Poor Yiayia....every year we celebrate her birthday right in the thick of pumpkin guts and carving stress. Although this year the stress level was much lower, the amount of pumpkin guts everywhere was not. It's a messy gig, what can I say?
Since the 29th fell on a weekend this year, Nick was able to spend the whole day carving as well. We usually only get to see him in the evenings. So when he arrived that morning, he brought flowers for Yiayia to surprise her. Kate presented them to her and they promptly found a spot on the mantle with her other birthday flowers.
