Nini’s Birthday


Last week we celebrated my mom’s birthday.


Her mom joined us for dinner that evening.


Sophie was quite comfortable perched on her Boppy on the ottoman, so Nini simply rolled the ottoman into the dining room for dinner.


My dad cooked a fantastic meal—roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. And for dessert—an opera cream cake from The BonBonerie.
