Last week in pictures
The above picture was taken on the big day, lol. My son and DIL fixed a nice dinner for my Hubby and I While Mommy and Daddy made the meal, these two served it. They were as quiet as a couple of mice. Now, Rudy, the puppy, he wasn't. He stole all our napkins off our laps. He was relocated to the laundry room. Poor little fellow he can't stay out of trouble. Instead of cake we had gluten free apple crisp. It was so good. Making dinner during the week wasn't easy as this little family is a busy one.
I also heard from all of my kids. That's always nice to be remembered.
Hubby got me flowers. I met my mother the next day for lunch and she gave me some presents. The softest ever night shirt and some little thing.
I think my favorite gift of all was from my grandson, pictured above. He wrote this long sweet note how much he loved me and gave me $40. Hah, he is 8 years old. I said, "Oh, I can't take this money from you." His parents said I had to take it. They didn't want him to think that if he gave someone something that they would just give it back. Then he would do this all of the time. That's hard to explain and I know I didn't explain it right. Any whoooo, I compromised . I took half of it and said I would spend it by taking them somewhere. I think we all agreed that was okay.
My husband took the day off so we could do something special on my birthday. We have had a gift card for dinner and movie. One of those while you view the movie they take your order and bring it to you. We have never done this before. It was nice. Nice comfy seats and not very crowded. We saw, "This is where I leave you." It was a good movie. We didn't get to go on my birthday because we had two showings. One at 10:00 a.m and another at 5:30 p.m. Because of the later showing we couldn't take off to do the movie. WELL, you probably guessed it. The first one came but the second was a no show. (I spy so I know) 24 hours later the person says he still wants to look at the house but had been in a meeting. So he came Friday evening. When he left he messed up our landscaping. We have heard that neither thought the house would work for them. Back to square one. It is what it is.
I will leave you with some pictures of the Pumpkin Patch that Baby O. and I went to yesterday. It looked like it was going to rain so we weren't there long. Also, all of a sudden large wooden things like scarecrows really scare her. Nothing like a Pumpkin Patch to cheer you up. Storms are coming our way today. I am headed out to see what I can find to make for the Christmas mini swap. Yep, I signed up again.
