Snow Days and Birthdays

Snow Friday, and again this morning. I could hear a flock of geese or ducks (hey, they were up in the sky, give me a break!) making loud noises as they flew overhead in a V formation as I took this picture. They're there, in the trees, but probably hard to pick out.

Patrick's birthday was Thursday. Larry the Lobster adorned his cake. Yes, that is random. But the cake had chocolate frosting, and to the sister who decorated the cake, it made sense, because Thor is brown and so was the cake.

Patrick and his parents. This is a puzzle box, with a hidden key, keeping his birthday present from him.

Sunday entertainment: Brother and Sister crossword puzzle. Brother was not that helpful: "Too many letters? Just write small!" and "Punishment for child? Beat!" An hour of solid amusement.

Happy Birthday Patrick! Love the cake. And, boy oh boy, you look STUNNING in that color of dress. Seriously, you look just beautiful. On my computer the dress looks a deep yet bright blue. Wow! Love seeing you and your hubby with your boy. Keep warm!
