We had Mitzi take some family pictures for us and they turned out great. Mitzi really has an eye for great pictures, as well as finding great spots for taking pictures. As for us, we are all doing great. I just had my birthday on Dec. 4 and got the straightener that I've wanted for a while. (Thanks, sweetie!) I also wanted to set up all my Christmas decorations for my birthday, but I guess I should have let Ivie in on my plans. Her goal was to break as many things as she could, and make as many messes as she could. Maybe she thought that if she was having lots of fun then so was I. However, she did give me lots of hugs and kisses all day and would say, "Oh, I love you, Mom." That's always a good birthday present.
