Happy 7th Birthday, Ginny!

December 13, 2008

Last night we decorated Ginny’s bed with balloons and birthday posters while she slept (a McKissick tradition). For breakfast this morning Ginny requested chocolate chip waffles with seven candles.

For lunch the Floyds came over and we ate corndogs and watermelon from our garden (again at Ginny’s request).

At 5:30 we had two Paraguayan families over. The kids swam and Jeff grilled pork (Ginny’s favorite meat), sausage, potatoes and onions. Jean helped me make an awesome angle cake that was a big hit.

Jeff ended the birthday bash by lighting some really big/loud firecrackers (he is just like a kid!). It was a very special day!

In the middle of all the birthday preparations, Tyler fell and received his first stitches. It is really nice at times like these to have a doctor in the house.

Wish we could have been there to celebrate! Tell Ginny a late Happy Birthday from Oma, Opa and Uncle Diah. We have been traveling and haven't had easy e-mail access. We are now at Mom's. She is in surgery right now.
Let me know when a good time for us to talk on Skype and I will see if we can work something out.
I'm surprised Tyler made it this long without stiches! What happened?
Love and miss ya'll.
