Happy Birthday to Me!!!!!

So, I had a birthday.  Had some chinese food (one of my favorite indulgences...okay, not really an indulgence if I have it at least once a week), my traditional "birthday Mexican Coke" and one of my favorite birthday cakes!  It was a great day!  Thanks to Jeff, my hubby that spoils me more than I deserve, and my kids, that love me unconditionally even with all my inadequacies and mean mommy syndrome, and the rest of my family, my brother and his little family that show love and support and pick out the best shoes and to my mom and dad who constantly remind me that family sticks together no matter how messy things get.  It certainly was a fantastic day.

Happy Birthday to my Nessa!!

My Nessa turned 3 on May 11th.  Vanessa, who goes by many names like Nessa, Nessy, Ness, Sweetie Pie, has been kind of an emotional wreck these past several months.  Maybe it's the age?  She can pretty much burst into tears and laughter in less than a minute.
Some notable things about my Nessa:
She loves to twirl, especially if she is wearing a skirt.
She is tiny, but her tummy is pretty huge!
She loves to peel cuties...even if she doesn't end up eating them she enjoys peeling them.
She calls her feet her "dogs."
She sucks her thumb while holding her "softie."
She is funny.
She truly is a sweetheart.
She is a parrot...especially with inappropriate commercials.
She loves shoes.
She loves Hello Kitty (don't really know how that happened.)
She loves shrimp.

Anyway, Nessa is such a sweetheart.  I can't imagine our family without her.  She provides just the right amount of sweetness and innocence and softness that our family needs.  We love our little doll!
