A Little Something...

My cousin told me that she was sending me "a little" something in the mail for a special day for me to celebrate. She said I shouldn't get too excited about it. It turned out to be so much more than I could have anticipated:


She sent me 4 balls of yarn, a book about yarn, PURPLE cards and PURPLE candles. This chick knows her stuff!!! I am so excited and I love her dearly. Not just because she sent me great stuff, but because everything inside the package was personalized for me. She is always thoughtful with her wonderful words of advice!

Between this and my last post (the yarn cake), I think my family is picking up on my obsession of this yarn and knitting thing. It's awesome :)

Aren't You Jealous!?!



That's right! My mom wrote a recipe for YARN BIRTHDAY CAKE!!! I'm so spoiled :) Today is my birthday and I celebrated with my family yesterday. We actually celebrated four birthdays in my family that all fall within the same week. Amanda (me), Bill (dad), Carol (aunt) and David (uncle). My aunt pointed out that it's the A,B,C,D Birthday. Loved it!

As far as my birthday today...well it was spent student teaching until 2:40pm, doing homework, writing lessons and going to class from 4:40-8:00pm. Not so exciting today. It's only 9:30 and I am ready for bed! Wow, I feel old! ;) To make the day a little better, my K-1 class sang happy birthday to me and gave me cards they made themselves. Their teacher even had them estimate my age. I got everything from 16-80. Do I really look that young or old?? Kids are funny! Definitely made me laugh :)
