My birthday

Today was my birthday. Of course it is after midnight now, so it is technically another day! lol
I got several packages in the mail this week from my different groups! It was so exciting! I am in a birthday eexchange in a couple of groups and it was nice to get cards, notes and little gifts from them!
So all in all it is a good day. I had to make my own cake of course, and ran out of time so I did not icing it yet. Maybe tomorrow.lol

Why do I like Snow???

I like snow because when I was a child, we had snow EVERY January. And Jan. is my birthday month so it usually ment I was out of school on my birthday! LOL
Now I like it because it is so pretty to watch fall on the grass and the trees. I love the quiet as it comes down and each flake more unique than the first.
Then of course I love snow because I can watch the kids go out and get totally wild and wet in it, snow angels, snowball fights...fun stuff. Then come inside and warm up with warm milk or cocoa!

Too bad we haven't had any this year :(

Well, This is my birthday month, and it is not starting off too hot. I think I have the flu!
I have been feverish all day long and feeling so bad. Still had to do the routine because the kids were 100% and going strong!!
I did not want to give it to dh so I stayed out of the room till he left for work.
I worked on exchanges last week. A bookmark and coaster exchange. I am almost finished with Juli's puffy for the Bokmark Exchange site.
