A Tale of Birthdays
January is always a busy month at the castle with three birthdays filling the calendar. It was Ethan's turn to have a small party, so he chose Luke O. and family as his guests. His party theme was none other than "construction." The cake - "a road with cars on it." Once again I voted to attempt the challenge (Yes, that is a challenge for someone who is not a cake decorator! :-) and save the money, but I will spare the photo. Hee. Hee. It was at least tasty. (The icing was because I devoured a good bit of that.)
On January 25th, we found ourselves at Chuck E Cheese celebrating Seth's birthday. We were able to meet Troy there early in the afternoon which is a great time to avoid the noise and crowds. I groaned when we pulled in and saw three (Yes, I typed that correctly- 1-2-3!) daycare buses. Thankfully they left shortly after our arrival, so the day was still a success.

I am steadily rolling through this new decade as I reached 31 on the 29th. My birthday was a bit hectic since it was in the midst of preparing for Troy's recital, but he did send me the below pictured bouquet. My MIL was here and treated us to supper so I wouldn't have to cook. That always makes for a nice evening. I received some nice gifts and cash. Yippee. I am saving that for the mixer I mentioned earlier. I do believe there is a piano CD in someone's top right drawer. Hee. Hee. I hope to enjoy that soon when the very busy giver gets a memory jog when he opens the top right drawer. You know - the top right drawer of his dresser. The top right drawer that made me feel terrible when I shoved some papers in there and saw a piano CD. It's not like I spend my time browsing through top right drawers. Okay - you get my point. :-)
P.S. The spellcheck is not wokring agian! So, if youu see any typoes, pleasee excuse this tired woman who is not gettting alll the slep she should!

You are so hilarious!! But perhaps the piano CD is supposed to be your gift for V Day. Hope all is well and that you can get some much needed rest -- lots of love to all of you!

Martha, you crack me up! I wonder if anyone will think to look in the top right drawer now...

Hope your birthdays were happy. You gotta stay out of those "top right drawers"!

I have such a love/hate relationsip with Chuck E Cheese. Mostly hate.

If it weren't for the kids....

So...did the top right drawer get opened on V day?

January sounds as busy for you as August is for us. Dan, Mollie, and I have birthdays that month along with some close family members. I have a quick question for you. Have you read the book titled, "Ronald Reagan In Private" written by his executive assistant, Jim Kuhn? I know you're a huge fan and you might already have this. If not, I'll mail you a copy I picked up tonight at none other than the Dollar Tree! I was so excited! You were the first person that came to mind when I saw it.

Glad everyone had nice birthdays. Joan had told me how well Troy's recital went. I wish I could have seen it!

Julie, I do not have that book but would love a copy! Thanks for thinking of me. I am putting together a collection of books to give to Silas since he is named after RR.

Oh, yes, I do have the CD now! :-) And a rather nice one it is, too! Only problem - the CD player suddenly quit working. Maybe I need to look in the top right drawer for another player.
