The Birthday

Starting with the visit from the refugees last weekend, about which I have already posted, times have been busy. Many photos were taken, so I am going to be doing some family-themed updating this week. I will try yo keep the photos down to a manageable number since I know there's a threshold and people don't see them when there's too many but just keep scrolling. But they are all family-oriented, so most folk will probably scroll quickly anyway, and I'm good with that as this is mainly for my record.

You have already read of Ben, Mary and their help with the refugees; the next item on the agenda was Shauna's birthday, so here we go ...

JJ is designing a card for his mother.
The cake came in the form of a yule log.
As Mom prepared to blow out the candles, Danica beat her to it, which she thought was quite hilarious.
A family snap from around the table.
Gift time: Shauna laughs over the gift. She had somewhat cheekily suggested that Grandma crochet her a candy cane afghan, which would be a monumental undertaking. So, Grandma has actually begun although it may not be completed until next birthday.
One down: x to go.

So many birthdays over the holidays it seems. We have three in our family.

No Christmas birthdays in my family, but they start again in January!
Looks like everyone had fun, love the candy cane idea.

We have a birthday at Christmas in our family too. We always made the effort to make it special. Fun time of year.

Oh my, that will be a monumental undertaking. Would love to see the finished product!

Oh, and happy belated birthday to Shauna of course!
