishwasher and microwave, among other patches and improvements. I guess it is not just birthday season but also repair season. Anyway... we just let the bathroom people (not their official titles) work and carried on with our party anyway.
Cordelia helped set the table.
Cordelia is always helpful. She enjoyed helping Maria blow out candles on the cupcakes.
Mike was out of town, actually already on his way home, after having been gone a few days. Since he didn't get home for the party, Eric took photos to send to him. More specifically, Eric took photos of each of us, separately, wearing Mike's jean jacket and Case Tractor Hat. That wasn't weird enough. He also dressed each dog up in Mike's attire as well. If you are crazy enough to want to see such photos, go here. I'm not sure how much of that operation was observed by the people working on our bathroom!
No matter how we celebrated, I'm just so very grateful for the chance I had to mother this beautiful person.
