Birthdays Galore and an extended Weekly Menu

We have been busy celebrating around here. April and May are busy months for us.  Last week we had 3 children with birthdays.  


We didn't get to celebrate with Chuck this year as he lives in Virginia but his birthday was yesterday and we did get to sing to him by telephone. 


Today is our German son, Max's, birthday.  We will celebrate with him very soon when we arrive in Germany.  He will spend a few days being our tour guide while we are there.  I can't wait!!


Our daughter, Jessica's birthday was Wednesday but we are celebrating tonight with a Fish Fry and Birthday Cake at the house.

Today is also the day we celebrate being blessed with Kirsten, born into Heaven on this date.  We went to a Mass this morning in her honor. and tomorrow the choir will be singing at a Mass dedicated to her.  I cannot explain the hole left in my heart and life without her being beside me, physically, but I know she is with me constantly.


We will be going out for dinner tomorrow night after Mass.  Thursday is our Anniversary. One of our favorite places is a local steakhouse on Thursday nights.  They have great food and a wonderful woman who does a great job with vocals serenading while we eat.  I think 32 years calls for dinner and dancing.


Friday, the dogs go into the groomer, and I will be prepping for Frank's Birthday celebration on Saturday.  Sunday we head slightly north to Bay City for a few days.  This is where Frank's naval ship was built and he and his shipmates are having a reunion.  

I am sharing a slightly extended Weekly Menu to cover Frank's Birthday Celebration which is going to start off with some Fiesta foods for Cinco de Mayo.  There will be no Weekly Menu posted for  the following week as we will be out of town.
