Happy Birthday - Liz

I want to wish my niece, Liz, a very Happy Birthday! I hope she had a wonderful weekend with her family and a special day today. For those who don't know, I am going to be another Great Aunt because Liz and her husband are expecting their second child. The picture posted is of Katie's new play set. A couple of you wanted to see a picture of it. Today, Katie warmed up to it a little better. I think it was because our neighbor's grandson, Will, came over to visit and had to try it out. Well, Katie was right behind him and wanting to do everything Will did, including all the bad habits. Kids will be kids! Katie hated to see him leave and Will didn't want to go. He kept asking his Mom and Grandma if he could stay with us and eat Supper with us. I told him to come over another time (we didn't have enough to eat) and we would all have a picnic on the picnic table. He was all for that and knowing him, he won't forget it. He has a birthday in June and wanted us to make sure we were invited to it.

The house at the end of our street is for sale, which is only four houses down from us. I don't know what they are asking. I just hope whoever moves in will be good and descent neighbors. The neighbors before, I could hear them from my front porch cussing and screaming at one another. Loving bunch don't you agree?

I worked all day long with the front yard and cleaning the house. Would you believe I still have one more flower bed to clean out. Ugh!!!! When will it end?!? What possessed me to put in so many flower beds? I'll never know! I actually forgot this one. It's just a little one with monkey grass around one of Weeping Cherry Tree. It shouldn't take long to do, but my Aunt Sherry is in town and I wanted to hurry up and get all this done so I can visit with her. Her and her husband got in from FL this morning and are headed home TX. We, Mom, Sherry, Katie & I, are to have lunch tomorrow at Sweet Peppers. I love that restaurant.

I finally got to watch "The Nativity Story." I cried and cried. It touch me so much and I can't even fathom what it must have been like in those days. Can you imagine what the Sheppards, Joseph & Mary must have been thinking when the Angel of the Lord appeared to them? I probably would have fainted there on the spot. How they could have heard and understood what the Angel was saying. I would have been so frightened and wondering in my head - what is this Angel doing here, talking to me? I wouldn't be able to pay attention for all the noise in my head. I guess that's why I've never seen an Angel because God would know what I would do or say. tehe!

Take care and God Bless You!
