Happy Birthday; Dear Amanda

You are my second born; but not second at heart!
(I love both of my daughters!)
I'm so proud of all you've accomplished and of your spirit.

I feel so blessed to be a part of your life!

Since I'm not there to bake you one; here is a guy who makes some observations about cake. ;0)

My other kids!

Okay; guys, time for pictures! Joey: stop screwin' around! Look sharp! Come on, Smudge! Can't you co-operate for just this once?

Here we go.

OWW! That's my leg!

Come back, Joey! Don't be mad, Mr. Kitteh-Kitteh. :)

Let's try some with 'Roo!

Better lay off of the margaritas!

There; that wasn't so bad, was it?

At least it's better than my last photo-op!

Oh, BTW; and OT...what is that warm and golden light reflecting off of the wall behind me??? It's making me squint! (We actually had a couple consecutive hours of SUNLIGHT!!! WOOT!!!)

It's almost over...

All I have to say on the eve of this historic event is:

Are we there yet???!!!

Dad; is that you?

I know, I know Steve Smith isn't my father! I am convinced that he must have had my Dad in mind when he created the character of Red Green. Who else would find so many uses for Duct Tape and K-Cars??!!!

Destined to be Together

I've finally found Teh One! We've been searching for each other since I can remember! I've had many. They have all touched my lips as I've tried in vain to capture the joy of the perfect union.

Last night I stumbled into Un-named Pricey Department Store; desperately seeking cosmic, cosmetic nirvana. There before me was the Estee Lauder counter. Surely mi amore' could be found there. I stepped closer, breathless with anticipation; trying not to notice my sweaty palms. I had been through this countless times; tantamount to a blind date, so much at stake! Did I dare hope???!!! Suddenly a host of celestial voices sang out in divine chorus, "AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!" Pigmentosus Procurosis! M 21 Soft Amethyst: ZOMG!11!!!! My precious!

Anyone that knows me can tell you that this a major,major feat! At any given time you could look into my purse and find AT LEAST a dozen different shades of liptint, stick, gloss, rouge; wev. A peek into my
"tackle box" will garner two or three dozen more, while the junk drawer in the vanity houses a myriad of them; all waiting for me to send them on to better homes with my daughters or friends who always look much better with them on than I ever could.

That is all forever changed now; and the best thing to come from that will be the freedom. From guilt over spending too much money on a ridiculous and frivolous obsession; I guess it's an improvement over the one I had over shoes! (OMG: Shoes!) Now I will have to find some other weirdness to dive head long into like--ramekins, salt-n-pepper sets, tea balls, herb books, Mom-Mom's house or some such!

Any suggestions?

To my First

My dear Michele;

You'll never know how much you have brought me. Little did I know that day, soooo long ago; (hee-hee) that warm little bundle of wonder and sweetness would give me some of the best moments life has to offer.

I know that this is a short message, but I'm also very aware of how precious your time is these days...Besides; I can't see the screen through my silly blubbing! lol

Thank you so much for allowing me the honor of being your Mommie.

Happy Birf-Day to Youooooooooo!
