Happy Birthday to Me!
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!
