Fun At Birthdays!

My friend and I had a double birthday celebration today.  We agreed to hold it at her house because it has more space than mine.  The party hasn’t started until about 1 P.M. because  most of the guests arrived late.  Some of them came from Dallas, and Mesquite, Texas.  Both of us cooked food for everyone.  But our friends also brought additional dishes and desserts.  I did not get to sing videoke and drink margarita because I had to leave early for another invitation.  I headed to Aubrey at 5 P.M to attend another friend’s birthday party.  She had invited me ahead of time couple of months before.  Since we have the same birthday, I responded to her request.  It was a long drive to Aubrey, Texas from the house.

I was happy that my MIL came over and looked after my little princess.  My hubby and FIL went to the casino in Oklahoma for some recreation.  The casino is about an hour and a half drive from where we live.

It's my birthday!

I had a big day today but I had a great time.  And I am very thankful for the thoughtfulness and well wishes.

Selling Chocolates For School Project

One day, while I was waiting for a ride to work, a group of children came to me and asked if I would like to buy a chocolate.  Of course, I interrogated them a little.   I learned that they are selling chocolate fundraisers to help them gather funds for their Science group project in school.

Although I really wanted to buy more chocolates so the kids will go home and sell a few left for the day, I thought my budget won’t be enough.  So I just bought couple.  Chocolate fundraisers can help achieve simple goals those kids have.  Rather than playing all day on a weekend, those kids have taken responsibility of accomplishing their school project with teamwork.
