Happy Birthday To me. I am now officially in the middle of my Fabulous Fifties!!!! And I am having a great Birthday...I am one very Blessed lady!! I have a wonderful Husband, 6 great kids(2 birth) (4 step) pretty good health and an Awesome God!!!!Also 3 GRANDChildren!!! What more could any one want.

I have enjoyed my day, I choose to stay home today and tonight and do just what I wanted and that is what I have done!!! How many get that option? Have a crock pot of pinto beans, in a while will make a pan of cornbread ,peel an onion and that will be Dh's and my supper. Yummy!!
Tonight will be quite at our house, we live in the country so no trick or treaters. my ds 19 did come by and painte his face and dressed up as the Joker to go to work tonight, so I did get to see 1 kid excited...
Please bear with me to reminise about times past!!! This was my favorite time of the year as a kid, my birthday and also the school carnivals, to me they were were so exciting to me. The games in different classroom, The cake walk, The glass jug that held marbles and a chance to guess the number of marbles it held to win a great prize. And also the King and Queen chosen. they would always be 5th graders. I always thought that would be the ultimate to get to be queen, they were chosen by how much money they had collected!! Of course for me we moved before I was in the 5th grade and guess it was just as well, our family had 7 kids in school and 2 babies at home and we were lucky to have money to buy groceries. I got to live my dream through my daughter, when she was on the homecoming court her sr. yr. She was also my 25th birthday present, born the day before my birthday, she turned 30 yesterday, wow where as the years gone.
Also going trick or treating as a kid was great, we walked miles and miles around our town getting candy, it was so exciting. Back then candy was a real treat, Of course these days not a good idea, I see Church's having carnivals tonight so that is good.
Thanks for taking time to share my memories and hope you all have a great night!!!!

Happy Birthday.
Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Yes it is a blessing to have the option to do nothing, and enjoy it. Even your dinner choice sounds perfect to me. Hope God blesses you with a wonderful year.
