Over the Hill, Or Maybe Not!

This is a quick one 'cause I am leaving with the children soon. I turned 40 yesterday, it came and went like all my other birthdays have and, in the end I am feeling lucky to be 40. Some people don't get the chance to turn 40. I never thought it would bother me like it does some people, but the day before my birthday I told Jameson(13) that I was going to be old tomorrow. He replied, "No, you're not old til you're 50." I laughed and he was actually a little offended and said. "I'm serious, it's a fact, everybody knows that!" So, in light of my new found wisdom, I have another 10 years until I am old. Now that I've said that, I am sure one of the children will push that age back another 10 years when this decade has passed. So, I guess I will never be old. I will just pass my years until I have none left and pass from this world a young albeit fairly weathered woman! Chuckle chuckle. What would we do without the wisdom, love, and unintentional humor of our children?

That is so cute, it's nice when your children make you feel young rather then old. I can't believe your belly flopper is Jensen! She looks so grown up and your new little one is adorable. You can tell she's an Eliason :) I think anyone who can handle a family of eight is Gr8 :)Welcome to the world of blogging!
