A Couple of Birthday Stories

Just a couple of quick stories I really want to share.

My birthday is December 26. For those of you who do not know anyone that has a birthday during that week after Christmas, let me just tell you, IT STINKS! When your little you can't have a party because all of your friends are out of town and there is just too much going on. People try to combine gifts for Christmas and birthday. As a kid, this just isn't much fun. Fortunately, I am a spoiled rotten only child. So I always have had a special time set aside just for me because it was my birthday. I always had presents wrapped in birthday wrap. and candles on a birthday cake. Christmas was no where to be found. Until this year!

As you know from my previous posts, my mom worked out of town for the entire month of December. Not only did she not have much time to shop and decorate, she was going to be gone on my birthday. So she did something she has not done in 45 years - SHE GAVE ME A COBO GIFT! I just had to share with you the picture of my gift. You can see she is very imaginative and I love her so much! Thanks Mom for always making me feel special, no matter what day of the year it is!

The left side is in Christmas wrap and says to open 12-24-07/The right side is birthday wrap and says do not open until 12-26-07!
She is just so clever!

Mattie May turned 2 this year but due to circumstances beyond our control, we had to postpone her birthday party. Not her birthday, that is always a special day, just the party.

Grumpy arranged for a party at Mr. Gatti's (thank you Bill and staff for making it such a great time!). So here are a few pictures of our "Little Diva" -

"I'm two - see my flashing scepter says so."

Gotta love that dark purple icing!

After her party, she was a bit wired from to much cake and not enough nap, so Katie and I took her out to "Fort Imagination". This is the best park in town. She loves it out there.

Playing "Peek-a-Boo" in the cheese.

Life is so good when you live in a bubble.

I hope this is the only jail I ever have to get these two out of!
Of course you know these are not the only pictures of her birthday that I have, I just didn't want to bore any one!

I do hope the picture in jail will not be something we EVER see again.
Creativity does flow in our family. Your mom's gifts are just way too cool. For a busy woman, she gets right to it and does it in style!
I need you to come help me get my new computer up and going.
