Ryan's 35th birthday was Tuesday. He was busy that day, so we arranged to have a little celebration here last night. After spending the day buying a new car (Mazda 5) and selling the van to Oscar and Jocelyn, everyone was hungry ready for dinner. All six of the "older" kids had stayed with me while their parents did all the car negotiating. They made cards for Ryan and were pretty well behaved. I only had two "time outs". Here's what Ryan picked for his dinner menu:
Smoked Chicken Leg Quarters
Oven Roasted New Potatoes
After we ate, Jocelyn had to leave fast to teach her enrichment class on "Blogging". The rest of us stayed to eat cake and open presents. As you can see above, the kids enjoyed watching as much as opening themselves.
