Happy Birthday to Me



I've been hiding. Have you noticed?

Behind a BIG slice of worm pie. It has other names. Like "Grandma's Surprise" and other names that might turn your family-friendly internet filter on that I won't mention here, comparing it to things best left unmentioned on a family-friendly blog.

It's delicious. And it was mostly mine. I'm not apologizing for eating more of it than almost anyone else at Christmas.

It's my birthday month, after all.

My mother-in-law, God bless her soul for making me that dessert, stuck my candle in the last slice of worm pie (named thus after the chocolate shavings on the top). They sang me a happy birthday song... and I ate every tiny last bite of it.

Chocolate pudding and whip cream bliss. In a snowflake bowl.

And tonight there will be Mexican food.

I'm getting too fat for anything but head shots. So my daughter took this nice head shot of me eating my wonderful worm pie. I look better in bokeh.

I hope you'll be here when I decide to come back. Right now the holidays are still keeping me in a whirlwind crazy state...

... but definitely WELL FED.

Crazy and fat. I'm sure there will be New Years Resolutions to follow.

Thank goodness we really AREN"T what we eat!

Happy Birthday, Heather! My youngest daughter said recently, "Oh, mommy, your growing up too fast for me!"

For your b-day I would like to e-mail you a picture you can use for whatever you like! Do you prefer a flower or a snow scene?

Happy Birthday, Heather!

I'm feeling a bit "puffy" myself lately. :D I fear that my New Year's resolutions are going to require something ugly like, "no more McDs sweet tea" or worse, "back away from the butter."

I am glad you described the pie, because I couldn't get past worms in a bowl! Ewwwww...

Your daughter is an excellent photographer!

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. ;)

Michelle: A snow scene would be nice - since we don't get much of that sort of novelty around here.

I need to not only back away from ANYTHING McD's, I need to get off of cokes and fries and burgers all together. This will be my hardest resolution yet.
