Birthday Dinner & a Breakthrough

Oh my goodness, Christmas is five days away!

And that means my oldest daughter, OMG Becky, turns 19 in just three days. I can’t.

We had just one outing this past weekend due to a winter storm. It started with freezing drizzle Friday late night, followed by snow all Saturday afternoon. And let us not forget single digit temperatures with a windchill below zero. We hunkered down and stayed home from Friday evening until Sunday evening.

Sunday night we went to my parents’ house for Becky’s family birthday dinner! The evening involved arts and crafts meant for the littles, but enjoyed by all.

Coloring pictures to put in Santa’s mailbox. These pictures may have involved pleas for gifts and a nice list. Sassy didn’t make it on that list.  😉

We had a breakthrough. Do you notice something in the picture above? My youngest niece is smiling! Her eyes were still on me nonstop all night, but at least she’s smiling. (I took my walking boot off while she was there. We’re all hoping she’s even more comfortable with me come Christmas Eve!)

We also enjoyed cake!

Sidenote, OMG Becky was not entirely happy with me. I had asked her what kind of cake she wanted. She picked Red Velvet. Great. I went to the store Friday, bought the cake mix and frosting. Baked the cake Saturday. Took it to the party Sunday. That’s when I realized I hadn’t bought her any ice cream. We had a birthday party without ice cream. Oh the injustice! For whatever reason (I guess because we didn’t discuss it?) buying ice cream never even dawned on me. #momfail
