Your week sounds like mine! Why did we have children in February? We have our 21st wedding anniversary and then we move directly into the week long celebration that has become my son's birthday. (For some reason, his school always takes three or four days off around his birthday and he just assumes those are bonus days to celebrate.) Have fun this week!

your week looks a lot like mine should look, except that hubby works an hour away and the transporters haven't even picked up his car from Michigan yet so Genny and I are inexplicably stuck at home...
