Happy Birthday to ME!

Another year gone by with many wonderful memories. My oldest is home from college and we are enjoying her company again. What more could a mother ask for? Well, maybe for all of her children to behave for a family picture. Is that too much to ask? THIS is why you don't have 4 kids! You can't take a decent family picture with everyone looking normal in a single picture. We sure did have a lot of fun taking these though. Look at little guy. He cracks me up with that cheesy smile. And older son with his interesting personality... Yeah.
So much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to in the new year.
So, what do I want for my birthday? I'm trying to re-arrange the sewing room again. Hubby says it must be the 21st time I've done that. Maybe this time it will work. the problem is I have too much stuff for too small of a space. I can't figure out how to shrink everything down and I don't want to get rid of anything. I think I might go either to Ikea or to a sewing machine dealer in Sacramento. I'm looking for handles for my quilting machine so I can put the machine up against the wall and work from one side. Right now I have to work from both sides. That would free up about 2 feet of extra space. If I could do that, I could move the quilting machine against the wall. I think Ikea might just have some extra storage stuff that would give me more places to hide fabric. I wonder if the girls would come shopping with me. I think they have always wanted to go to Ikea. I hear you can get lost in that store :)
And tonight we are going to Fresh Choice for dinner. I always go there for my birthday dinner. I always over eat too.
Hope your day is happy too!
