My Dad grew another year wiser a few weeks back and I had their family over for supper. I have been trying to get copies of old photos from both sides of the family in order to create a "Heritage Album" and also to get some old pictures up on the wall, so I just happened to have a few photos from when my dad was a little guy~ this little factoid worked splendidly in helping me to create the best birthday dinner table-centerpiece ever. Wasn't he an adorable baby? Awwww, Dad.
Speaking of birthdays- Matt's is on Wednesday! His requested birthday meal:
Soup Course (now there are soup courses!): French Onion Soup
Marinated chicken breast
Glazed fruit salad
Three bean salad
Dessert Course: White cake with peanut butter frosting (naturally.)
Not a terribly difficult meal, nor a terribly expensive one...a perfect choice!
As for his present: I have never waited so long to get a present around for him and now I am waiting on pins and needles for it to come in the mail. It should have come on Saturday, but didn't (I figured maybe the storm?). It really should have come on Monday, but didn't (for no good reason at all) and now I am OFFICIALLY panicked.
I procrastinate on a lot of different things, but never on gifts (well, unless I am making them). I know how it feels to be forgotten on birthdays and I don't ever want the people I love to feel that way. Ever. It is rotten. So basically, I make a poor procrastinator for gift-giving and I fully intend NEVER to wait this long again. My stress levels can't take it. ) Please, mailman...come TODAY bearing gifts. Or... A gift. Pretty pleeeease....
