The Easiest Birthday Ever!

My daughter turned 10 this weekend! Given that her birthday falls only days before Halloween, she was invited to a Halloween party on her birthday. At first she was disappointed, because she thought there was some cardinal rule about birthdays and that she couldn't go to the party because we would be monopolizing her time, but then after I assured her that since it was her birthday she got to decide what to do with her time. She choose party. Then it was a long drawn out drama as to what her costume should be. My lovely girl decided to go against the grain and make her costume (which I whole heartedly support) and transform herself into a troll the kind we had as kids where you rub them back and forth in your hands to make their hair crazy). That is her actual hair! There is a tennis ball under the ponytail to elevate it.
So my husband, parents and I dropped our kids off at the party and went out to dinner alone to celebrate her first decade of life. Now that is what I call easy birthday!

Feeling crappy today

Not feeling myself today. I've had a busy day of cleaning and preparing for my parent's visit. They are staying for 5 weeks! After a busy day of cleaning the attic, I know I am a psycho, doing laundry, even though my Mom is the Laundry Queen and will do a stitch of clothing anytime it is placed in the hamper God love her, and rearranging Bubba's room, I am pooped and I feel crappy. Sick to my stomach headache crappy.

So rather than bitch about how I feel I will share a cute picture of my little Bubba on Western Dress Up days last week.

And look how cute Bubba is :)

Bubba's picture turned out cute too. His hair looks a bit Frankenstein-ish, but the smile makes the picture gorgeous. Bubba is never one to dress up...add hair care products...keeping clean all morning (because the older you get the later your picture is taken)...and I must say I am very proud of his picture.

My daughter is almost 10!

Can you believe this gorgeous girl is this old??!!! When did she get to looking like a teen, anyway? My husband pulled out his wallet to add these pictures and unearthed all 5 previous school pictures...amazing!
