Happy Birthday to ME!

OK, I am two days late writing about my birthday - as it is on the 12th.
However, I wanted to post how great my birthday was.
I can't remember the last time I had a good birthday. Normally they are just the same ole day and somewhat dissapointing. I guess I usually set my standards to high!
Monday Harrison woke up early so I went downstairs with him.
I soon hear little footsteps coming down the stairs -
"Happy Birthday Mamma!" Julia had the biggest grin on her face.
She then gave me a big birthday hug and proceeded to bring three presents down stairs one at a time. She was so proud of each one.
We spent the rest of the day going to Toys R Us and the mall to let the kids look at toys they might want for Christmas. We all had fun shopping and playing with toys. Julia has definitely picked her three things she wants for Christmas. I know she is getting at least two of them, the third is up for debate.
Harrison played with several things, but hasn't told us what he wants - besides a bag of pacifiers! So, he is going to get what we want him to get! I think he will have a stronger opinion next year.
So, why was it a good birthday???? It was fun being with my family. I got presents for the first time in about 5 years or more! I think the biggest thing was the excitement Julia had for my birthday. She was happy for me and talked about my birthday all day.
So here is a quick photo of me on my birthday. By the way, I am getting old. Aghhh!
If you are wondering what my gift was - maybe you can tell by the photo - Paul bought me a hair straightener. I love it!

Two little Indians

Julia had a Thanksgiving lunch at her school. They made Indian Head Dresses...
She had a great time. Her PawPaw suprised her and came with us.
They are so cute!
