Yes today is the twin’s 5th birthday! The day was all about them but very low-key. We gave them grandma and grandpa’s gifts. Micky got a tea set and JoJo got Star Wars light sabers. Both loved their gifts and that kept them all busy most of the day. Micky also got a TinkerBell rug for her room. Then we set out and bought them a birthday cake AND birthday cupcakes for their party on Wednesday. Lots of sweets for them. They still are not feeling great and have these bad coughs so they were a bit out of sorts. We took some time this afternoon to go outside and take some five year old pictures. They really are getting big so quickly. I tried to make it as special as possible despite the limited resources. They both said they had a good day. And tomorrow we may try to see Happy Feet if we get enough time. The kids and I need to get out of this house and have some real fun.
Tomorrow I am having the guy I work with come over and look at the plumbing in the small bathroom. Pete and I got the vanity in but one thing we are not is plumbers. I am keeping my fingers crossed he can get that sink going and I can get that bathroom back together. And one other big thing happened today…..YaHoo the painting is done! Our painter completed all the painting today and we love it. He did a fine job so if anyone is looking for a great painter I have a referral. We stayed around the house today and I put a few more things away. If we get that small bathroom back together we are looking pretty good. That is progress in my eyes.
Did I mention I scrapbooked two layouts last night. Woohoo! And…another one of my layouts was picked up for publication. I may be a bit irritable today but all these things made me happy. And on a final note……….HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO my friend and a special person to the twins………CINDY!
