In the meantime, here's a few pictures from our weekend:
Birthday meal #1: Texas Roadhouse. Yummy as always!
She opened presents and I tried to get a picture of her wearing a new pair of peridot birthstone earrings:
One shot - earrings in view!
Then Paco decided to jump up and get in the picture. Never change, Paco - never change.
I still can't resist giving my kadults a Lego set for their birthdays:
We built a Lego birthday cake!
Allie's best friend Kevin came over for dinner yesterday; full disclosure, he cooked dinner for us - but then, he always mans the grill when he comes over. Hey, I made the pasta salad at least:
Grilled sausages, pasta salad with veggies.
Allie and Kevin - friends for over half their lives!
We also made our version of a sheetcake for her birthday cake - if you haven't watched Tina Fey talking about current events and how she is dealing with them, you should (here's the link).
With the ever-present Paco.
Sheetcaking in action:
Even on a slower news day, there was still a lot to sheetcake about.
We had a great time and I'm glad we got to celebrate her birthday in person - that doesn't always happen now that she's a working adult, living several hours away from us.
Our 28-year-old daughter!
