Happy Birthday Jason! Jason turned 32 years old today, and it was a wonderful day for all of us. We woke up to the sound of Kojak winning and waking everybody up. Apparently Jason was keeping him in his kennel for a little while and Kojak didn't like it, and Kojak can "sing" pretty loud. Linda went down stairs to see what was going on and helped Jason by taking Kojak out to the backyard. He was happy again and in a few minutes they were back inside and Linda was coming back up to the room. After all, it wasn't quite 05:00 yet, and she wanted to get back to sleep.
Funny part is, it gave her a chance to be the first one to wish Jason a Happy Birthday. We did manage to get back to sleep and slept for almost an hour and woke up again. Shortly after that we had a visit from Jackie, and she was full of energy. After about 15 minutes we realized we were going to have to be getting up, so we did. Jackie bounded back down the stairs to go see what Daddy was doing, and she wanted to wish him a Happy Birthday, too. As it turned out, Stacy was also in with Daddy, and they were all playing in the bed.
Shortly after all this crazy fun, we managed to get the girls dressed and eat some breakfast. It was starting to get a little later in the morning and didn't want to be late to church . Jason wasn't going with us this time, as he wanted to just stay down, and I was totally happy with that. The girls always look forward to Sunday School, and today was no exception - just wish we could take them every Sunday.
We came home and the rest of the day was pretty "normal" and relaxed. We had lunch and the girls went down for their "brain-rest" - that's what they like to say instead of, "Nap." The only other thing I did was to go to Costco and pick up a few things and take the Fusion to the car wash, since they indicated that today was to be the last day for the Free car wash. I was hoping to get the van back over, and vacuum it out one more time, but I'm not sure if that is going to happen now, without having to pay for a wash that it doesn't need.
Dinner tonight was grilled New York Steaks, and they came out very nice. We had bake potatoes and salad, along with some vegetables and Hawaiian Sweet Bread. Then for dessert we had a chocolate cake - or I guess I should say, they had the chocolate cake, and I just had ice cream. The girls gave him their gift (a framed photo) and they wrapped it themselves. They used plain paper and drew on it for decorations. It was really very nice. By now it is getting pretty late so Linda took the girls up to the bath and I cleaned the kitchen (I think I got the easier task). They went to bed after Grandma read them a story and the rest of us aren't far behind. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
