Katie has a birthday . . .

Yesterday was Katie's birthday. Doesn't she look beautiful and the baby was only 11 days old!!! I am so happy for them, things with Leanora are going so well.

Katie's Mom made an amazing dinner of leg of lamb, mashed potatoes, and spinach. I made a tossed salad and a birthday cake, chocolate of course.

My daughter-in-law is a marvelous cook with baking her specialty so I was intimadated making her cake. One layer stuck in the pan and it didn't rise as much as I would have liked but it tasted good so that was okay.

That baby is so sweet and they are one happy family. Pat has been off work for a week and they have had a great bonding time. While he was off he painted the diningroom. It is coming together and I love the green they chose.

The baby kept smiling in her sleep so I had to take this picture.

Katie's Mom just loved snuggling with the baby, well we all did of course.
