Birthday week.

A whirlwind recap of Edda's birthday week!

Rearranged the house for the party the night before:

Jeremy made enough pancake batter for 512 pancakes.

And bacon (30 pounds) was pre-cooked the night before:

Then the party started.  A lot of people came right at 9 am.  We had so many toddler guests.  Jeremy works with a lot of people who have a lot of babies.  Ruby was perfect, although it's been a long time since she's entertained so many children.  By the end of the party, I could see Ruby hiding under a chair with her rear half still accessible to children who wanted to pet her, but she could nap in peace at the same time.

Lauren made a beautiful cake for Edda - I love the blue and the flowers.  And I loved eating three pieces, one right after the other, after the last guests left.



I like this photo because Edda is eating someone's hoodie.

The pancake station.  The party was nice, a reminder that I have a whole community around me helping me out.

After the party, Edda had a few more days of school before spring break.  I sent this video in to Edda's teacher to tell him how to put on brace.  I don't often see video of me, so it's interesting to see how I look to other people, rather than how I think I look to other people in my head.

Spring break started on Edda's actual birthday (24th) - we had a family birthday breakfast.

Pardon Vince, he's a little sleepy as we made him get up at the ungodly hour of 8 am on the first day of spring break to sing happy birthday.  The rest of us had to get our day started - 8 am was already late!



Lana's flowers that she brought over for the pancake breakfast were perfectly in bloom on Edda's birthday.

Jeremy made blueberry oatmeal muffins (healthy b/c of the inclusion of oatmeal), but not really that tasty as evidenced by a few of them still remaining under the glass dome a full day later.

And fruit salad - Edda's favorite type of salad.

Nat came by to give a gift!

Today I took some time off and saw Deb at OT.

We went to Panera's for lunch where we bumped into some friends.

Finally to top off the week of birthday - we went to Kenwood in Bethesda to see the cherry blossoms - peaking today!

Finally, we did have cupcakes at Georgetown Cupcake, but no photos.  They were eaten too quickly.
