Photo Challenge-----Birthday

The Paper Mama

The Paper Mama is hosting a photo challenge with a theme of "Birthday".
So, I figured, why not!?
This picture is from Jaelyn's 3rd Birthday back in the Summer - we had a Mickey/Minnie theme and she got this adorable hat that says "It's My Birthday" with Mickey ears on it!
I just love her smile!

Hey! Don't forget to go check out my 365 Project - 1 picture a day! Whew!

And if you could spare a vote.. I'd love you forever!

2 Years / 2 Miracles

2 years ago today, my life was turned upside down around 7pm.
Jaelyn & Abbie were "delivered" to our front door with nothing but a pack of diapers, a bottle, a sippy cupy, a quart of milk and the clothes they were wearing.
As they looked as us with their big beautiful blue eyes, it was an instant connection.
My heart has never been so full.

Happy "Birth"day Jaelyn & Abbie!

Five Question Friday

Oh Friday, how I love thee! Let me count thy ways...

1 - off work for the next two days
2 - no real plans this weekend.. yay!
3 - tons of reading & relaxing planned
4 - celebrating our 'birthday' with the girls tomorrow
 - 2 years & 2 miracles!
6 - no scheduled lunch hour
7 - no aggravating  lovely people to deal with

Ok, thats enough for now!
On to some fun stuff...

My Little Life

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?
I really love the idea of giving to children. Especially children who are ill or
fighting a battle, so my choice would probably be Make A Wish foundation.

2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?
Here is the deal with snow days - if it gets me out of work
{9 times out of 10 it does not} they are a pain in the butt. If I get to stay
home, in my pjs, in front of the fire.. BRING THEM ON!!

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?
I wish I could knit. I know I could probably teach myself,
 and just maybe I might do that. But it would be great to just
wake up one day and be like.. Oh hey, I can totally knit!!

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?
I don't mind a mixed bag of all 3. I wouldn't say I'm a junkie but
I will watch the news, I will listen to our President
and I will pick up STAR magazine once in a while. Who can resist
knowing how Jesse James is making an ass of himself now, or
how much weight Oprah has lost this month? Come on now!

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)
I am coffee, diet soda, water, flavored ice-tea, shots, kahlua, girly drink kind of person.
Ya got that?
