Marinne turned 11! She got to spend the day with her cute cousins. We went to lunch, and then to the mall. She got her ears peirced and bought a bunch of clothes and accessories. She is such a girlie-girl!Her cousin Livvy's birthday is the same day!I'm also another year older, and spent my birthday in my scout uniform running pack meeting. I did eat some yummy chocolate cake, and Ray picked up P.F. Chang's.
Ray wrapped up our birthday month, and I made him a MUSE cake for the occasion.
Four birthdays in less than a month! Now we get a little breather until James' birthday next month!
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was here and that I really lived." -Marjorie Pay Hinckley
