Happy Birthday, Christopher!

It is hard to wrap my head around our son being 35 tomorrow (the 27th)...but he is. Happy Birthday, Chris!

Last Saturday was the closest I think we have gotten to one of us being with him near his birthday since he was 18. How sad is that? So we threw a little last minute birthday celebration for him on Saturday afternoon and I bought a cake for both Chris and Piper to share. We got some pizza and I actually made a salad and it got topped off with chocolate cake. Not very full of nutrition but the little kids all loved it and it was fun and easy.

Had I known my flight would be delayed for over 3 hours I could have cooked something fabulous! But this did leave more time for a leisurely afternoon before heading to the airport.

One of my all time favorite things in life is seeing the kids and grandkids together, playing and enjoying each other's company. It is super nice having more than 2/3 of them in the same city.

35 candles and one to grow on!
They shared the first 11 and the one to grow on!
The cake is only so big and there are only 36 in the box!

They got them all!
Smoke alarm!

Zach, Chloe, Hazel and Julia waiting patiently...

Can you say...Chocolate everywhere?
Is something in your ear, Chloe?
She even had frosting on the back of her shirt...
Zach copped to that one!

Hazie got it in her nasal cannula and O2 tubing.

Aunt Missy was a good sport to let
us bring the party over there!

The kids played board games, Wii, rode bikes, and the adults even played Catch Phrase! Julia and Ayns did some needle work with their moms' help. The best part was just being together. We missed Grampa and Aunt Laura and Uncle Robert and Spencer and Ross.

Julia is quite pleased with this and well she should be!

Chris may this next year be as good as this one was for you!
We love you, Son! Enjoy your day!
