We had Miss F's birthday party a mere four hours after getting home from the camping trip. Her godmother took her out with her own girls for a couple of hours before the party so that I could cook - prepping hamburger patties, making baked beans, potato salad, home-grown veggie platter, and homemade chocolate ice cream (drool).
What a wonderful year it's been! I'm so privliged to be her mother. Though it's the toughest job I've ever had, I look forward to many more years to come.
