chuck's wearing his purple mountain's majesty' hat from last years birthday. big mistake and happy ending here and here. it was another last minute, and almost wasn't to be.
(i broke the rules on the nutrition diet and ate the cranberry orange scone featured above, my will power and resolve is wavering.)
later at the party...

(travis's gift to granpa chuck, a rock painted with big waves)
i brought the hat, still on the needles, thinking i might finish it at my daughters. but you can imagine, it never left my basket. there were children to watch, babies to hold, presents to unwrap and candles to make wishes on. so when i kissed him 'happy birthday darling' and said goodnight, i told him i would have his hat ready when he got out of school the next day.
