We celebrated Crafty's birthday with a big party for the family tonight. It followed a day of General Conference and scrapbooking. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get further on the books, but it was my fault, since I underestimated the number of binders we would need. Don't get me wrong, I knew we couldn't totally get rid of the scrapbook boxes, I was just hoping...
In between conference sessions my sweetie spent the day cooking for us. He prepared homemade rolls and a delicious dutch oven meatloaf. I made the cake. Crafty blew out all 16 candles but one on the first try. She mostly got clothes (yoga pants) from everyone and craft stuff from Princess and The Frog. She was most excited about the straightener from Drama Queen.
Prima Donna came down for the weekend so she could be here for the birthday party. I think I told you we got the car fixed up this week. My sweetie didn't want her to take it back to Ogden especially not in the rain, but I convinced him she would be fine. And she was. Until she slid into the barrier right after she got on the freeway.
She called me all upset and we picked her up. The car runs and has some large new dents on the front bumper. Seriously, two accidents in a week! Thankfully, she wasn't hurt this time either. I'm so glad our kids faithfully wear their seatbelts. She does have a small cut on her shoulder where the belt caught her from being thrown through the windshield.
This is why I pray for safety every day. Multiple times.
