Happy Birthday to Me

Amelia and dh were baking a reduced fat chocolate cake for me last night. Amelia sang, "Happy Birthday to Mommy Cake," which was so cute. Not sure if I am Mommy Cake or if she was singing to the cake itself. She also sang something we couldn't figure out for awhile, it sounded like "Only From the Frame." We wracked our brains, repeating, "Only From the Frame...."? Finally, she got down from her chair for her nearly-brain-dead parents and did the whole song and dance, which emerged as "If I Only Had a Brain," from Wizard of BOZ. So funny!!! She even fell down at the end, like the scarecrow does. She did this many times.

Among my amazing gifts was a tiny silver pin of a little girl that Amelia says is her. (Aww....).

BIL sent me an Amazon gift certificate which is gone now. Lots of sock books coming soon! hehe. I am obsessed with socks. Socks. Want to knit socks for the secret pal, but she lives in CA, so I better make them in cotton. BTW, don't buy Inox circulars. They suck. The join isn't smooth like Addi Turbos. The new Knit Picks circulars, however, are great! And cheap!!! Go Knit Picks!

My Secret Pal sent me the cutest stitch markers! They are all very "Me." See for yourself!

Hope you had a fantastic birthday. How cute your daughter is--I love how toddlers interpret their worlds.

Happy Birthday!!! Amelia is so adorable. Aren't kids funny with the things they come up with?
I think I'm the one who needs a brain. ;o)

Happy birthday a little late! I hope that it was great! (I am a poet and did not know it!)
