It's my birthday today! 9-11-10

Today is my birthday!  And my twin sister's, and my favorite cousin's!  I'm tuning 370 years old today.  ok, so I only feel like it's 370.  It's really just 37, but when you go to bed at 6 pm the night before your birthday, you tend to feel a little older than 37.  My birthday has been and always will be special to me, no matter what.  I LOVE that I have always gotten to share it with my fantastic sister.  I love the cake, the excuse to eat ice cream and chips and hotdogs all at once, and (I hate to admit it) the presents!!!!! I remember having a sleepover party while listening to Michael Jackson's newest album, "Thriller" and the year all we wanted was Cabbage Patch dolls.  Be quiet.  I already told you I feel old.
This year (as well as last year), my hubby is in Vegas with his buddies- doing a fantasy football thing.  So that leaves me here, by myself with my two adorable children.  Both of them are feeling a little under the weather, so my plans to drag them to the beach went flying out the window.  That's ok.  Matt is going to win me a million dollars this weekend, and the kiddos are going to let me be lazy.  But I still need a little somethin'-somethin' from you guys.  How about a birthday contest? Yeah?
