It's hard to believe I have been a mother for twenty years. It's hard enough to deal with me being 40, but wow! motherhood anniversary too! Brittney celebrated her 20th at the house with family and friends. Good food and lots of fun! We were thankful she was content being at home and allowed us to be a part of a mile marker in her youth!

Hunter did a presentation on Christmas in Ireland. All the students in Mrs. Coxen's third grade class each had a country. Hunter got to interview a friend of ours that was raised in Ireland. The children exchanged gifts as well and the holiday festivities continue.

I dreaded turning 40. Not sure why! I guess it's never easy realizing you have completed yet another decade. Brittney baked me a wonderful cake - Each year with its own story of its creation. Prior to that we enjoyed dinner out with a sombrero on my head and being serenaded by some mariachi's who weren't quite sure how to pronounce Happy Birthday JOY. It brought smiles and laughter! later, my sweet hubby produced an XFM radio! (It didn't work in my office that faces North, but we are enjoying it in the van) Another one of my favorite gifts was the calendar Brittney created and spent her hard earned money on. It had all kinds of different pictures for each month with Brittney's own comments and interpretations. It was a wonderful Birthday!
