I believe that a birthday is not just one day, but a whole week. People have to be nice to you the whole week. Well, hopefully people are nice just because it's good to be nice. But, for the the birthday week we have to be especially nice. That's what I use to say as a kid anyways. Being the youngest of 7 you can get teased a lot. So, I would use that as a way for my siblings to remember as a kid. "Hey be nice, it's my birthday week." It worked for the most part. So, having said that, if you didn't get a chance to call Stephen on his birthday, or e-mail him, or facebook, whichever it's not too late to tell him you love him and Happy Birthday!! For his Birthday I got him "Sherlock Holmes" the movie, and "Iron Man 2" and he loves them. We had a small party yesterday, not much, the usual: pizza, soda, cake, some fruit and veggies. Our friend Valerie who is about 4 or 5 months pregnant did something very pregnant and spread the hummus dip on her pizza. hmmm... i usually use it for sugar snap peas, but I'll have to try putting it on pizza. We had a good turnout, a total of 12-13 people (not including ourselves) that came. Luckily they all came in stages (because our apartment isn't huge) from 3:30-ish, and the last people left at like 8. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures, too busy socializing. Before the party Stephen and some friends went to a Utah Defensive League Pistol Match and had a blast. By the way it snowed yesterday. (These are pictures from our apartment window)
*sigh* That's one thing I hate about Utah. Winter and Summer tend to hog the other seasons. I'm the type of person that likes 4 very distinct seasons. I like them to start on time and end on time. Each season should get 3 months. Period. But what can ya do. James was sick again this last week. The usual, runny nose, sneezing, and coughing. Now I'm starting to feel a little tickle in my nasal passage as well. grrr. James learned some new words this week: hot, two, and okay. I'm glad he's starting to understand "hot" so that now I can use it to refer to something that can hurt him or is dangerous. "No" has pretty much lost meaning for him. BTW I made myself a spring skirt. See.
Have a good week!
