celebration in our household
to celebrate birthdays in our family, we usually all get together for a meal and the birthday person gets to pick what we have for dinner.
Caine is our birthday boy today and he has chosen steak dianne, mashed potatoes and beans along with 'his favourite' strawberry cream pie served with King Is. cream of course !!!
He did ask that I cook smoked cod - but there is a limit to what a mother will do for her children, isn't there? The table is set in its finery, water jugs on the table and always, always a teeny bunch of whatever I have in my garden. When we sing happy birthday, we have this ridiculous wind up birthday card from the 1940's that we play. You have to wind it real fast for it to work - sometimes it goes fast and sometimes real slow and many times it misses beats - but what fun!
