to me!! Yippee, today is my birthday. Every year my friend Marie and I celebrate our birthdays together. Her birthday is December 2nd. So we go out for the day, go shopping, out to eat, and just have a blast. It is so hard for us to get away from the daily life that we started doing this about 10 years ago and its been wonderful. We start at 7:00 am and usually don't get home till late at night. We pick someplace to go, we still have not decided about tomorrow but I am thinking we may drive to Manchester, Vermont. We don't exchange birthday gifts, we just spend the day with each other and thats all the gift we need. We do exchange Christmas gifts and thats a whole other fun day together. I know Marie has been especially looking forward to tomorrow. She lost her mom last Christmas day to cancer and its been a rough year for her and her children. They really miss Connie. She was such a great lady. I miss her too. I am sure she is smiling down at us happy that we are going to have our much needed girls day out.
I have been meaning to post this picture. This is an ornament I received from Margaret in the Prairie School Ezboard Ornie swap. Isn't it pretty? I love them Santas. This one is from one of their newest charts.
