Abuela and I (abuelo) [grandma & grandpa] enjoyed being with two of our grandchildren at their respective birthday celebrations today (Saturday, Feb. 25th). We also remembered Zhaleh’s birthday (Paul’s wife) which was on Friday. Paul’s was earlier this month..
First we had lunch at McDonald’s in Waxahachie and later met at Jonathan & Brenda’s house to open presents and see the special birthday cake. It was Lucas Jeter’s 4th Birthday – Happy Birthday Lucas!!! McDonald’s is his favorite place to eat. He really enjoyed the brand new indoor play gym there. At the house Lucas opened up his presents from us. The large, cardboard house with windows, door, mailbox slots, and a chimney was specifically designed for coloring/painting. Lucas, Jacob & Emily all enjoyed putting together the playhouse. Lucas could almost stand up inside. And they all colored different parts.
Then we went to Midlothian (Texas) – only 11 miles away – to celebrate Audrey Jeter’s 2nd Birthday. Since we have been overseas for 4 years, we had only seen Audrey by Skype before we came home to Texas. Zhaleh’s father & mother were both there as well as her brother and sister. We had a wonderful celebration with lasagna & salad and later cake and ice cream. Audrey loved opening her presents. Her older brother Jack (almost 4) really wanted to help. We all had a great time! Then it was back home to prepare for services tomorrow.
