I find as we get older - birthdays are not such a much. I love the calls and emails and LOL at all of the facebook Happy Birthdays. Best of all was my 8 year old making dessert tonight. She made little cakes in her easy bake oven. It took a while but it was great. It's those small things that we realize are most important. I feel young, that's what counts.
Our construction on the house continues, with the added surprise of very old termite damage under the siding. It was pretty amazing- those little bugs ate through lots. As out builder said "they have to eat too". Just with it wasn't my house. Fortunately they are long gone, leaving us with the cleanup.
