Although this has nothing to do with quilting, I just wanted to share this with you this morning.
Summer is BIG for birthdays in our family, only one of of us doesn't have a summer birthday (and she married into the family, so that explains it!) - EVERYBODY else has a birthday from July to September. It's a flurry of birthday lists and birthday cake!
My husband's birthday list had four things on it, I barely came up with five (and that included the usual ITunes gift card, etc.) ... even my youngest had a birthday list with maybe eight things on it.
Today I opened my mail and received this from my son ...
Well, it's that time of the year again when you all get to express your love for me in a more concrete and let us say... material way. That being said, remember better gifts correlates to greater love.... Additionally, this list is not meant to be exhaustive - cash, much larger gifts, and transfer of marketable securities and real estate are all acceptable. Let the time for honoring me and gift giving begin!
It was then followed with twenty one gift suggestions for his upcoming birthday, with a note that he would continue to update the list and inform us of any changes.
This is a kid who has always enjoyed his birthday waaay tooo much. There's one in every family, isn't there??
