    Woke up this morning for the 7th anniversary of my 29th birthday :nono:

    Started to get up and I heard the girls up....11yo was headed out to the barn to do MY morning chores, 5yo went to potty but went back to bed :shrug:
    Then 12yo son is up rather early....(I found out later that she was told to stay in her room until her breakfast was ready)

    I had to wonder what was going on....the coffee pot started to drip...(I was still hiding in my warm bed), 11yo comes in from the barn and says " you cook the eggs and I'll make toast and feed 5yo" Next thing I know I have a cup of coffee, eggs are cooking, toaster is toasting....finish my coffee and then had breakfast in bed...2 eggs over-easy, 2 buttered toast, AND a folded napkin! Oh and a refill on the coffee. :) And a homemade card to boot!

    Happy Birthday to me! :cool:

    What wonderful children! I'll bet they cleaned up behind themselves, too, didn't they. What a great way to start your birthday.

    (by the way, I fudge on my age too-25 with 13 years of experience!!!)

    My kids do stuff like this -- I don't have the heart to tell them that I hate eating in bed :)

    Happy birthday, mpillow!

    Oh my it only got better!

    My sister made it for lunch, stayed for a couple hours, BROUGHT me a CAKE!!!! and a card and we had a NICE visit and HUGS!!! when she left :)

    Then my husband came home with a SEAFOOD PLATTER--scallops, shrimp,clams, haddock.... Its been over a year and maybe 2 since I've had seafood!....it was excellent. And since he's been grumpy lately with his injury...
    Maybe a bit of a peace offering! :p

    Probably my BEST birthday EVER! :cool:

    My mom, dad and other sister and oldest brother all called during lunch visit so we all got to chat (and remind ill sister to take care of herself and let us help her).

    My neighbor friend even called JUST for my birthday---not to see if I wanted to watch her kids!
