Kindle Fire:...What? I want one too!

My favorite Munchkins from Texas called tonight excited as all heck,
they are my two youngest nephew's who have their birthday's in April 
and just happen to be brothers. I sent their birthday package to them last
week knowing it would arrive sometime early this week.  As I predicted,
they received the package last evening.  I knew the phone would be ringing
soon with lots to share about the birthday parties and gifts. 

Seth, the oldest at 10 years old was first to share his excitement,
mostly of the Kindle Fire he received.  I heard all the in's and out's of what a Kindle Fire
can do and  the one thing it cannot do according to Seth is take pictures, but he was totally OK with that.
 A Kindle Fire...?!
Are you kidding me??
 I want a Kindle Fire..! 
Especially after Seth's explanation of  what a Kindle can do..
I was then asked if I know what an XBox is..
 Saying "yes"...I then got all the in's and out's of some control they received which was still in the box and Seth was (his words) Begging his daddy to open it so the games could begin.
Seth was trying so hard to explain this new control contraption that I would understand how it all works,
he at one point suggested I "ask Jeremy,...he can explain it all to you"...That's OK Seth, I'll let this between you guys:)

Then the Littlest Guy, Keegan who had his 5th birthday said a few words and Thank You's for his gifts.

I love hearing the excitement in their voices as they share the birthday activities and gifts consuming them at the moment....priceless!

So here we are the last week of April and we're now having March Weather...
I sure hope this is not an indication of what the Summer will be like with unseasonable Weather.
I have way too much planned for the Weather to be uncooperative..

Thanks for stopping by my Friends...!

I'm off to do some research on a Kindle Fire..:))

A Happy Birthday It Was..!

Today we celebrated my Son's 24th Birthday along with our Loved Aunt Margie's...
Aunt Marge watched my son when I returned to work Part Time when he was only 4 months old,
she has always been more than an "Aunt" to Jere and her birthday was actually my 
due date when I was pregnant,

Jere was born Four days after her birthday and as long as I can remember, we have always 
celebrated a dinner in honor of them both...!
Aunt Marge was diagnosed with Cancer  just before Christmas,
She had surgery with some complications but has rebound remarkably.
Her Chemotherapy treatments are going very well with her blood work 
all within normal levels.  The past couple of months had been very hard on 
Jere knowing and seeing "his" Aunt Margie going through so much and feeling so ill.
But with many Prayers and Faith, 
Aunt Margie is feeling better than she has in a very long time...

I was prepared to make a Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberries and Cream
for the birthday couple...
 But Aunt Margie's Best Friend had dropped off this Beautiful Huge Cake on her Birthday to 
which she wanted to share with Jere at their annual Birthday Dinner.
Thinking we would just add "Jere's" name to the cake knowing
he would not mind the Yellow and Pink Roses.
But Jere being Jere wouldn't hear of it.
When he realized what was going to be done when the tube of Writing Icing was brought out,
he said to keep the Cake just the way it was and to not add his name. 

We had a wonderful day celebrating with much laughter and good food....!!
And the Cake....Heavenly!
The Chiffon Cake will be made in the very near future,
and I promised Jere I would bake him cupcakes to treat at his work tomorrow.
So the alarm is set for 6am...Yikes!
 Have a Fantastic Week and thanks for stopping by..!

Spring In My Step

Lovin' this beautiful weather here in PA..! 

Spring has not disappointed,
the days are getting longer and the sun is getting higher and warmer!

Today was a day of many errands that needed to be taken care of..!
I have several Birthdays in April I routinely gift,
this year has been an over aboundance of birthday party invites..
From friends celebrating their grandbabies 1st birthday and the BIG 50
to family turning a special number this year,
the invites have been pouring in..!
 I always love me a good party..no matter what the age.
I was able to find gifts for Four different birthday Guys and Dolls
who will have their Special Day in April.
The only gift(s) I haven't purchased are for my son...

He is a very independent young man:) 
not needing or wanting anything..!

As I ventured out this morning,
a call came in from a dear blogger friend, Tricia.
 Her voice was sounding tired, but you could still detect a bit of excitement from her
as she shared with me her baking experience from the day before.

Tricia had phoned me yesterday for a long over due chat,
during our conversation she shared her desire to bake for her husband and family,
but not always feeling the best physically at the times when they crave her goodies.
I shared with Tricia how I bake  goodies and freeze them so there is always 
something to grab in a pinch...
I do massive baking and freezing several times a year, 
Especially during the summer months when our pool is open and we have friends and family
stopping by on a whim...
Tricia did the same last evening when she had a small burst of energy!
Good Job, Tricia:)

After returning home in the early Evening,
a phone message was left from our Dear Aunt Margie..
She too, is going through a medical issue and not feeling the best at times.
Her message was the "happy" and "silly" Aunt Margie we all love,
it was so good to hear her voice with that little "spring" in it..!
Aunt Margie also has a Birthday in April,
She has already received her gift, 
A Purple Lilac Bush.
She is replacing old shrubs and requested Lilac's for replacment.
Her request was a very easy one:)

As I was leaving one of the stores I stopped at this afternoon,
I thought I heard my name being called as I walked towards my car.
I turned to see my Cousin exiting the store calling after me:)
Audrey has always been more like a sister to me,
even though through the years we haven't been able to see each other
as much as we both would like,
that closeness has always remained and it was so great chatting with her 
for about 30 mins in the parking lot..hahaha

What a great day to start with and end with,
Three Very Lovely Ladies sharing their "happy" times and awesome love for life with me..!

Love You Ladies..!  
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy life...!
