Birthday Update


We're having a great day!!! Kim and the girls let me sleep in this morning until almost 10:00 AM. Normally my alarm goes off at 5:15 AM. After a breakfast consisting of chocolate donuts that my girls picked out for me we went to the mall. A carousel ride, a walk through the Disney store and we were back on the road. On our way home we stopped at a couple of garage sales and got some clothes for the girls and some jars for canning. After lunch the girls took a nap and Kim and I got a little bit of quiet (and yet a little rowdy) time together. This afternoon was nice outside and the girls put their artistic skills to work to draw a picture of me in chalk. If this doesn't sound like your ideal birthday, I apologize. For me it was perfect!!! After all, what are birthdays for if not for showing the ones that we love that we truly KNOW them. This lazy day was a gift for me and I will treasure it. Thank you family for your love!!!

I was hoping to make it a little more eventful, but it sounds like we did great. I know that my heart is much fuller after the time together. - Frank Mommy

i have a great project you can do with chalk, salt, some jars and at least two small children...oh, and you need some shiskabob skewers!

put about 1/2 cup of salt each onto several plates

take your sidewalk chalk - different colors for each plate

roll each color chalk into each plate of chalk - this colors the salt - until the desired color

layer differing colors of the now colored salt into jars

take a skewer and push it down along the inside edge of the jars (you can also use decorative decanters) - this will create a spiky effect.

this was fun with mine a few years ago - annnnnnd, we still have many of their creations ALL OVER the cabin on shelves - be sure to put a tight fitting lid on the jars or decanters.

you can also add things to it such as sea shells and rocks.

glad you had the time of your life.

What does it mean when you say, "...and yet a little rowdy..." Can you explain what that means, exactly? Hehehe...

Daniel, he's not allowed to expand on that information (hee, hee) - Frank Mommy

Apparently that particular phrase must stand on its own. Suffice to say that I would strongly recommend it!!! :)

Husbands and wives need to "play" too. My Mother reminded me of that when my son was born... ;-}

That sounds like a great birthday. You're only as old you feel, so you must be about 12...
