What I did today.

Today is my birthday. I took the children out for breakfast to my favorite diner, (Jennie's) where I spent many of my younger years!  I always feel younger in there because that place has a way of transporting me back in time!  It hasn't changed much in twenty years.

Today I did what I do most days, 
just with a little more meaning:


Wrote cards:

Played games with the kiddos:

And decorated for Christmastime:

It was the perfect day and I couldn't ask for more
except for about 29 more weeks for Lovie to grow and form.......  :)

"For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
