Day 18: Favorite Birthday

Day 18 of 30 Days: Your Favorite Birthday


There is no way that I can chose one favorite birthday. I love all of them. (Sure beats the alternative no matter how many years your celebrating)
I love getting cards from all the special people in my life.

And of course the beautiful flowers that Hubs sends me.

My sister-in law's birthday is just 5 days before mine so we always celebrate together.

My students love celebrating any ones birthday so they always go all out for mine. Its an excuse for a party and time away from classwork.

I do want to share one quick birthday memory with ya'll. When I was little the TV show Rescue 911 was popular and even though I hated it my little brother loved it so we would watch it. Well, thanks to this TV show I was always so scared that my house was going to catch on fire. I am talking about very paranoid. So at my 12th birthday party I was opening all my gifts and there was a BIG one that I decided to save for last. Cause we all know that you open the best present last and bigger is always better. Well, to my surprise (and horror) my "best" present was actually a fire extinguisher. I was so upset. And bratty I'm sure. I could not believe that my parents had bought me a fire extinguisher. Thank goodness they did. My cousin set our kitchen on fire a year later and I was able to extinguish it. I think I missed my calling. Should have been a firefighter and not a teacher.
