Birthday Fun

Marc is officially my age again and boy am I happy about that. He is four months younger than I and for those four months he never stops rubbing it in. He turned 40 something :) on Friday.

After the DD woke from their nap, Justin and Judy came by to bring Marc his gift (two very handsome shirts) and helped us to partake in cake and celebration.

Marc holds up one of the shirts that J & J gave to him

C'mon Daddy; you can blow them out, it's easy!! (Marc loves Strawberry Shortcake)

Eating our cake and enjoying each other's company (Ethan is behind the Chef's hat)


Then I took out the birthday boy and our friends, Shannon and Alan out to a fun meal at the melting pot....yummy! A huge thanks to my mom who came over to watch the DD.

Our wonderful friends (Shannon and Uncle Al)

Me and my Birthday Boy

Forever friends

What's this?? Could it be what it looks like?? No, it was just cuff links for Marc...phew!! Shannon and I were a little worried. What will these two do next?

Update on Katie Starr

Katie is doing much better. She is still on the nebulizer machine and will be through Tuesday but she is feeling good. This was such a fast moving bronchial infection; quite scary how fast it hit her. She was not at all happy about taking her breathing treatments to say the least. I finally resorted to a little bribery (M & Ms) hey, you gotta do what you gotta do to get the job done!! That seemed to help her look at it a bit differently and after that she was just fine about taking them.

Happy Birthday Marc! Glad it was a happy one. M&M's are not bribery- they are a paycheck to a 3 year old. Just be glad that Katie Starr will be paid with M&M's - when we thought Moose had a UTI- she would not go potty for any amount of chocolate/lollipop/or any other food item.
Glad to hear she is feeling better.

Happy birthday Marc!
Glad to hear that Katie Starr is doing better (scary stuff) and also that Ethan is happier with school. I would have felt the same way you did -- there is no one in the world who will do as good a job as you in looking out for your sweeties. And any concerns you have are 100% valid!

Happy Birthday Marc! I hope you enjoyed your very special celebration. The Melting Pot & strawberry shortcake!? You're a guy after my own heart. (BTW, I'm a month younger than David & drive him bonkers from his day till mine. Great minds. . . )

Glad to hear that Katie Starr is doing better with her breathing treatments. She's luckier than I am. Right after my treatments, there are more meds not M & Ms. I may have to rethink what I'm doing here.

M&Ms fix everything.

Happy birthday Marc!!! Sorry I am late, but I had no access the last few weeks out in the boonies.
Hope your birthday wishes came true!
