the backwards birthday...

I am going to whinge for a moment...

I HATE NOT HAVING MONEY when it is my 6 year old's birthday (and many other times too:)}

I HATE not being able to have a big blow out for her...

I HATE not being able to buy the Leapster she desires...

I HATE IT...I HATE IT...I HATE IT!!!!!!

Okay, back to my cheerful life is good, material possessions are not important, we have each other and our health, blah blah blah!Because Emma does not get off of the bus until 4:00pm, Steve needed to sleep at least an hour since he has worked 40 hours (since Monday morning) with 4 hours sleep here and there, and we must leave for Bible study by 5:50pm, Emma's birthday celebration had to be quick...
So...while the noodles cooked, she opened her gift {a Petshop animal and headbands~~yeah pitiful, I know} and then we sang Happy Birthday and ate the cake,and then we ate dinner.
Backwards Birthdays are fun!!!

Birthdays are complete~~~but as soon as we have a job, there is going to be a "Just Because" celebration!!!!!

  1. I love her cake! I also love "just because" celebrations...can we be included????
    I'm sorry things are difficult right now...hang in there! What's that saying? "Good things come to those who wait"? Whoever said that probably has never had to do without income:) I love ya'll....
