WAS THIS..................... Otherwise, it was the best birthday ever!! Thanks to all of you.
Love, bumma (hey it's my birthday, I can be bumma if I want to)


While I have to admit that birthday's usually make me feel exactly like this....

I wish I could feel sort of like this.....

or maybe even this..............

The birthday dinner we had at Red Robin, was lots of fun, but not nearly as exciting as the happenings at my house BEFORE we went to dinner.

Can you say SURPRISE????????????????

I always knew I had the GREATEST kids in the world, but now I have proof! I took Briqelle and Cali to the movie "Bedtime Stories" (definitely wait for "Redbox") on my birthday (don't even ask the age question) When we returned home, my wonderful kids suprised me with this......................
A NEW WASHER!! How great is that!


Cali was helping me fix breakfast and says "bumma, oops, I called you bumma" and giggles. I said, well that's my name you call me bumma, she says, "No, that is my other grammas name" I said, "I want to be Bumma too." She shakes her head and says, "No, you are Gramma Maggie," my other bumma is bumma.
So I don't get to be bumma. Waaa....

Never thought I'd actually do a blog, and will warn you in advance, that the updates will be few and far between. Mostly because I have such a (yawn) exciting life. This is further evidenced by the pictures you don't see posted. I haven't figured that part out yet.
