Let the Birthday Month Begin!

YEA!!! I like nothing better than getting fun packages in the mail. Handwritten notes seem like a lost art (although I do love my email) but it still is a very fun thing to open up your mailbox to find a letter or package. Don't you think?
Today I got the new Pottery Barn Kids catalog (great to steal ideas from) my Chevron bill (smaller than expected so that was nice) and a package from Kathryn. Isn't that the cutest compact you have ever seen? I love it and it has already found a nice home in my make-up bag. Thank you Kathryn!!!

As for the Lauren update - my sweetheart is sick! She has that cough still and an ear infection. We are watching her carefully hoping this is not RSV. She threw up twice yesterday after her doctor's appointment and again this morning after her medication. But she has slept most of the day on and off and has kept down some Pedialyte and some formula in small doses. I was up until about 2 am with her last night (anyone seen the movie Kate and Leopold with Meg Ryan - yeah me too, this was viewing number ???) My kind father played with Greg today while Graham was at preschool so I could take a nap with Lauren to catch up on my sleep.

The boys are playing upstairs alone - which means I might have a gigantic mess on my hands later. At least it's quiet downstairs for now though!

Oh poor baby! My little Aliyah has gotten a yucky cold too! I just can't wait for it to get warm and get rid of all the sickness! Keep us updated!

Yuck. No fun Kristen. How sad...I can relate (as you well know).

So, when is the BIG day??? (Birthday MONTHS are the best). And you're right, there is nothing better than getting something fun in the mail.
