Birthday wishes

So, today is a VERY important day at our house.  Today, my sweet little Nik turns 11 years old.  She has been SO excited all day.  Said it’s her “first palindrome” birthday, and for some reason, she’s very happy about that.  I’m coming up on a palindrome birthday myself this year, and somehow…….I’m not quite as happy about it as she is! 😉

Here is my sweet girl this morning before leaving for school.


She couldn’t contain herself, and burst into a little happy dance.


Sure wish I could get as excited about my birthday!

Right after school, Nik headed straight to her presents.



And one of my favorites of the day…..


Me and my sweet peanut!  I LOVE you, Nik!

And let’s not forget Pete!  He got a little something, too.  It’s sort of a tradition I started years ago to get a small present for the non-birthday child.  You can see that I hit a bullseye.



Carpet sliders………he’s thrilled.

Now, we’ve baked some brownies together, and soon will be heading out to dinner to continue the celebration.  Think it’s going to be greasy burgers and fries……or maybe even onion rings!  Yum-O!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
