Two down, one to go...

Mom's birthday, and today is mine, one more birthday girl for this month.

Mark and the girls put together Lemon Bread pullaparts last night, we baked them this morning. It was kind of funny, though frustrating... the house was filled with smoke, as the angel food cake pans used to bake the bread tend to leak sugary juices in the oven. Three pans made, one bundt and two angel food (removable insert) pans, one for my work, one for Mark's work, and one for home... and then I didn't get the oven cleaner turned on this afternoon. Will have to plan to do it when we'll be away, because it basically burns it all away.... yep, stinky...

I took it in to work, though my coworkers didn't seem too excited. It was really yummy to me however, so it doesn't really matter!! Thanks family!

Mark & the kids also got me a sport cover for my new HD Zune - so I can clip it my belt, or it has an armband as well. It will make it easier for me to take on walks or rides, so that I don't have to just put it in my pocket. Yeay! At least it is getting warmer, so I can ride more... just have to get the motivation going again.

I love all the Facebook birthday wishes! I really enjoy being in touch with so many people from all stages of my life! Probably my oldest friend (longest, not age oldest) is my 2nd grade teacher Kris! I've mentioned her here before. We moved to Vernal Utah from Magna, where I knew her. Then I've had wishes from friends in Vernal, then Evanston - high school friends, then Laramie college friends. Mission friends from England = got called a bonnie lass by Steve Cain from Jarrow . Lol ! Of course friends from Arizona, Oregon, and also several of my online friends from RTVW *waves* most of whom I've never met or spoken to! They are mostly the reason I have a blog!

I feel very blessed today - thankful for my life - it's not the best ever, but I'm trying to make the most of what I have.

I asked Mallory yesterday - "Do you know how much I love you?" She said... "more than anyone else..." which is so true. I'm glad she knew that. Sometimes, oftentimes, my kids are grumpy and don't get along, don't always speak politely... but I'm glad above all, that she knew that.

My birthday is coming up in a few weeks and Jon was asking me what I want. I told him that a Bosch was definitely high on the list because then Amy would come and teach me how to make bread. Jon said that it would be totally worth it then.

I hope that you had a good day. Monkey bread sounds fabulous. Happy Birthday from everyone over here! We all love you!

Happy birthday, Amy!

I hope you opened your e-mail today as well. I sent my wishes there as I'm to technology un-gifted, to have Facebook. It sounds like you had a good one.
Happy B-Day once again!
Love you,
Lisa R.

Yes, Amy would definitely come and teach you how to make bread... :-)

And Yes Lisa, I got your email... and thanks Paul for the Bday wishes!

I'm late with the birthday wishes. Hope it was a stupendous one--well, except for the smoke filled house.

Your kids are lucky to have you--you who loves them more than anyone else.
