Another year older

It's my birthday today. It's my twin sister Kim's birthday today too. Happy birthday Kim! We are 36 today. That much closer to 40. BLEH! We had a really nice birthday dinner at my parents' over the weekend to celebrate 3 birthdays: mine, Kim's and my younger sister Jen's (she turned 30 exactly 2 weeks ago). Perfect photo op time and here are the results:

  8. He's a freaking nut ball. I've taught him to answer "goofball" when I say "What are you?" He's starting to say stuff back to us in exactly our same tones and intonations. To me, he said, "Bring that back, RIGHT NOW. Do you understand???" To Joe he says, "I said NO." thrusting his hands on his hips on No. It's pretty funny.

  9. Thanks cheryl! It was a nice relaxing weekend for a change. LOL!

    Nut ball indeed. Just like this 5 year old girl I know... ;)
