We had a really sweet evening tonight, eating and spending time together relaxing in the back yard. We all sang and the kids danced, and even did a little limbo (the kids are dirty cheaters.)
It's also been nice to spend time with Mary, who is a very sweet soul. She has seven kids of her own and a whole passel of grandkids. On Friday when Ellie was over at Gigi's house after school, she and Mary made an easy chocolate cake recipe that Mary had brought with her. It was hilarious - as we were walking to school on Friday morning I said "Mary really know how to make cakes, because she has a ton of grandkids," and without missing a beat Ellie goes "yeah, but I'm her favorite." Whatever you say kid!
