The food was great, and there was plenty to choose from. The wee tots all ate up their goodies.
After the meal was over, it was time to celebrate Steve's dad's birthday! Paul, the patriarch of the family has turned 80! Aunt Nancy led the kids and family in a rousing chorus of "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"
All of the little great grandkids sure enjoyed their piece of that birthday cake!!!
AND THE NEWEST ADDITION TO THE PFUNDTNER CLAN:
We enjoyed visiting and sharing stories, while I held the video camera for a while to make a film to bring to Steve's mom tomorrow. She can watch the dvd over and over and see the family gathered in love and thankfulness.
Aunt Nancy sent me home with a pumpkin pie! I have had 2 pieces already, and plan to have more yet today I am sure. LOL
Our drive home was lovely on a fall day of temps in the mid 60's blue skies and sunshine... but overnight the temps dropped drastically down to the mid 20's. Brrrrrrr Today it's all dark heavy clouds, high blasting winds, and feels like snow in the air. The wind chills are in the teens, and it sure feels like winter!
Today we avoided the Black Friday rush crowd, so we spent the morning in our warehouse space. I am touching up little nicks here and there in the dining furniture we bought... and now all of the seats are recovered in the new paisley fabric I bought. I had enough left over to cover a sweet little foot stool too.
If the weather were nicer, I would open the big door and work on the finish sanding and staining of the cabinets. No go, as long as the temps are low and the winds do blow.... oh well, I can rhyme it a little?
