Happy Birthday Angelina!!

On this day 4 years ago, my sister had her first baby...My niece Angelina! We call her "Angel" for short, but an angel she ain't! :)

My niece being born was simultaneously joyful and painful for me. As you know from my last HNT, I had been trying for a very long time to get pregnant. My sister is younger than me, and had always said she didn't even want to have kids. When she got pregnant, it broke my heart. I felt like I'd been punched in the stomach when I heard the news. My Mom was the one who told me, because my sister was scared to let me know. She knew it would be painful for me.

Angelina was born 2 days before my 30th birthday...I'd hoped she'd be born ON my birthday, but I guess she couldn't wait any longer! Since that day, she's been spoiled rotten, lemme tell ya! I love her with all my heart and she's brought me much more joy than pain. Happy Birthday Angelina! I love you!

In other news, we went and picked up 5yr old yesterday for his weekend visit. Went to Big Lots and got a tree for Christmas! 20 bucks for a 7ft. tree with 300 lights on it already! They didn't have much of a selection as far as ornaments and stuff, so we went over to Wal-Mart and got a bunch of decorations. We haven't had a Christmas tree for about the last 3 Christmases since we were on the road in the big rig. The tree we used to have, and all our decorations, were lost when we moved. That really sucked since it was ornaments from my childhood and stuff like that.

Today we'll be going to McDonald's for Angelina's birthday party. 5yr old LOVES MickeyD's, so he's really looking forward to the party. Right now, though, I am doing laundry so the girls will have something to wear (that's warm enough!) and MrKB is getting a spot ready for our tree. It's gonna be a busy weekend!

Jenn: Thanks hun...she does kinda have an evil look in her eye while trying to look innocent, doesn't she? lol

Kali: My sister gave her MY middle name, she said "In honor of me" because she knew what I'd been through trying to have a baby. How sweet is that? (my middle name is Marie btw)...and I grew up with a girl named Angela! Her parents and mine are STILL friends that get together all the time. We've known each other since Kindergarten, both of us fixin' to be on the 5th, her on the 19th.

TC: The tree is up and looks awesome! The kids did a great job putting the ornaments on...I had the job of putting hangers on the ornaments. McD's was great, chaotic as you can imagine!

Kim: Thanks! We did! :)

Tell your sister that is a cutie and wish her happy birthday.

Have fun putting up your Christmas tree. We have not put ours up yet but once we do we HATE to take it down.

Busy weekends are good. They will be plenty of weekends with nothing to do after the kids are grown.

What a sweet little girl!

Chris: Thank you! The weekend was great, if not tiring. Thanks so much for stopping by and for the early birthday wishes! :)

mdrock: Thanks hun! We did, it was fun, especially great this year because of the kids. Yep, 34 is right. Thanks to you too for the early bday wishes! :)

MCB: Hey there! Putting up the tree is great, but taking it down and packing away all the stuff is always kinda a pain. Plus it's a bit of a let down that Christmas is over.

Lecram: LoL...Don't let that innocent look fool ya! :)
