Wow...Yesterday was incredible. From the homemade cards I got from the kids and Hubby, to Ice Cream at my mother-in-laws, to all the birthday wishes I got from my bloggy friends. We also got to decorate our Christmas tree which is always a special time. I have to say that it was one of the BEST and most special Birthdays I have ever had. Thank you again, for making my birthday wish come true!
Today is a happy/sad day for me because my oldest is turning 17 today. He will be getting his drivers license and begining a new chapter of his life. We are picking him up after school and bringing him here for dinner, gifts and ice cream cake. I still cant believe my first baby is getting so old.
On another note I have to tell you about the train. Yes, the train. My Hubby and kids are all train freaks. We spend vacations going to ride trains and look at trains. We have trains in every room....Thomas trains, train pillows, train ornament, train cups....you get the hint. But Christmas time takes it to new level. Hubby puts up the train table....and sets up one of the many train sets he has. I love to see how happy those trains make him and the boys. Seeing the joy in their faces is enough to make me forget the one thing I hate the most....listening to the trains on the track. It is the loudest, most annoying sound. You can't hear yourself think. So the entire month of December I will spend in a loud fog of train sounds. I really need to ask for ear plugs for my next birthday....just so I can prepare for the month long deafness that the train will bring.
I hope everyone has a great Monday!
