It began on February 7 and lasted until February 18.
Now that I am into the last day of this marathon, I feel a bit like it has been a biblical jubilee and as of today I am in need of a biblical fast. 🙂
I will begin that tomorrow. 🙂
My birthday celebration began at Jere and Kristen’s house on the evening of February 7 – when I was a young 69 and Josh was only 18.
We are delighted (at least I am) to share birthdays.
While we waited for Jere, Kristen, and Jana to put the final touches on supper, I showed Ian the finished/framed photo that I stitched of him.
I stitch grandchildren’s photos at a preschool age.
Jared gave us a piano concert before supper.
Cerwin found an old digital camera the other day when cleaning out a drawer. We took it along to see if one of the boys needed one. Jesse is the only one without a camera, so we made his day.
Showing Grandpa a picture. I think he felt like it was his birthday!
Kristen roasted this amazing cut of meat (I forget what it is called).
The delicious salad.
Our birthday cake.
Josh claims I blew them all out – and he just faked helping.
Allie watched as Josh opened the presents from his parents – things to do with his car.
A special cupcake from Allie.
Also a shirt from her.
Jana, Jesse, Ian, and Jared had to settle for being observers at this party.
Birthday flowers and a balloon from Jere and Kristen.
Little did I know what else was going to happen in the next eleven days.
