For my Hubby: I Miss You!

Baby, the clock on the wall is lying
It's not really that late
It's too cold outside to be walking around
the streets of this town
Anywhere if you think you have to be can wait

(Chorus)
(Baby) Why don't you stay with me
Share all your secrets tonight
We can make believe the morning sun never will rise
Come and lay your head on this big brass bed
And we'll be alright as long as you stay with me, yeah

Baby, there's just no use in hiding
The way that I am feeling right now
With you standing there baby I swear I can't help but stare
Girl you're wearing me out, wearing me out

(Chorus)
(Baby) So why dont you stay with me share all your secrets tonight
We can make believe
the morning sun never will rise
Come and lay your head on this big brass bed
We'll be alright as long as you stay with me

Baby don't go it looks like it's starting to rain
And it's so warm here in this apartment wrapped up in this blanket

(Chorus)

Stay with me

Karrot's First Birthday

Thank you to all of you who attended Karrot's first birthday party. We had a great turn out.
First off, let me give most of the credit to my mom. I named the theme and she went all out. She thought of borrowing tables and chairs and got the decorations and all. Thank you for all your hard work!
We started off a little late as my mom ordered the pig for 2:00pm and the party started at 1:00pm. I also started the punch late and it called for juicing a bunch of lemons and we didn't have a juicer. It turned out yummy,though!
After rushing around and inviting everyone to eat, I almost forgot we had things to do! We had a pinata for the kids and then opened gifts and ate cake. I was surprised how excited the adults were to watch it all.
As pictures can say better than words how the day went, here you go!

Getting things ready for the pinata - yes that's part of a pool table stick

Going back for more candy!

Her favorite card: from her great aunt and uncle & their dog


Happy birthday to you...! She got her own unique piece of cake





A new way to eat cake!



She eventually decided to use her hands...

Great shot!

Yum!
