Well, it's been almost two weeks since Jimmy's birthday, but I still wanted to blog about it.
Jimmy was off work for his special day, and we spent the day together as a family, just taking it easy. The morning began with breakfast and gifts. The children all made their daddy handmade cards, and we gave him one special gift---a telescope! Jimmy has been wanting a telescope for some time now, and I actually surprised him. He had no idea what his gift was before he opened it. We have enjoyed looking at the moon and Jupiter. We saw 4 moons around Jupiter!

Julie framed her card, and we hung it in our bedroom.
After a leisurely morning at home, we visited Jimmy's parents for lunch. Jenny, Grace, and Megan were there too, so we had a mini-birthday celebration. Granmomma made Jimmy's favorite dessert--pecan pie. I was so glad that she made the pies, because I have not been able to perfect my pecan pie making!

After our visit, we rushed home to get ready for cross country practice. Then we rushed home to get ready for church.
The day started off slowly, but ended quite busy. I think Jimmy had a great day! We all were certainly glad to celebrate with him!
