Happy Happy Happy 19th Birthday to Lillian Darnell

Today, Monday, 9.14.20, at 4:00pm PST Lillian Darnell and I will be live for about 30 minutes so her friends and YOU can help her celebrate her 19th birthday!

We had plans to go to the arboretum this morning, then a poolside BBQ with The Romano Duo this afternoon. But …. Air Quality from the fires in California is in the unhealthy range. 😢😢😢 … We will still do all planned but will have to be another day …

Please join us. She’s had a rough time, not being able to have our typical dates since mid-March. She’s not been inside anywhere since then. We hope to see as many of you as possible! Much love to you! xoxo (We will have Zoom as back up should facebook live not play nice. Last year we kept losing our connection!)

The “LIVE” celebration on facebook …

The goodies. The cake looks like hell, but tasted like heaven. It’s vegan. It’s gluten free. It’s delicious. Looks had to fall by the way side. 🤪

Why so many photos blowing out the candles? Up until the 10th birthday or so, Lillian could not “blow” to blow out candles. Still takes a few times. But she can blow wind now!!

Movie Night: The Little Mermaid Live!

May 2 2020

Team TLC Movie Night – Lillian’s choice: “The Little Mermaid Live!”

Lillian says, “Good, musical, and my two favorite characters are the two Ariels (Auli’i Cravalho and Jodi Benson).”

I say, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this. I’ll be okay if it doesn’t happen again. I did like two of the songs, ‘Under the Sea’ and ‘Les Poissons’.”

Thomas sat this one out.

Movie Night: The Princess and the Frog

April 24 2020

Camilla and Lillian extra movie night: The Princess and the Frog – We watched this years ago. So …. second time around.

Lillian says, “Good, favorite character is Tianna, liked the songs, my favorite part was the 2 weddings, and the end, and recommend 100% for this time.

I say, “Like the music in this one!”
