It's My Party And I'll Cry If I Want Too!

OK, have you ever felt that way on your birthday? Seriously! I have! Having a December birthday so close to Christmas SUCKS sometimes!

BUT~ Not this year! My family actually remembered! Rachelle got up early and took the lil ones. I got to sleep in! She and Hannah picked up the house and Hannah made a homemade card and made sure everyone signed it!
I got may hair done and then Tony and I went out to dinner to my fav restaurant the Fish Market. It was such a nice day!
No one forgot and everyone went out of their way to be kind and make sure I had a good day!
So to my family~ Thanks for making it a great day! It was fantastic!

Oh.. and Tony? He is ON this year! Not only has he gotten me presents for Christmas this year he did it all by himself. No help from me. And he says the gifts are fantastic! No last minute trips to CVS to buy me crap I don't like cause he didn't bother to buy me anything until 11 pm on the 24Th! I told him over and over it is the thought of the gift.. you actually looking for something I would love. The time and the thought!Let's me know you care! And he has finally gotten it! I am so proud of him! And~It only took me 11 years to train him! Dang I'm good!
Way to go Tony!!

haha ha about the midnight xmas eve CVS runs...my dh runs to walmart. I feel the same way-don't bother if you're just running out to get me something...ANYTHING. Id rather ya not! Same with V-day, anniversary, day or what have you.

Happy birthday to you! It's always nice when the kids behave and pick up. That's all I want for xmas!

Love it! I hate birthdays. I always set my expectations so high -- you know, the kids doing their jobs on their own without me nagging, no fighting, peace on earth and all that -- and it just doesn't happen! So, enjoy it while it lasts!

Happy Birthday!! I'm so glad your family remembered and treated you so nice. My family forgot. My birthday was not great but that's partly because my husband got really sick the night before with Strep and I had my 4 yr old's birthday party that day. Ooh fun.

Happy Birthday! I am so glad your family realizes how lucky they are to have you and treat you nicely on your birthday. Mine never understand. I usually end up screaming,"be nice to me, it's my birthday!" Lovely. And I have to tell Wendell it is NOT the thought that counts! You have to do more than "think" about getting me something;)

Happy Birthday and Happy Holidays! I hope you had a wonderful day!


I am so glad that they took good care of you. I love being treated special on my birthday. I always feel unappreciated when nobody bothers to do anything nice for me. I have been so worried to have this baby before Christmas, just because I want his birthday to be something special. Thank goodness we made it!
