March 4th is our daughter Jill's birthday. This year she will be 39! I don't know if she'll want to celebrate her next one, but for now we're getting ready to party!
Friday I picked the kids up from school for early release and we went to Party City and Micheal's for party goods. Back at the house, Isaac made a card on the computer and Irene painted a picture for her mom.
Photos will have to wait. We need to keep secrets.
Then we decorated the dining room with Grandpa's help.
Today I baked pies and cupcakes, got the table set up, and made sure everything was ready for Sunday.
For her birthday gifts, Jill has requested that we all join her at REI, the outdoor store, to help her replace some of the gear she'll be needing as she continues to take classes with The Mountaineers. Then we'll all come back here to our house for a deli style lunch and birthday desserts. Jill's favorite is cherry pie.
I think we're set.
Along with party prep, I did some sewing requests for my guys. Corey needed two pair of pants hemmed for his new uniform. He has been in training and will be ready Monday to start on the job as a Metro Security Officer.
Jake needed a patch sewn on to his supporter group soccer scarf. That was an easy job.
I even got in a four mile walk today, but then I blew it by going to Red Robin for dinner. The bacon cheese burger with fries was wonderful!
I'll work on the diet after the weekend.
