Do you have any plans for the weekend? My son turns eight tomorrow, so there will be a birthday party and lots of Legos in his future. Hope you have fun too!

Happy birthday to Alex! (Remind him again he has the most awesome name ever.)
I'm passing on the egg a day and will stick with my apples.

I better start eating more eggs. Happy birthday to Alex and his stuffed pals.

Sandra Almazan said...

Thanks, Alex. I too prefer apples over eggs.

Thanks for the good wishes, Pat!
