40 is Fine

I had a great first day being 40. I slept in an extra few hours. I had my favorite sandwich for lunch (Chicken, mozzarella, pesto and tomato pannini). I got to run in the woods and didn't see too many snakes. I had an awesome birthday meal (chicken yellow with ice cream and strawberries for dessert.) And my children gave me a great present. When Logan turned 7 I gave him a letter with 77 ways I loved him. Cathy, Logan, Avery and the babies each gave me a card with 10 ways they love me, making a total of 40 ways. Along with that was a big, heavy box containing a baking stone! Here is a video of Meryl eating the dessert with abandon. Don't you sometimes wish you could eat that way!

(Please ignore the fact the video ends with me whacking my kid upside the head. He was eating my ice cream and deserved it! And yes, Meryl's diaper is duct taped on and Finley is naked. My standards are very, very low!)

This is hysterical! Meryl is LOVING it. The tape is a crack up. Happy belated birthday Heather. I can't believe you're forty- it's about time.

Great to finally see Cathy on your blog. ONLY 40 ? Wish I was 40 again.
We'll be out in the fall and teach Logan not to sample other peoples' dessert !! L & M
