Despite not going home to Missouri for the holiday, we had a great weekend 'round here - piddling, staying out, sleeping in, cuddling, moving watching...relaxing much more than usual. Sunday brought a great time in worship & teaching with our CLC family. Out to a yummy lunch with Uncle Bob, then off to Chicago for some Jazzy puppy play, park & beach fun.
While lunching with UB, Gracie was reviewing her list of special treats she will soon enjoy as the birthday girl. Her party just days away, she is reveling in the those things in which she alone will partake. Things like the unique birthday cup she asks for every hour; the lovely hula skirt & lei top piece thing; the colorful flower clip to adorn her hair and finally, six swipes at the birthday pinata - it's a poor fish this year taking a beating...
As Grace basked in anticipatory glory as Queen of the Birthday Day, UB reminded her that as the special birthday girl she gets a birthday spanking of six swats from each guest. She lost all eloquence & simply replied "I wish I was turning three." =) Yes, every year older brings its own pain.
