Lily has so much fun with her Papa. She’s very lucky to have him and truth be told we’re lucky to have him because he keeps her entertained while we make dinner most nights among other reasons. I was making dinner the other day and heard Lily giggling her head off. She yelled for me to come and see so I did. This is what I found.
I turned 38 at the end of March. It was a Monday and Lily was none too pleased when she asked “what special things we were going to do for my birthday” and I told her “nothing until dinner. The rest of the day was going to be normal except for birthday creme brulee after lunch”. Oh No. Lily wasn’t having any of this. She wanted my birthday to be special, like I make her birthdays fun and special. She wouldn’t allow us to go to the library for her little art class even though I begged and pleaded. No way was I going to tell her why I love my Monday morning’s at the library, she gets to do art for about 30 minutes and I get to sit next to a usually sunny window and read my book in relative peace. Bliss. Nope, art is fun for her and we aren’t doing that on my birthday. Fine.
To help make my birthday special Lily decorated the house for me. She asked for the crape paper I keep in the closet and went to town. There was a string of crape paper here and there and a few other on the other wall. This one was my favorite though.
She also made me a wonderful birthday card and best of all a special birthday song and dance.
I made creme brulee for my birthday. I had never had it before, but always wanted to eat it and best of all make it. I mean I got to buy a torch for it. Best thing ever. The creme brulee was amazingly yummy and pretty easy to make.
We did our usual thing and went out to dinner for my birthday. We went to Flatbread Pizza Oven and it was so yummy. I thought I had taken a
bunch few pictures, but couldn’t find them. Oh well, who really wants to see our amazing pizza and salad when you could see the pictures we took before we left the house?
Lily and her arm. Silly kid.
Lily insisted that we take a picture with Clarice so we went all out. She was taking the picture so we figured she got to pose us.
My birthday was very special because I spent it with the ones I love the most. I have no complaints.
Sunday I made French toast and scrambled eggs. Lily loved it.
Lily still loves her belly dancing dress that my Mom’s wife Cory gave her. I think it’s adorable, but very noisy.
My grandma Memaw’s birthday was the week before Christmas. Lily decorated the envelope of the card we got her and before we mailed it off I asked her to stand by the tree so I could take a picture. She asked me to record her so I was happy to do so.
I’m hoping that when one of my aunts or my Mom goes to visit Memaw next they can show her this. *hint hint*
