Happy Birthday!

For those of you who haven't read our comments, Kevin is back home!  He got home last weekend from his military duty in Hawaii and hopefully will be here for awhile now.  (Every time I say he is home for good, something happens, so I am not saying that!)  So we are all happy to have our whole family at home together again.  He is home just in time to help us celebrate a big day tomorrow.   Kelly and Megan's 16th birthday is tomorrow!  We are taking them out to dinner tonight since tomorrow is busy with school and dance (that Megan won't miss, even for her birthday.)  Megan also just got her driving permit and is driving every chance she can get.  

This week, on September 25th, Cold Stone Creamery is having a Make A Wish Ice Cream Social between 5:00 and 8:00 pm. So here is a good reason to go have some Ice Cream and support Make A Wish.  Kelly will be helping at our Mission Viejo Cold Stone Creamery at Gateway Center as a Wish Kid Greeter.  This is what we received in an email about the event:

Throughout the month of September, Cold Stone Creamery will be selling Make-A-Wish wall stars to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Be sure to visit your local Cold Stone Creamery to try two new flavors, Nutter Butter® and Marshmallow, and the very special “Make-A-Wish Creations” inspired by Jack and Emily, two Wish Children.

· Jack's Creation - Marshmallow ice cream with OREO® Cookies, Chocolate Chips and Fudge
· Emily's Creation - Nutter Butter® ice cream with White Chocolate Chips, Kit Kat® and Yellow Cake

To cap off this special month, don't miss the 7th Annual World’s Largest Ice Cream Social at participating Cold Stone Creamery locations nationwide, a special night to join together and share the simple pleasures of life with a FREE ice cream and family fun. On September 25th from 5:00 - 8:00PM, guests will be treated to a 3 oz. serving of Jack or Emily's Creation. Donations will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Hopefully, Kelly will feel well enough to participate since her chemo day is this Wednesday.  We are going back to our morning time.  When she had her treatment in the afternoon, she was sick most of the night, so she wants to go back to morning so she'll hopefully feel better by bedtime and be able to sleep.

Happy birthday to you both. When I was a teenager, in the last century, girls on Long Island got corsages made up of different things. I don't remember all of them, but I do know it was bubble gum for the thirteenth, sugar cubes for the sixteenth, and cigarettes for the eighteenth (what a bad idea that was). Does anything like that still exist, or is it just one more indication that I'm OLD?

Anyway, the ice cream social is a good idea. I hope you both have a lovely day.
