The Chairman was vague. 'We might do something Sunday night so keep it open' is all he said in passing once. So I imagined maybe he had invited both sets of our parents. I didn't have a clue. I may or may not have secretly tried to pull info out of the MYP but they wouldn't give me the slightest clue. Yet another example of maturity. A few years ago they would have been smiling and snickering and nearly blowing out feathers from swallowing the bird of secrecy. I just had a daughter do a bit of delay tactics which raised some suspicion but not much.
So. Maybe I'll let the pictures tell the story.
|I think 39 were with us. So I must be 39 and holding...|
True happiness is looking around the table and being surrounded by eight of my dearest friends
|My dear Chairman|
|The Chairman and Co.|
We love having your children come because of the food and bread you send with them
L is my background check for boys
If you want to know anything about anyone, ask L
L makes delicious bread (x3)
Bargain shopping is L's life
L. loves gossip (hey! no I don't!!!)
I don't know anyone more secure and ok with herself than L. Which makes it so curious how uncomfortable she is out of her comfort zone. She's actually a chicken.
There were some super-sweet, kind, and gentle words written. I'll keep them for myself and re-read them when I need a boost in self-esteem.
|that face... a picture not of joy but of embarrassment|
|yeah, a gift packed in a Victoria's Secret box can make me uneasy (and what's with the knobby knees?)|
We will return to regular broadcasting at the next Monday Musings. Thanks for bearing with me through this birthday.
