  • What I said before

the BIG 4-0…

plus six….hehehe.

OK so today Richard is finally the same age as me…less 34 days.  He can not call me old lady till next January 11th when I am his old lady for 34 days! He takes great pleasure in that 34 days and every opportunity to call me old lady. Ha time is up!

We had homemade rice pancakes this morning…(cooked rice, onion, salt, pepper and eggs mixed together and cooked in butter PAM) with warmed sliced ham served with apple sauce. It was most satisfying..the boys were not too hip but dad loved it and that is what counts. The boys ended up with frosted mini wheat’s after trying the rice pancakes.  GO figure.  After Sunday School the boys (all three of them) went swimming at the local pool.  It is obviously, indoors, and for any sized family to swim from 11:30 – 1:00 is six bucks. The water is a very balmy 82° plus and the boys don’t get cold…even the big boy (dad), and  that is saying something he usually is cold after five minutes in the water. Then it was out for lunch and home for the afternoon.

He loved his gift from the boys…two movies he has been wanting: Stargate SG-1 and Narnia Prince Caspian. They each made him a card too full of sea creatures. For dinner he chose to stay home and I am making Porkchops and apple cole slaw. (Can’t link it but it is of course Rachael Ray.) His cake was made yesterday by the boys and I with our expert baking hands and the cake smells out of this world.  The boys can not grasp why dad would want a cake that doesn’t have frosting, just a dusting of powdered sugar!!! Go figure.  We will have some friends over for cake later on this afternoon or evening.  So that will be the extent of the ‘party’. Just one more thing the boys can not understand, why parents don’t have big blow out parties.

I also have a very good friend celebrating her birthday today.  Votemom stand up and take a bow…I know your 40 + something but I won’t tell a soul. **wink wink** Happy Birthday friend…and many, many more to come. Us old moms to toddlers have to stick together…maybe a club formation is in order…hmmm.  I hope your day is filled with fun memories and the love of your friends and family.I wish for you a healthy and carefree year ahead.

Tomorrow…pictures of Griffins writing and spelling on the big white board.  The kid wants to write and spell everything!! He cracks me up.
