Happy B-Day To Me!

It's birthday month at our house, with three out of four of us within two weeks of each other. In addition, Charlie's niece's birthday is the same day as his, his mom's is the day after, Father's Day is usually the same week, and another niece is later in the month. (I just learned something vital with spellcheck: I have apparently been spelling "niece" incorrectly my whole life).

Anyway, our month is full, especially when we're in the States. So yesterday was my birthday, tomorrow is Charlie's, and Thomas' was last week. I ordered a cake for my and Charlie's birthdays and we enjoyed it thoroughly this evening.

This is my very first video, taken on my very first digital camera. It is short...as in, "what was that? was someone singing?", but it's my son, and Charlie was sure that at least our moms would love to watch it. I myself am pretty excited about getting this far with downloading it to the correct website (I hope?). So here goes...



What service, he sings AND blows out your candle. Be ready for more videos now that I'm a pro.

My birthday was great! I got a special strawberry tart and donuts for breakfast, which was especially deserved since I spent the first part of the week in bed with a stomach flu. Now I'm better and ready for food. At the end of a wonderful day my husband even bought me TWO girl movies and WATCHED one with me...it doesn't get better than that.

Incidentally, if you spent any of your life in the 80's you should watch Music and Lyrics. It's definitely light-hearted and entertaining, with an amusing look at a couple different types of music. Plus, Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore! Perfect!

Happy Birthday to You!

I sent you an e-mail greeting yesterday, but am not positive it actually got to you.
Would you be so kind as to verify receipt of said missive? Thank you, my dear. --- On my way to purchase a plentitude of British tomes writ for smallish tots...
Love,
Audrey

Your greeting was received with humble gratitude and deepest appreciation. Many thanks for the touching photo of myself and my luminous god-daughter. What a delight it was to peruse the image and contemplate her first days on this spherical planet we call home.

Happy birthday to you, sounds like you had an extraordinary day!! For some random reason I couldn't get the video to play, but the picture looks cute. Sorry to hear you weren't feeling really good, but glad to know you are better. What a busy month for your little family with all the celebrations. But what fun with all the cake to eat!! Thinking of all of you, love Dave, Alisha and Aubrey

Hi Sweetie, I'm glad you are feeling better and glad you had a nice birthday. I sent a email birthday card too. Let me know if you got it. Also, I can't get your video to play either. It's the cutest little picture though. Happy day to you all.

Happy Birthday to you and your family!! So many June birthdays! Sounds like you had a wonderful day and I am glad you are feeling better, stomach flu is no fun.

I am afraid we will have to add another nephew to the big June birthday month (we are predicting the 22nd or 23rd)....unless he decides to wait til July, in which case this mommy won't be very happy. :)

Love you all, thanks for the updates! I couldn't get the video to work either, but I will try again later.
