Yesterday, my wife's family had her a birthday party. All of her sisters, nieces, and nephews were there...they all gave her good gifts...but they sure were surprised when she gave them a gift.....one of the best moments of my life....

So that's what's been going on here....I started cleaning out a room yesterday morning...going to have a garage sell in a couple of weeks to get rid of a bedroom suite...so that I can start creating a nursery...

wife said we might have to get rid of some decorations.....pff....I said we might have to get rid of the washer and dryer.....those decorations aren't going anywhere...

She laughed. I didn't.

Sounds like a great time, I remember sharing when we were having our boys, the faces and reactions were priceless.

No one touches the decorations here except me when it is time to decide what goes.

I'd add on to the house before I got rid of the decorations!!!!! Okay, maybe just a storage shed.

Locking the kids in the basement sounds like a good idea right about now. The boys got in big trouble earlier, and spent the last hour in their rooms.
