Jack had a great birthday yesterday. We had a small little party for him yesterday at home with dinner, presents, and pear pie, and then when Jack went to his Bible study group, they had another party for him with vanilla cake and an icing-topped brownie, decorated by his friend Sadie. Needless to say, seventeen is starting off with a sugar-induced rush. And the celebrating has only just begun. Tonight Brittany and I are taking Jack to see the new 007 flick, and the rest of the weekend is going to be fun fun fun as well, which is good because the next several weekends are so busy with family obligations, Thanksgiving prep work and shopping, and the holiday party at the farm (which will be a lot of fun), not to mention that I gotta start thinking about Christmas shopping and decorating and activities! It’s getting to be that busy, crazy time of the year, and I absolutely love it.
