Yup - Happy Birthday to me.
I've learned not to be shy about trolling for birthday wishes.
Saturday we combined Mommy birthday party and trim the tree evening. We listened to the Putuamayo New Orleans Christmas CD. There is nothing like Ingrid Lucia singing 'Zat you, Santa Claus? She sounds like Billy Holiday. Well, really Ingrid sounds like the drag queen Joey Arias "channeling" Billy Holiday but we won't get picky.
Our new family tradition for birthdays is music cards. For Amazing Guy's 40th Birthday, one of the cards was of Elvis Presley saying "I'd be nuthin' but a hound dog if I didn't wish you a Happy Birthday." That card was played over and over and over again for weeks. And every time you heard peals of giggles.
For my birthday cards, Amazing Guy let little lady pick out the card from the kids. And she put on quite a dance....
Even the boys got down and danced. Nothing like The Romantics to help usher in a new decade.
