It's a Great Day

Two very special events are taking place in our household. Today, my eldest child celebrates her 6th birthday:


Love you, Miss E!

Last night, my brother and sister-in-law became parents for the first time, welcoming a baby girl into the world. Here's my niece, SGM:


My family is very blessed. I plan to bring treats to my daughter's class this afternoon and then spend the rest of the day with her. This evening, we dine at her favorite restaurant, the oh-so-fancy Red Robin and return to our house for cake. Yes, it will be a sugar-filled day, that's for sure! Then, I hope my week ends with a visit to the little munchkin above.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week - the weekend is almost here!

Cheers,
Jen
