My day started out by stopping by Scott’s parent’s house “just to say hi”. We walked into their house and heard an additional “Hi!” from Hannah, standing in the background. What a great surprise! Her Facebook status line from just a few hours earlier was “Happy Birthday, Mother. Wish I was there.” Clearly now just a ploy to throw me off. Scott had arranged for one of her friends to bring her into town, meeting his dad, Larry, part-way there.
The three of us did some running around in the afternoon and then headed out to my sister, Anna-Margaret’s, house for dinner.
What a great evening!
Anna-Margaret was taking the picture (unfortunately, not shown). Dad brought his friend, Joyce. Such a great lady. A great combination of people to enjoy. Fabulous husband. Fantasic daughter. Best-ever nieces.
Dad made me banana pudding…one of my favorites!
My mother-in-law, Joanne, made me my favorite birthday cake – banana cake!!
Any more, this is a common scene in our family…
After dinner, Scott handed me an envelope of tickets: TWO TICKETS TO SEE ROD STEWART in April!!!!
Craig was reffing basketball for most of the evening. But when he showed up, I was embarrassed by how well he knows my decades of bad habits. He brought in my gifts one by one….
And last but not least, a nice gift certificate to Barnes and Nobles…with a little something-something inside.
