It's official...




We have a teenager in the house! Today is Nattie's 13th birthday! She opened her gifts last night (as is tradition in our family), and was thrilled with everything she received. She will be waiting for just a few days for her gifts from Iain and me: this Saturday, Nattie is getting her hair highlighted (she says she wants a chunk of pink or some other color in the front!), and then next Tuesday, Nattie and I are going to see Rob Thomas in concert in Denver. It's going to be a fun few days for her.
In other news, I've been home sick for the last couple of days; I went to the doctor this morning and she told me I have another sinus infection. Ugh! Iain and the kids are out having dinner this evening, and then when they come home we're all going to watch a movie of Nattie's choosing. We have about 6" of snow on the ground as a result that headed through here last night - it looks really pretty outside :) I hope your week is going well!

Happy Birthday, a bit belated! Sounds like a very special celebration, stretching out over several days!
Hope you're feeling better today, Toni.

I love Rob Thomas...just downloaded his newest album on Amazon. It's great. We went to see Matchbox Twenty a few years ago and they put on a great show, so I know ya'll will have fun!
