Our youngest daughter celebrated another birthday today. She’s 42. I can tell you that because that’s what the candles on the cake report. You can’t miss it. But, not knowing that, you’d never guess it. She’s one of those perpetually young people who don’t age like normal folks. I think still think she and Lydia are sisters more often than now when they are together.
Lydia and Ceiarra spent Saturday at our house baking and making all sorts of minion stuff for a surprise birthday party they hosted for Jennie. The party wasn’t until Sunday evening because Jennie worked all day. She thought she was coming to our house for a family dinner cooked by the girls so it as a total surprise when Daniel drove her up and the place was full of strange vehicles. It was a good surprise and she had a good time. There was lots of chocolate and sugar infused delicacies galore.
Here’s what the table looked like before anyone showed up …
First, the cooks, Lydia and Ceiarra – they thought it was cute to hide behind the decorations … and it was …
… but they did give me a better look.
I think it’s pretty evident that the entire party was about Minions. They are Jennie’s favorite.
The guest of honor showed up about 30 minutes after everyone else.
We got her into the house …
Then convinced her to put on her minion jammies. Cute.
I didn’t mention that it was a pajama party, did I. Well, it was. Not everyone wore them but it was still a festive mix of people.
It was a fun time for everyone.
The minion ski hat was my contribution. Diane found the pattern and suggested that I make it, so I did. I still had the stitches in my thumb at the time so crocheting was tricky because the my stitches tended to get tangled up with the minion hat stitches.
Austin and Georgie – Austin wore a banana costume and Georgie had a minion hoodie. Should have had them put up their tops.
