Aria, Daniele and Sofia were with us after the Christmas holidays until January 7th. So it was especially nice to celebrate my birthday with them on the 4th.
Coffee, sweet treats, and lovely birthday surprises were a wonderful way to start the day.
Grazie Mille Judy and Isa. Best birthday breakfast and a wonderful start to my day.
Ciao, Ciao now we are off to pick up Daniele and have a birthday lunch with my cousin Nancy and Uncle Renso.
Sofia was well entertained by "Auntie Nancy"
I had fun working on the jigsaw puzzle
Daniele enjoyed talking with Uncle Renso
Nancy kept Sofia entertained
We feasted on great Italian deli sandwiches and pasta salad
Nancy baked me a beautiful flourless chocolate cake
and she gifted me with one of her beautiful water color paintings. This one is a beautiful persimmon painting.
What a wonderful afternoon with family. Thank you Nancy and Uncle Renso.
When we got home I found another gift on the front porch. This one left by my dear friend Tracy. Thank you Tracy! That was such a nice surprise.
Home to open gifts and tons of cards which I will post tomorrow.
Thank you Aria, Daniele, Sofia and Mike. A wonderfully perfect Birthday!
