Waving Goodbye...FIRE HAZARD!

TO 38... YES PEOPLE, I am now 39-just one year left until THE BIG ONE! Why do I feel 29?

I had planned on writing a deep EMO post about my birth, birth mother, birth family, my adoption, adoptive parents aka "real parents" and the entire personal journey of my adoption for my birthday post but I'm just not ready yet! Maybe when I'm 40.

The Captain was away for my birthday on the 26th. He got home last night. He is always SO thoughtful. He got each little their own gift to give me. Which included chapstick, flip flops, a loofah, gum, mints & a praise and worship CD.
Then he took us all out to SONIC for some yummy fattening burgers, onion rings and my fave DIET CRANBERRY LIMEADE! Me & the six littles at SONIC!
GUESS WHERE THIS BIG POOF of smoke came from???The Captain insists on putting the actual number of candles in my cake every year. I prefer a big 3 and a big 9. I made a GREAT WISH! The cheesecake was YUMMY!After the cake, it was time to check out the wheat to see if it's ready for harvest. So, The Captain has the kids do the "wheat gum chew test" (YES, he made it up)First you crush your wheat up gently and separate the kernels from the "trash". Then you chew it. If the kernels are soft and mushy-it is NOT time to harvest. If they are crunchy.....
IT'S HARVEST TIME!
ALL tractors, combine, truck and farm machinery is out and rolling!
SO, as I unexcitedly welcome 39, I decided a change was in order..
ALL women over 30 have short hair right? Well for sure all women over 40 do and since I'm knocking on 40's door...
I thought 39 was a great age to have short hair for the first time since I was 4 or 5!
I'm glad I did!
I really like it!

Nothing like a good haircut and color to make a girls day!
Thank you Lord for blessing me with another year of life!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY friend!!!! So glad to see that you were thoroughly blessed by your family. Oh I LOVE the hair--I think it looks stunning. What is it with hitting the 40's--most woman seen to cut their hair off. Funny!

You look wonderful for a mommy hitting 40--really!

We share the same birthday month and close to the same day--I turned 32 today! We head back to high court in the morning. And it looks like Jack will not be coming home tomorrow--it was hard news to swallow but I am trusting the perfect timing of the Lord.

Sounds like a wonderful celebration! I used to chew wheat kernals to test them when I was a State Crop inspector in College- what memories that little thought brought back!
Have a great day!

Your life is such a gift - and you keep on giving. You and your family are a wonderful example of the miracle of family through adoption, and every time I come to visit here, I feel blessed. I wish you every happiness.
