Aside from the love of my life being five-thousand-two-hundred-and-eighty-four miles away in Ukraine (I did the math), it was a pretty-nearly-perfect-in-every-way-day! Beautiful crisp,clear autumn day…reminiscent of unforgettable childhood birthdays!
Evie has added yet another specialist to her growing list of doctors. We met her opthamologist today about a blocked tear duct that she’s had since birth. She very well might be the first child in history to sleep through an eye exam. I mean lifting her lids, probing, shining lights, the whole nine-yards. She was an angel!
My wonderful mother-in-law took me to lunch and my father-in-law gets honorable mention for watching the kids – brave guy! The afternoon was complete with cake & ice-cream with my precious kiddos, oodles of sticky hugs and kisses and gaudy cards and a dozen gorgeous roses. Evie LOVED watching her siblings blowing bubbles…got some great belly-laughs out of her!!
Evie had a present for me too. While I was cleaning up the dinner dishes, she was playing on my kitchen floor. I turned to see her half-way up the stairs on the landing……uh-oh…trouble’s brewing!
What a year its been! Counting my many blessings!!!
