I thought about organizing a little get together for her birthday, but too much indecision and now here it is the actual day. I'm not very good at putting together parties, seems someone else in the house is the queen of that.
We're going to go out for lunch (another decision pending on the location), probably open some presents when the girls get home from school, and then maybe enjoy some cake later. Another lame thing, Kelly is making her own birthday cake. Not lame for her, since she prefers her own cakes (and who wouldn't when they are as good as they are), but just lame that I can't provide it for her.
So pretty low key, but no less special. Happy Birthday Sweetheart! I hope you enjoy a good day.

...and some of these
...mixed it with sugar and some of this
...and I got a lot of this
I made four batches of peach and one batch of blueberry. I don't even want to think about how much sugar I used. I have to make room in the freezer for all this. That means I have to pull out grapes from last year and some strawberries and I'll have to turn them into jelly and jam too. I think we'll be set for the year. I just might have to buy another little freezer to store it all.
If you ever come to our house please ask to have a peanut butter and jelly/jam sandwich. I'll promise you it will taste good.

Kade enjoyed his time today without getting picked on or having to whine about what movie he wanted to watch. Here he is playing legos. He did this most of the day, sometimes with a movie on.
I got to enjoy a quiet day. I exercised and was in the shower by 9! I also got a lot of work done around the house. That will be a post for tomorrow.
The girls made it through the first day just fine. They both like their teachers, neither one got the one they wanted but both teachers have pets in their classrooms so that's a bonus. Thursday we get to meet the teachers and see the classrooms. That will be fun. Here's to a good school year.
