Girl Holding a Letter

I'm tired tonight, but had a good day. I picked up little Isaac this morning and he came to craft with me and was a perfect child the whole morning. He played with a couple of little soft toys for about an hour and then drifted off to sleep and didn't wake up until I put him in the car to go home. 
My DIL had given me some frozen food for his tea and I put it in the church fridge while I was at craft and drove home without it. I remembered when I was a couple of houses away from our driveway and had to turn around and go back. I knew there would still be a couple of ladies there because they were staying on for a bible study and they would be able to let me in to get the container.  Luckily it only takes about 10 mins to get there when the traffic is good so that was good.  He had his lunch, a bit of a play while I had my lunch and then another couple of hours sleep while I made chocolate cheesecake slice for our son's 27th birthday.
All the family were there and also his in-laws and BIL    (except Katie, who is still away working and Lisel and the grandchildren as they were all in different locations and Lise would have had to pick them all up and then drive back here . She picked Isaac up just after 6 p.m. and then had to drive home - so that would be 1 1/2 hours(both ways) driving time plus the time to pick up the girls from 2 different places, .  Too hard and too late!!!)  - We had all pooled some money and bought him a large floor standing toolbox with lots of drawers and the top can be used as a work space as well.  He was quite impressed!!!
We all ate pizza and besides the dessert I made, our DIL had made him a luscious carrot cake too.
After arriving back home it was pretty well straight into deciding what to make tonight.
I've used another sketch challenge for this one.
