What a great weekend with my family for my 83rd birthday. My son and his wife came in Thursday night late after having driven from KC to Michigan in one day. My middle granddaughter and her husband came from Portland, OR, and stayed with Sherry and Barc. Saturday we had a dinner here and then all went to the Loons ball game - a farm team for the Dodgers that is based here. Dow Chemical is the big employer in Midland and they were responsible for the absolutely wonderful stadium that was built a few years ago. Great place for families and baseball fans to go have a fun evening. Sunday was a steak cookout at my daughter's home. Missing and missed were Hannah and Norah and family. However, we all talked to Hannah on the phone over the weekend and she sounds wonderful. She was telling us how she has added electricity in each room now from the one hanging bulb she had. We are amazed. And she has painted all (probably 3) rooms different colors and all have pink doors. What a girl! We also skyped with Norah, Chad and Henry on Sunday and got to watch the little baby funny faces and hear some of his little sounds. Labor Day weekend Sherry, Barclay and I will fly to Colorado and meet Henry - so looking forward to that so much. Aunt Molly will fly in from Portland, too.
All in all, I had such a happy birthday. I enjoyed the birthday comments so much. Blogging and quilting keep me busy and moving along. I did, however, have two naps yesterday and did not get much done. I have days like that every once in a while anyway! Thank you, my dear family, I love you all.
