Wooohoooo! It's Crazy People Having A Good Time




It's been a busy week.

I'm still here, but REALLY HERE.

With my family.

Today is our oldest son's, DDG's*, birthday. He is 16.

Thursday was Baby E's day. He was 9.

The house is a beautiful shambles of torn giftwrap, barely hanging streamers, spilled orange soda, and piled up presents.

That's the visual bouquet.

The noise? Of three boys?

Sheer heaven.

We'll see you soon!

  29. Thank you, all of you, for stopping by and wishing my boys a wonderful birthday.

    I am enjoying celebrating them.

    Have a great week, and take care...try to stay out of the way of crazy martha stewart's tweets. She's lost her mind with all the "eggxtra special" and "eggxcellent egg salad."

    Completely lost her mind.
