favorite day


this is my favorite day of every year, not just because it's my birthday, but because i share it with four special people, including my mom! so every december 14 is full of cross-country e-mails and phone calls and text messages to find out what the others are doing with their special day. so far it's been excellent! i slept in late and woke up to a big chocolate cake made by my husband and girls. even better was the chocolate smeared all over the girls' faces and seeing how excited they were to surprise me. birthdays are so magical to kids, and they're still magical to me, so in that sense i guess i just haven't grown up yet.

last day with the left hand, i think. my right doodledigit is nearly mended and will soon be ready for action! enjoy your day, all. i definitely will! :)

Wow, you and your Mom! I thought mine was special because I shared it with my sister but sharing it with a mother is double cool!

So sorry about your finger! I hadn't seen your post about it until tonight (why I didn't say anything yesterday). I can't believe how well you can draw with your left hand. You are quite the ambidextrous genius. Both with your hands, and both sides of your brain! Happy, happy birthday, and hope to see you tomorrow night (if I get myself into gear and can be let out for a night away from work)!

I know a lot of people complain about Christmas ... but when you have children it sure becomes magic. (just have to make sure they don't get seduced by plastic toys from China. I prefer wooden ones - and lego)

Happy Birthday! (a bit late.)

Alexandra Hedberg said...

... did you men you all have birthday at the same day? (sometimes I read a bit too fast)

Lucy said...

That is very cool to have the same birthday as your Mom!!! How strange but wonderful is that!

Happy Birthday!! I hope you had a great day!!
