HBD poppyseed!!!

We didn’t plan anything big.  let’s face it we will be home Sunday am.  some steak.  some cake.  and candles.

Plus a lake glass chandelier and a broken ostrich egg map of Africa later.





We don’t have too many traditions that do here.  a few things:playing in the 1st rains, muffins Friday for breakfast and a few others.  but Rob watched nestor, the long eared donkey as a child.

So we watch it (My fav is of course a Christmas story)….
