Happy Birthday to ME!!



Well, this is going to be a quick one since I tried this earlier and had problems and now I have 3 kids here as well! I had a nice morning surprise today when Kyle woke up and the first thing he did was sing Happy Birthday to me! I couldn't believe he remembered on his own. He and George made me a card, but Kyle had to give it to me yesterday because he was so excited!

I managed to have a relaxing coffee and shower already this morning, so it's going well. I'm hoping to get a little scrapping in later on too! The Bachelor will be my guilty pleasure to watch tonight too! I sometimes tape it though too because of all the long commercials and boring bits! We'll see!

I have the three kids today. Kyle was supposed to go to school, but he's got a rather thick green stuff coming out of his nose (sorry for the visual!), so I don't think they'll want him. His disposition is good and he doesn't seem sick though, so I'm not sure what's going on. George and I are going to have a later dinner tonight and order take-out sushi after the kids go to bed. Tracy ordered it from here the other night to pick up on the way home and I was thinking about how long it'd been since I had it, so it's her fault! hee hee

Thanks to those of you that have sent e-mails, cards, online messages and called this morning already! Birthdays aren't celebrated the same way as you get older, but it's still nice to have them acknowledged!

Now, in some cultures, the person having the birthday does the giving, so I'm going to do a little of that myself today! For all those that leave a comment on my blog today, you'll get entered into a draw for a few little scrapbooking goodies (sorry for any of you that comment and don't scrap!). I'll do the draw tomorrow morning! Make sure to leave your e-mail if I don't know it already!

Have a fabulous day!
Cheers,
Colleen

Left a note on your other note earlier this morning to wish you a happy birthday but wanted to add that I think it's really sweet of you to be giving a gift to someone else. I have a friend that sends his Mom and his mother-in-law flowers on his and his spouse's birthdays to thank them for having them. I can't do that because both have already passed away but I can take a tip from you and give someone else a present instead. TFS
