My hubby got me a digital video camera and chocolates. My kids made me cards and gave me a CD (Bruce Springstein) and we went out to dinner. Olive Garden. Mmmmmm

I'm working midnights this weekend...but that's ok because it leaves the afternoon for celebrating after I get up :-)

We had a vegie cookout on my parents' deck (next door to our house) so we could celebrate together. My mom has dietary and hearing issues that make restaurant eating difficult...and a cookout doesn't require a lot of work so even if we had to help chop things, it was ok ;-) DD made sushi...first time she ever made it...yummmmmmy. She did great! And dh took us all out for ice cream after we ate...also yummy. (Mom & I both had cranberry pomegranate sorbet that was to die for!)

We gave me mom a nice pair of earbuds, a calla lily plant, and dd is making her a photo & artwork collage except the photos she ordered (free prints from Shutterfly) won't be here til tomorrow, so grandma got a large gift bag with a silly note on a sticky note at the bottom of the bag and tomorrow she'll get the real gift ;-) DH got us each a nice bouquet. My kids take ceramics lessons so my gifts were both of the clay variety. DD made me a pretty square plate with an engraved floral & vines design along two edges. It would be perfect for crackers and cheese :D DS made me a Chinese-inspired vase, using the coiled clay technique, and with a serpent winding around the outside. He glaze the whole thing red, and then used black glaze to brush on random Chinese characters. It really looks neat. He seems to like oriental-inspired creations...this is the 2nd or 3rd thing he's made that has Eastern influence. For 9, that's pretty good, I think. (He's also in the midst of preparing his own clay that he dug, and is using Native American techniques to get it ready for use. The studio does a good job of appealing to his "male side" LOL.)
