Can You Believe it?


It's my 50th Birthday today and it's been so crazy that I didn't even get to make the post I had planned, but, I have something big coming on the 22nd so be sure to check back in a couple days.

Remember my daughter who went to New Zealand for 4months? Well, she flew in late this afternoon and we picked her up at the airport and then went out to dinner at the Outback Restaurant. What a perfect birthday. I had every one of my kids together after four long months of separation. I sure missed my daughter.

Hope you're enjoying your holiday preparations.

Happy Birthday!
I know how it feels to have kids away. I'm waiting three daughters home for Christmas and are so looking forward to have them around for a few days.
Merry Christmas!

I just got my son home for the past three weeks too! They sent him home from his mission to have his tonsils out. He flies back out on Tues, Dec. 28th. I'm so happy for you to get her home! Have a merry Christmas.
