How Lucky We Are

First of all, it is a miracle that this picture is up for viewing, as Blogger hasn't been letting us upload photos lately. I had a post that I was working on to put up yesterday, but because of the picture uploading problem, it will have to wait until later. In the meantime, here is a picture our friend Sheila sent us from a couple of weeks ago when we all met at the local Chinese/Thai/Japanese restaurant to celebrate her husband Peter's birthday. It was very nice of them to invite us, and we had lots of fun getting to chat with the family. Sheila has a grandbaby whose about 8 months younger than Sophia, so they had fun exchanging glances from their high chairs.

When I look at this picture I'm reminded how Sophia was such a good girl at the restaurant that day. I'm reminded that not all trips to restaurants are horrible, especially when good friends are around to help you keep those kids in check. Ever since Sophia was first born, we've been able to count on Peter, Sheila, and their family to provide us with all kinds of help, encouragement, and words of advice. So it is no surprise that we can meet them at a restaurant and find that Sophia is just as ready to listen to them as she is to us. How lucky we are to have such friends.

Yes, good friends are important. I'm glad they're there to help since your family isn't there to help you. Looking forward to our weekend together. Love you--Mom

How nice! Glad the system is back up for photos--Say hi to Shiela for me! She is so sweet--and I'm glad she's got a darling grandchild too!

Happy Birthday Sophia! (Katie, I hope you're up for the "terrible two's" and that they aren't too terrible!!!)
