Happy Birthday

So, it's snowed in Alabama about three times in my entire lifetime and now it's snowed twice in two years. Must be all of that global warming they keep talking about. :-) And it's memorable because today is my birthday! Yea for me!

The Husband has been harassing me for several weeks about what to get me for the big occasion of turning 39, and all I could come up with was, "How about a day in bed?" He was REALLY enthusiastic about that suggestion until he realized that meant that I wanted him to take the kids away so that I could spend the day sleeping, reading, watching movies on Lifetime, and eating chocolate. I'm not sure that's what he had in mind exactly. :-)

We are tearing it up this morning in the yard with our favorite Bonus Child in tow. (Hannah--hint, she's the blond one). We went to sleep shrugging our shoulders and rolling our eyes when the weather dude said that it was going to be 3-5 inches and then woke up to a white, white world. (Incidentally, why do the weathermen south of Tennessee act like aliens have landed 30 miles east of Atlanta or something. Craziness.

Of course, we geared up in our Alabama Snow Clothes. This means that we had on pajamas under sweats, two pairs of socks, hats, and socks for gloves. (Hey now, those socks dry up quickly in the dryer.) The kids were cold and wet and tired after about 30 minutes, and in we came for hot chocolate and breakfast. Now, they are back at it, running around the house like a bunch of lunatics. (That part isn't unusual--that's a regular day around here.)

Happy Birthday to you!! I guess you had to take a rain check (snow check?) on that day in bed. :)
