Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy Birthday!

My favorite part about my birthday is the good excuse it gives me to do something for my mother. Since I was 16, every year I've made it a point to do something for her on my birthday. She's the one who did all the work getting me here! I also like to do things for my other family members. This year I'm giving a gift to each of them. The gifts range from MP3 players to books to stuffed animals. Mother's will be a new pair of Skecher's Shape Ups! For my father's gift, I had a hard time choosing between this Water Wheel Table Fountain and this Spinning Ball Table Fountain. I personally liked the Water Wheel one better, but I settled with the Spinning Ball one since it looks more like something you could, you know, drive your Jeep on. :D He loves natural fountains. That one looked much more natural to me.

I've wondered before, why exactly my birthday would happen to fall right in the dead of the winter. Maybe it's so I can have a little spark of sunshine during the cold months. My parents, especially my father, were thrilled to have me as a "tax deduction baby" and the last baby of the year in my area. :) Anyway, so I'm having a happy birthday being so thankful for my parents and wish you all a Happy New Year!

Remember those pansies I told you about last week? Well, look at them now:

This is our first snowfall of the year, if I remember correctly. Since my friend thinks snow is just the greatest, I won't comment on how I feel about it. ;)

It's Been Raining...

And raining, and RAINING!

I was glad for these pansies that came to brighten my day. It has been raining for a LONG time now. I don't even know how long it's been. All I know is that it hurts, but we need it! Here in the desert, we don't get rain like this hardly ever. I'm surprised it's not snowing. I took this picture from my window. I don't care to be out in the cold. :P Anyway, how's life for everyone? :)

Missing My Morning Glories

I don't know how anyone else is feeling, but I'm missing my morning glories. They were SO lovely. The old dead vines just got torn down. Here are some pictures from a few months past. I think you'll agree that these were BEAUTIFUL!

I love how they get a little star on them and the center almost glows.

They are bigger than you'd think.

So while I'm feeling rough with the cold getting to every joint in my body, I can rest with this's springtime somewhere! :D
