My two Sweet Girls!
Happy Birthday mommy!

To Mommy: From Courtney

Today is my birthday. I won't tell you my age. I am not over 35 and I am not under 30. Age don't really matter does it? I am glad I have two beautiful children to celebrate with this year. Courtney made me a really sweet card. Kevin brought me balloons home this morning. Kevin forgot a cake this year. I did not need one anyway. Kevin took us all to eat Friday for my birthday, because he had to work last night and we had church this morning. Kevin had to sleep this afternoon. The girls and I went to my parents house for hamburgers.
We are now home and I need to clean the house. I have a social worker coming in about a week. I am not stressing out over the house like I did before when she came. This is just a post placement visit that China requires. I agreed to have it, so I have to go through with it. I have one at 6 months and one at 12. I hate these things. They make me feel like my life is being watched in so many areas. Before when our social worker came I was so stressed out. I heard they look in your refrigerators and your cabinets. Of course that is not true in our case. My social worker was a real sweet person. I told her about all the things we had heard and she laughed. She said that in a case where a child has been abused or taken out of a home that they will look in your refrigerators and pantries to make sure you have food. They don't do that in a adoption case. My house got the best cleaning it had ever got during that time. I am hoping she don't go through the house this time since she has already saw it. I will clean, but not major clean. It don't do much good around here to clean. I have a little girl who likes to bring toys and place them in every room. She also likes to spill cereal in the floor. I like seeing all the toys around though. There was a time that I did not think I would ever see any toys all over the house. I will gladly look at toys and let my house look lived in. I guess there is a difference in clean, dirty, clutter, and lived in. My house looks lived in. I used to be so picky with my house. My house would be spotless and nothing out of place. All that changed when children came along. It really changed when I started to homeschool. I need to go clean some, so that is all for now. I hope you all have a Happy Memorial Day.

To my wonderful wife on her birthday:
I wanted to let you know that I am so thankful that I have got to share life with you for another year. There is no one else that I would rather share it with. I love you so much. I trust that you will have many more birthdays. Maybe I'll be off so I can share some of them with you.
I love you to China and back,
