Well, you guys.

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and kind words. It was all very much appreciated over here.

The husband tried to secretly arrange for the families to come over for cake but 1.)Irish Whisper and 2.)My mother in law just doesn't get the 'surprise' part of surprise and she kept saying "So, we'll see you tonight" when I spoke to her earlier in the day.

I got some gift cards, some money, earrings and a wooden plaque that says "I Love Angels" with handpainted flowers. hearts and a winged angel. Yeah, I KNOW but it's from the girlie so it won't be going in the woodstove any time soon.

We have a baby turtle, quite possibly of the snapping variety, that's living in a big rubbermaid container on our kitchen counter. His shell is the size of a nickel. He's completely adorable and just went on his first car ride to the boy's school. We're thinking of raising him up as a pet and trying to train him not to snap. Oh, we aren't.

never heard of the Irish Whisper...

glad you had fun.

the Louise family LOVES turtles. Especially sea turtles. Hmm, maybe that's a new topic to blog about...

anyways, may you feel loved and blessed on your special week (I've been known to stretch it out so that it's almost "the birthday month") (hee.)

Awww I am so glad the family shared some birthday wishes with you.

Maybe those angels are a sign, eh?

As for the turtle, I bet he is cute, let's see a picture.

SL - We are turtle lovers too, although if it IS a snapper it will be set free in someone else's pond.

SP - Maybe I DO need help, when I read that the angels were a sign my first thought was "From who?!?"

Amy said...

Thus far I have escaped turtle ownership. I'm not quite sure how, but so far, so good. I'm just not much for pets that don't DO something. Now, a lop ear bunny? Oh yeah, I want one of THOSE!!

Glad you had a great birthday. Anything from the girlie is precious!

That would be the angel that prevents you from throwing them into the wood stove.

Your daughter!!!!!

Do I have to explain everything?

blackbird said...

Wow - he sounds awfully little, your turtle. Is it a boy?

jenny said...

Amy - it is most definitely NOT ownership, more like borrowship. He goes back to the wild tomorrow.

SP - A sign from an angel?? Wha?? I thought the angel was a sign from god...I am so confused.

BB- he is teeny tiny, will try to get a picture up...and I'll go with boy because I have absolutely NO idea.

SneakyPeek said...

At the risk of confusing you more, I'm going with, no further comment.

Baby Boy turtle, how cool! I'm very much into the baby boy thing right now, so I'll go with boy as well ;)
