Random thoughts

*Be careful when looking for information or you will end up at the mall yelling into your cell phone to your father-in-law, "No, F-U...."
(I was trying to spell fuego to him and he kept asking "S-U...?". The store attendant thought it was pretty funny, too)

*Did you know Frecken street is between First street and Third street?
(yet another cell phone conversation((but not with my f-i-l)))

*The saddest and funniest thing in the world is a baby trying to poop when their poop is a bit hard. (they half walk, half squat, and scream and cry and turn red in the face and hold their breath and then come to you for comfort and help) (you know what I mean if you are a m0m)

*Nothing says spring like laundry hanging on the line to dry,( and it drys and not freezes.)

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, it was my birthday last week and yes I was VERY sick. Not fun!! But on the other hand I got to have cake and ice cream for breakfast because not everyone was going to be around later and we did my celebrating in the morning. This is the yummy!!! ice cream cake Doug made for me. ( he does it every year!) (notice the + sign, I had got the 33 for his cake) ( so yes it says 33 + 1) on it. The kids loved that. The best thing of all was my presents. The girls all got me various wonderful, thoughtful, gifts they picked out themselves (thank goodness for the dollar store), and my hubby came through with flying colors and got me the legos game Indiana Jones and the star wars saga!!!!!!! I love legos games on the xbox. Clara and I play for hours. (Yes, we are junkies) He also claims he got me lazier pointing scissors ( they have yet to come in the mail) ( but it would be so cool if they ever did!!!!)
So in the time honored tradition of Birthday salutes in the blog world here are a few of my favorite things about the Birthday person. (ME)

1.I have always loved having red hair. Georgeous!!!
2. My smile. (it has brought many wonderful things to me, including my hubby)
3. My hubby
4. My kids (99% of the time)
5. My sewing. I love everything about it, buying the fabric, cutting the fabric, sewing the fabric, and making something wonderful.
6. My quick wit.
7. I love my giving nature.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!
