Sunday Summary: 11 Years

Friday was the girl’s 11th birthday. We’re having her party today. Thursday my dad came up and took us to dinner. He got both the kids big brownies at Pizza Hut. The boy’s birthday isn’t until 9/3, but my dad won’t be here for that, either. We’re having her party today. Ordered an ice cream cake, so that was one less thing I had to worry about last night. I did bake 2 loaves of zucchini bread though.

She opened gifts from us Friday night. I bought wrapping paper when I got the gifts last Sunday but was apparently not paying any attention. Because as I was wrapping them Wednesday night, I realized the paper said “baby” all over it, not “birthday”. Oops.

For now, here’s my progress for the week.

  1. My dad’s birthday is also 9/3! Having a cookout for him next week, along with for my daughter’s and brother’s birthdays, which just passed. LOL at the baby wrapping paper, but I’m sure your daughter was more interested in what was inside!
