I should have titled this “Beans’ Birthday-day Wrap-Up…lol…
More pics from Beans’ Birthday Dinner @ home…We always have a get together with the fam on our real birthdays and, maybe, a bigger birthday party too w/more friends and the rest of the fam.
Her FAVE present - Handy Manny “Puh-Pair” shop from Lolo & Mum. We got her a camera (so she stops trying to use ours!):
Pics of Mama & Papa’s presents came out blurry, but she loved her clothes too! And here she is being silly w/her card from them – eye all peeking out :
Ever since Beans was born 4 years ago – 3 days before my birthday – my birthday has been put on the back burner. I knew that was going to happen when I was initially told her due date was my birthday. I’ve gotten used to it and actually don’t mind it. I don’t really need a reminder to tell me I’m getting older! I’m happy w/the birthday greets from family/friends via email, phone, text message and even FB. Friends keep telling me we should go out to celebrate anyway and I would love to, if my birthday didn’t fall during the busiest sesason of our work year and I wasn’t so exhausted or sick!
So anyway, for my bday, I was surprised to still score a few presents. One of the best presents? Beans passed her TKD test and got her ORANGE belt! So proud of my little bugger This time, she had to break the board using her arm/elbow (I forgot what that “punch” was called). For her yellow belt, she had to break the board w/a “hammer” punch using her fist.
Here she is w/that elbow/arm punch breaking the board! Took her a couple of tries, but she did it
My little TKD superstar
How terrible that this is the only pic of me on my bday – so haggard looking…That would be the direct result of working and running around doing errands for Beans’ Halloween Bday Party.
The rest of my birthday was spent @ my parents’ house decorating and prepping for Beans’ Birthday Party with the help of my siblings, nieces and nephews…Halloween was extra exhausting this year! That entry, coming up tomorrow, I hope.
