Grateful for celebrations...

I love a good party. We had a great one today - good food (Pad Thai, made by Michael and myself,) good company (Mom and Chick, my sister Giana and her family, my brother Trevor and his family,) lots of good conversation, a great dessert (Chocolate Trifle, made by McKelle!) and a reason to celebrate (Mom's 60th.)

I love everything about celebrations - the decorations, the food, the planning, the fun. I love how much my kids enjoy it all. Birthdays, holidays (even the funny made-up kind - have you heard of National Men Make Dinner Day??? Or Chocolate Chip Cookie Appreciation Day?), and everyday in-between days. I love making these traditions with my family and the joy we have doing it.
