It was serendipity that my sister-in-law was planning a surprise birthday covered dish meal after the church service this Sunday for my mother-in-law's 75th birthday. We didn't plan to coordinate both events, but it was the one weekend my brother's family was available. It made for a big family event. The cool thing was that everyone in the church managed to keep it a surprise. Grandma was pleased.
Here she's looking at her new "Jack book." Each year a Christmas the grandma's have gotten a year-in-review book for Emma. I wanted to give Noni something to thank her for all she's done for us since Jack came (and before) and I figured a book about Jack's first days might fit the bill. I always order the books in threes ;)
