Happy Birthday To ME! (and you). (but mostly me).

Birthdays are kind of a big deal in our home. I mean, we are all very happy that each of us was born, so of COURSE they are a big deal. It has become a tradition to start the day off with donuts. (and breakfast sandwiches for Mom & Dad). This was Stephen's first birthday donut. I get the feeling he likes the way we celebrate.

“The more you praise and celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate.”

~Oprah

Ok, so I want to win because hubby needs a new pair of shoes for work. His actually have a hole in the side and yet he still insists that they're fine. They. Are. Not. Fine! Anyway, he doesn't want to spend any money, so gift card would eliminate that excuse.

Also:

Happy Birthday! May your next year be full of happiness and prosperity.

Also:

WOOT WOOT!!! :)
