Gatherings [Oct. 13th, 2006|10:13 pm]

I have been slammed with family gatherings. They have been great, don't get me wrong, but it is very taxing. We went to my cousin's for a barbecue supper and birthday extravaganza for a couple of other cousins who shared this weekend with my grandfather's big 90th. Tomorrow Granddaddy will have his big day and it will be so lovely and a little bit of a relief to have it over with. My cousin Scott recorded my grandfather for 2 hours today, capturing loads of information to preserve on cd. We learned how important that is when my grandmother lost her memories to Alzheimer's and now we have no one left to answer so many questions about our family on her side.

There was delicious strawberry cake and loads of chatter and I am so tired.

Tomorrow I must get all the stuff for the pumpkin cause I spent all day today erranding for the party. We did get my daughter some great boots which wil double as pirate boots for her costume but don't look like a hooker so she can wear them to school.
