Happy Birthday Mel and Carol.

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Yesterday Carol and John came out and took Hansen and Lillie out school shopping while Preston and I went golfing. We played 9 holes at Jade Green and just squeaked in our round between the rain. And it did rain plenty yesterday. The kids did get some very nice school shirts, and Lillie got a very cute backpack. Thanks John and Carol.

Yesterday was also Mel's birthday, and today is Carol's birthday. Happy birthday Mel and Carol! Early yesterday morning me and Lillie made a cake for Carol. Not being the cake making expert, I frosted the cake too soon after it came out of the oven and the frosting kept running off and piling on the bottom. It actually worked out great because the cake looked quite fancy as it looked glazed, and the kids (and Nana) enjoyed scooping the extra frosting off the plate with their fingers. The cake looked very good with the sprinkle thingies that were put on the cake, but when Hansen and Lillie helped blow out the candles (luckily we only put 4 candles on the cake, to represent the second digit in her birthday age) the sprinkle things blew all over the floor. The cake was very good!

Today Lillie has a Kindergarten assessment, and Mr. Jim is coming over to visit. Maren is taking the day off from work and we all slept in this morning.

See you tomorrow.
