Sorry for the late post. We have spent a good portion of the day emptying out the school room in anticipation of moving A. and P. (and eventually H.) into it as a bedroom. But I digress. Last nigh we celebrated B.'s, G.'s, L.'s, and D.'s birthdays.
The trouble with birthday pie is that it is impossible to put candles on it, so we hold them for the person to blow out. Here's G.:
B. did not want to blow out candles and he didn't really want us to sing to him, either. But we did.
Then it was time for presents. G. and L. enjoyed opening their gifts.
And playing with them.
Sometimes it was a bit chaotic.
And sometimes there were quiet moments.
It's always interesting to see what someone else is getting.
And sometimes your mother, after checking the time, tells you to keep on moving and look at the gifts later.
Today is also J.'s birthday, so we'll have more pie. And tomorrow is our anniversary, so we'll continue to clean out the school room... and have more pie. Do we know how to celebrate, or what?
