..... someone who makes me laugh every time I talk to her. She is also up there on the list of friends I have known FOREVER (well, 24 years to be exact). That is my friend, Debi (who moved back to Ohio so I don't get to see her very often). Now I don't usually do a big post for all of my friend's birthdays...just every now and then or maybe if it's a big one. BUT....back in October I posted this Happy Birthday post for Beth. Well, I immediately got a phone call from Debi....saying that SHE wanted her own post on her birthday too. And she has reminded me no less than 10 times since.
So Debi....this is your Happy Birthday post and here is your gift of laughter: bulletin board duck, visiting Aunt Mert in the nursing home, "Oh $hit...he's home", me sitting in the rocking chair at CC firing off questions to you, your sister telling me how cute my "granddaughter" is, "BITCH", homemade painted clothes for Shan and Jen, me trying to make you "remember" people from the past, and of course we can never forget........"EWWWWW" (Jeremy).
Happy Birthday, Debi! Love ya!!

A rare peaceful sibling moment!
See it didn't last long. Addi said ..."pick this one" and....
Drew said, "No, pick this one". "Or this one!!".
Making sure it passes the smell test!
We finally found the perfect tree! TIMBER!!!
Gotta haul it to the car!
And off we go!

They have started a challenge to take a picture of your child every day and post all of their Christmas attire! We don't have enough actual Christmas clothes to last the whole time but if you add in winter: snowflakes, snowmen, penguins, etc.......we are totally in!
I have posted a little slide show at the top of my blog which I will "try" to update as much as possible to add her newest outfits! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Large Marshmallows (1 for each hat)
Fudge Stripe Cookies
Directions:Place striped cookies about 1 inch apart on waxed paper and set aside.In a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, melt chocolate chips at 3 second intervals until soft and runny. Using a wooden skewer, insert into one marshmallow and dip into melted chocolate to cover top and sides of marshmallow and a little around the bottom to act as glue when placed on the cookie. Using a toothpick on the top of the marshmallow, wriggle over the cookie until chocolate-covered marshmallow is sitting on top of the cookie. Use same toothpick to smooth chocolate over area if a hole shows when toothpick is removed. Place cookies in the refrigerator until the chocolate is hardened, usually about one hour.Using yellow frosting, pipe buckles onto the hats.

This was the look she had on her face the entire time. I really need to have a chat with the dance teacher so I can figure out how to do this at home!! Wonder if it would work on Drew too (who is not "spirited" at all)???

When we arrived, we got the pleasure of meeting Lucy. She was so cute! Drew had picked out a book so he started reading to her. As soon as he did, Lucy promptly yawned, laid her head down and was fast asleep. It was so funny! The handler kept trying to wake her up but she wasn't having it......
