We kicked things off Tuesday by going out to CiCi's Pizza before dropping Nathan and Luke off at Civil Air Patrol. Wednesday was even busier than usual because we had to have our second weekly biology class that evening, instead of Thursday afternoon. But Grace picked the complicated dish of "hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls" for her birthday, so I did manage to make that for her, LOL.
Poor Bob didn't even get his birthday dinner until tonight! I actually went to the commissary on his birthday, where I picked up a turkey. He loves turkey, but I didn't get around to putting the rub on and letting it sit in the fridge overnight until last night, so tonight was the big meal. Everyone agreed, it smelled like Thanksgiving! We had a modified meal--just turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, and green beans.
Last Friday we were finally able to make Grace's cupcakes and sing to her and Bob! She picked green and purple frosting for her cupcakes, and she frosted them, along with help from various siblings. That is why it looks like it could possibly be an ancient alphabet written on the tops, LOL. They sure had fun decorating them! Grace of course picked Funfetti as the cake flavor, even though Luke was rooting for her to pick chocolate. But what girl can resist sprinkles?! Bob was a good sport as usual in sharing his cake opportunity and agreeing to purple and green frosted cupcakes!
