Birthday Traditions

My mother-in-law is currently staying with us as she battles some virus she seems to have contracted upon her arrival back into Tasmania. The boys were delighted to find out that it was going to be her birthday tomorrow & insisted we set up the birthday table. Who am I to argue?

So out came the birthday cloth, a few extra presents, & Morgan picked out some roses from the local shop. Orange ones, have you ever seen orange ones? They had another shade I'd never noticed before either, but Morgan wanted the orange ones. The boys wrapped up gifts & set the table up before going to bed. Then they appeared again to ask Nana if they could wake her in the morning.  Birthdays get an awful lot of attention around here.

Yes, she was so excited. She said, she might just come stay every year on her birthday. Ha!
