On Saturday we took my Godson Norman to the movie theater to see A Christmas Carol in 3D. We had a lot of fun. The movie was great but a little scary for the younger kids. Halainah and Cassie who are 6 months apart had a play date at Cassie's house. Halainah had a blast. The cousins played and shared and made lots of noise. Aunt Deb made dinner for us when we got back and we had a chance to chit chat while the kids played nicely together.

On Sunday we ventured out to Staten Island to celebrate my father-in-laws 80th birthday. It was a very special day. The entire family gathered to help my father-in-law celebrate such an important milestone. We are so very thankful that he was released from the hospital on Saturday so that he was able to enjoy his birthday at home. The house was noisy and rowdy with all of the cousins playing together but I wouldn't want it any other way. It truly was so very nice to see everyone together, laughing and enjoying one's company. I had a blast playing with all of our special angels and catching up on days gone by. I pray that we can celebrate many more birthdays with my father-in-law and that we can all gather around the table as a special family.

And I just had to throw this pic. in. Tony was messing around with my early Christmas present special from him, my new camera. This is a setting on the camera. Halainah is watching Elmo on her early Christmas present, her portable DVD player.

We all had a wonderful most memorable weekend. And we are praying for many more weekends just like this one!

God Bless!
