  24. I also want a slice of cake, hahaha!
    Happy Birthday, dear Anni:)

  25. Okay, so I'm really behind and just read your previous post - the math facts had me laughing and crying - so incredibly sad.

    We used to do that kind of dangerous sledding in northern Minnesota, too (well, others did - I wasn't quite that brave). What was really bad was when the kids were hook their hands onto the back bumper of the school bus and try to get a ride. My dad was a bus driver as an extra job and he was always having to chase kids off his bus - can you imagine the liability??!!

    Again, have a wonderful birthday - and I wish I could have a piece of that delicious looking cake, but alas, my new food program won't allow it! ;0)

  26. Happy Birthday !!!!!!

  27. Happy Birthday!

  28. Happy Birthday to you. Have a great day.

    Love and Hugs,

  40. I want a corner piece because I'm dying to devour that frosting. In your honor, of course. Happy, happy, happy!

  41. Hi Anni!
    Happy Birthday!
    Found you on Pea's Blog, it's my birthday today as well.We are exactly the same age.
    Hope you have a great day!

  42. Hi Anni - yes, that is my prose. I actually had the heat of excitement and anticipation on my mind when I matched it up to my photo (that's me too oh about a million years ago). All the heat is being generated because of my approaching retirement. I'm at four months and counting.

    By the way, I noticed your photo of your grandparents. I just last week was sent a photo of my great great grandfather. I had NEVER seen him before. Be sure to duck back in and scroll to one of my Saturday posts for his picture and story.

    Thanks so much for your good words.

  43. OHHHHH
    happy birthday!

  44. Happy, Happy Birthday...Hope you had a special day!

  45. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you had a great day!
