My birthday GET AWAY!

It is tea time at Lady Katherine's So I thought I would use this for her party. Beware--The tea in this post comes near the end!

For my birthday in April I treated myself to a visit to my grand kids up in NC. Below is Alden (Aldie-man) when he was up from his nap and just laying out in his Mom's arms. It is about the only time he slows down!! I love how kids are cuddly at this time of day! The kiddies and my daughter put on a little birthday party for me!

No elaborate setting!! AND of course we had tacos since the kids love them and they are great with black beans (and gluten free for me!)

Now ALdie/man loves sour cream on his, as you can see.
Below Rhianwen is bringing me her handmade card--I love these--I am using this one as a book marker.

Below my daughter is trying to get a picture and bringing the gluten free Mandarin orange cake-at the same time!-it was wonderful!! Below Aldie man is serving up the tea!
He will make someone a good hubby!!
Rhianwen loves her tea too and whenever I come we usually have some together.

There is such a blessing in spending a birthday with my grand kids and daughter!! My hubby was not here because he was working and so was my daughter's hubby---but actually it was great to have time alone with my daughter and kids!
