My Birthday. Where is the party?

"Where is the party going to be" my Big Guy asked me on the morning of my birthday. I couldn't get away with staying 29. My Big Guy insisted that I must be 30 now. I'm hoping he will forget and I can go back. I have been that age for 8 years and I am really comfortable with it.

I did get my chocolate cake after all. Hubby made it for me while I took a nap in the afternoon. Does it get any better than that?

We are constantly striving for better table manners in our home.

I reluctantly shared my chocolate cake with others. There is only one piece of cake left and I plan on having it this morning.

Presents were opened. My Aunt and Mother were very good to me. I really love looking at my new laminator that is on my kitchen counter. I need to use that thing...

Perhaps I could laminate one of my favorite cards:My friend said this looked just like me and my boys. I cant disagree with her except for the cat. Hubby is allergic so there better not be one in our house.

We went to the park to sweat.

This is the absolute closest I will ever get to having them all look at the camera at the same time. I might as well go ahead and order my Christmas cards today. Do you think Baby Girl will grow bigger in the next 4 months? My relatives in Alabama will never know.

We went to my favorite Pizza joint for dinner. Here is the Big Guy sipping a Sprite and waiting for the goods. I spent most of the time feeding Baby Girl. If food is not available, she is always happy to eat my Vera Bradley strap.

It was a good day. I hope all my future 30th birthdays are this happy.

LISA!!!!! Stop it...my bladder isn't what it used to be and I am about to pee my pants from your hilarious comments!

First of all, your husband rocks for allowing you to nap and then for making you a cake!!! That's award-worthy.

And I can't remember which line had me laughing harder:
1) We are constantly striving for better table manners in our home.
2)We went to the park to sweat.
3)Do you think Baby Girl will grow bigger in the next 4 months? My relatives in Alabama will never know....OR
4)If food is not available, she is always happy to eat my Vera Bradley strap.

I also LOVED that card your friend sent!

Your posts are always so funny, but this one really took the cake (I am better at puns, myself). ;)

I can't stop laughing at that card. I love it! If I ever find it in the store, I'll buy a bunch of them for every mother I know. Glad you got some chocolate cake and pizza. That's exactly what I would have wanted too! So you've been 29 for the past 8 years, which makes you what....29?

So funny, Lisa- I love it. And the picture of Baby girl at the end is so cute!!

You are so funny. Always. So. Funny.

I'm glad you had a great birthday. And I am really glad there is someone else who eats cake in the morning.

And-if I had my own laminator (SP?) nothing would be safe. I loved laminating when I taught school!

Glad you had a great day celebrating!! Great pics - I too love the comment about table manners. I actually think that licking one's cake is great manners...what else are you supposed to do with CHOCOLATE in front of your face like that? I would be ready to lick away too!

And, I love that card too. I have played hide and seek with my kids before and MAYBE counted to a lot more than 20 while they went and hid. (OK...I confess, I didn't even count. I just gave them a good 10 minutes to really find a great spot!). :-)
