A Wonderful Birthday!

Tomorrow, November 5th, is my actual birthday but John, the kids and I celebrated last night. I have to say, a the risk of sounding incredibly schmaltzy, nothing makes me happier than having my family around me. I know how fortunate I am to have children who want to come home and a wonderful husband who plans a party well!

We had great fun and lots of laughs. In fact, just trying to get a nice photo of the girls was a wee bit difficult.....

Clearly it was necessary to get Chrissy into the picture to get the girls to behave!

It was great having Pat and Chrissy here for the weekend.

Then there is Tucker. I'm not sure if this was taken before or after he ate the Boursin cheese we had for our hors d'oeuvres.

Trying to get back into our good graces by licking the coffee table did not work.

Not sure what was going on here with the glasses (not Chrissy's), but Chrissy looks cute with or without them.

The camera somehow got onto the wrong setting for this next photo but had to include it for the "ghostly" Dave!

The evening ended with fireworks and sparklers outside and then the BC/Florida State game. After turning the clocks back it was off to bed.

This morning dawned crisp, blue and bright. It is always sad to arrive home after dropping Pat and Chrissy off at the train station but it is a glorious day. I look forward to cleaning up the garden outside, planting my peonies and hearing how Patrick's good freind, Phil, does in the New York City Marathon.
