Several Odds and One End on This the Day of My Birth

.
The goofy man to whom I am married actually asked me this morning if I KNEW today was also my cousin Darlys' birthday. As if I WOULDN'T know my cousin was born on my first birthday and as if I hadn't celebrated my birthday with my "twin cousin" all my live long life.

Not to mention the fact we've been married for nearly 37 years and I've talked MULTIPLE times about sharing a birthday with my cousin Dar.

Honestly - - - that man I married. I don't know how he gets in out of the rain.

Two weeks ago while we were in Indiana, Fisherhubby and his bestest fishing buddy in the whole wide world, Mark, went fishing. As you can see Mark caught this beauty. A 40-something inch Musky.

Welcome to the world, little miss Finley Harper Rae Holloway!!!! It's a great big awesome world out here and you're just beginning your journey.

You will be ESPECIALLY pleased when you get to meet your crazy Great Aunt Keetha. (Hehehehehe)


Your big brother, Cohan, doesn't seem to be too sure about having you share his spot in the parental limelight - - - but don't worry, he'll love you and be proud of you as soon as he gets to know you.


And your great grandpa, Peepaw to most of us, already loves you and is very proud of you.

Movie time using mommy's lappy. Poor little Mack is fighting possible pneumonia - - - can you see the "sickness" in his eyes and on his rosy cheeks? I can.

And here's little Miss Piper. Seems the diva in her comes out at meal time and she refuses to eat. So, mama and daddy exiled her to the kitchen to eat alone in an effort to GET HER TO EAT SOMETHING rather than play around with her siblings at meal time.

I can honestly say no one has EVER had to exile me to get me to eat.

Food??? BRING IT ON!!!

And now, since odds and ends are really just fragments, and since it IS Friday I'm going to join Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments, something I haven't done for several long weeks.



Mommy's Idea

Please head on over to Mrs. 4444's place
And check out all the Friday Fragments.

Wow, what a great muskie. I presume they caught and released. People dream for years catching a muslie like this. Congratulations to Mark and his fishing buddy. Oh, and Go Badgers!

Why didn't this show up on my Dashboard?! I only found it because Aunt Pam mentioned it in a text! Boo!

Mack is feeling LOTS better today...he's up and playing and picking on his sister. I am SO VERY THANKFUL for breathing treatments and Mucinex!!!!!

Adorable kids, all of them. There's just something about kids that brings joy to life.

Happy Happy Birthday Keetha! I hope you have a great weekend and a happy New Year.

Happy birthday to you. I was taken by the muskie image and overlooked your annual age celebration. Good thing you are holding at 29 years old. Hope your bowl game goes better than mine. My team didn't show up until the fourth quarter. The 2012 team will be interesting with the Def Coordinator retired and wave of seniors gone. Can September get here sooner?

I love that look; the one men have on their faces when they've caught a whopper.

That is THE most beautiful baby name(s) that I have ever heard. She is absolutely beautiful, too. Congrats to your family :)

In regard to the post thing....Were you sure to click "Save" on your settings? So odd.
