Yesterday was George's Birthday. It has always been a tradition that we go over to his Mom's for dinner and exchange our gifts there. This year was our first without her. I took time this week to think about our times together, and boy do I miss her. But as we know, life does go on. Time to make new traditions. Unfortunately, both kids had to work. So I told George I would be taking him out to lunch. We had a peaceful day. Nicole was home in the morning, so she got to spend some time with George. We did an early dinner at TGIF's. It was very nice. I had gotten him Netflix for his Birthday and had to buy a new dvd player since we had an old one and it wasn't compatible with the online streaming they do. In the evening, we sat and watched a movie. I think he enjoyed his day :).
Since no one could make it for his Birthday, we did it today. He was so funny. Even George was extending his Birthday :). I have an influence, don't I ? We were able to sleep in this morning which was wonderful. Our time opening gifts was more of a guessing game. What was in the package? So we tried to see if we could guess.
I won't bore you with a lot of pictures... I took a lot, but these were worth sharing. Nicole always passes them out.
Nicole was totally surprised with this...
And for some reason, this was the reaction I got when I opened one of my gifts from George..
I just got the BIGGEST chuckle over this.... And it WILL be used because I'm always cold.
I think George's reaction says it all. (love making my family laugh lol)
Here is another gift that will get MUCH use in the near future.... I gave my husband a list, and boy was he good to me :). A whole assortment of Pro Chem Dyes ! Along with a beautiful watch, earrings and necklace, and a few other things. I must have been a good girl :).
So Craig and Lake made it over, and they came wearing comfortable clothes. I don't blame them! They were going to her mom's after here. I like a relaxing atmosphere. Oh, and Craig had no idea what was in the big box behind him. It was a lawn mower. He was talking about how he needed one for his new home, but never expected it!
We had a wonderful meal together.
And finally George's Birthday cake!
My adorable kids :)
