Evil Lady Hand...

Okay, so I know it is slightly troubling that my four year old has a concept on evil but if you will...look past that and see the art here. She drew this and told me she named it 'Evil Lady Hand'. I was so impressed because it truly is an evil lady hand. I think she may have a talent here! Mona, I know you will back me on this. Don't be to alarmed though, becasue she is drawing babies as we speak. She is still innocent and sweet and precious.

Turning 36...

So, I turned 36 today. It really was not that big of a deal since for most of this last year I thought I was 36 anyway. I had a great day. My favorite part of my birthday every year is my birthday breakfast with my dad. This year was no exception. We had a wonderful breakfast at the Ramos House accompanied by wonderful conversation. What I know for sure is that my dad loves me.

While we were at breakfast my mom had my kiddos. I'm not sure how she did it in three hours but she cleaned my kitchen (including major stove work), did three loads of laundry (wash, dry & fold), made my bed, watered my plants, and bathed my children. I would be lucky to get all that done in a week. She is the mom of all moms. She just makes stuff happen. Oh, and she made some homemade almond milk. Amazing. What I know for sure is that my mom loves me.
I got an hour and a half massage at noon which was wonderful. I got phone calls singing happy birthday, text messages from my d-ship girls (I love you guys!), flowers from my family in Vegas and in Wyoming, and a beautiful salad bowl and tongs from my dear Wendy! Zoe gave me lots of kisses because she said she didn't want to waste time at the store. How precious! What I know for sure is that my friends and family love me.
I got a beautiful letter from my sister that made me cry and feel really special. What I know for sure is that my sister loves me.
My mom made dinner for me and my family and it was wonderful! Salmon Stack wrapped in parchment with capers, lemons, spinach and leeks...and don't forget the brown rice biscuits! The biscuits actually rocked. She was also thoughtful enough to get a pin the tail on the donkey game which was a big hit with the kids!

When it was all said and done, I felt loved at the end of the day and what more could you really want.

My little Rock Star!

I took this picture of us holding out the camera and had no idea he put on his ROCK STAR face. I love it!

I miss you!

All I have to say is that I MISS YOU!
