An Answer to Ezra's Prayers

The floors are covered with balloons, the garbage is full of wrapping paper, the huge pile of dishes Aunt Heather washed for me is all put away...Yep, the day after a couple of birthday parties. I promise to blog about her tea party lunch with the kids her age and also the birthday dinner for Caroline and Uncle Alan. But today I'm a little bit tired. Right now I'm going to go sit on the couch and read books to my kids. Then, we are all going to take a nap. And I won't feel one bit guilty. Why not? Because Ezra's prayers were answered. What prayers, you ask? Oh--the one where he wants to have a new baby brother or sister. Yep, the reason I can nap all I want is due mid-February. Now am I excused from the birthday blogging for a day or two?

Yep - that is a good reason for a nap but I don't think a good reason for skipping the blogging!!! But if you are a day late or so...okay! That is wonderful news and I wish you and baby good health. You can probably expect a "comfortable" chair at meeting.....
