After breakfast I gave the kids a bath...which they absolutely LOVED because there was no time constraint on how long they could be in there for!! What a lovely wet mess they made too!!! I dressed DJ in a shirt that says My Mom Rules! And Samantha in the purple dress we got her from Hawaii...first time she wore it too!! Oh she looked SO cute!!!

Did you know I share a birthday with Richard Gere!!?!??!?!?! *sigh* It's a great to have been born!!! Thanks Mom for picking today...not that you really had a choice in the matter! In fact, I'm sure if you'd had your way, I would have been born a couple days earlier! She was in labour with me for 9 days!!! NINE DAYS PEOPLE!!!!! Having given birth twice now...I can NOT imagine 9 days of
torture labour!! So, thank you Mom!!!! I'm so glad you're my mom!!! Thank you for my birthday!

Lunch and nap for Samantha went rather well! They both ate like champs!!! And while Sam was sleeping DJ and I snuggled on the couch, drew a new picture, read a book, talked....just bonded really! He's SO funny sometimes!! I try to remember all the funny stuff he says, but some it is so preposterous...and it slips my mind! My age is catching up to me! hahaha

Howie came home from work late (he stopped to get me a card or two, which we haven't done in a while...cards that is...) and I was vacuuming when he came in the door. I know, housework ON your birthday should be banned!!! But I knew my g/f Jackie was coming over, and also my SIL, possibly her family too....so it had to be done!!! I also baked some birthday brownies that have NO calories!!! Imagine the millions I could make with that recipe!!!!

After dinner my g/f Jackie came by for a visit...and her gift just had my crackin up!!! Howie took the kids outside and she and I got a really good visit in!!! Mostly our visits are via Blackberry messenger, twitter, or facebook...so it was really nice to have some one-on-one time!
1997 Diana, Princess of Wales, dies in a car crash in Paris. Quite possibly the worst birthday EVER!!! How sad that was for me!!!
As Jackie left, the kiddos were coming back in with Howie and it was time to get ready for bed. Just after pj's were put on, my SIL showed up with an envelope and a treat for me. I haven't eaten it yet, as I told DJ I'd share it with him tomorrow when Sam's sleeping!! It's a mousse dessert in a chocolate cup with whipped cream and a strawberry! YUM!!!!!
I opened the envelope and out fell two tickets to Blake Shelton!!!!!! GAH!!!!!!!!! Not just that, they're in the TENTH row!!!!!!!!!!!!!! O M G!!!!!!!!!!!!
