Somewhere between Christmas and New Year's and the post New Year's stomach flu, fell our friend's son's birthday. Cole came early two years ago and, because Jeremy and Christy hosted several New Year's parties prior to his arrival, his eagerness spoiled many party plans that year! We have forgiven him and moved on to other plans watching the ball drop, but it is always nice to gather with his family after Christmas and before New Years and celebrate his birthday. Lydia LOVES all the toys at Cole's house and whenever we go there, I see which toys she needs next. Hmm, Cole got a motorcycle this year. We may have to hold off a little on that one.
