Not having any children of my own I live vicariously through my friends who have children. I feel like I know Gina and Wendy's kids better than they do sometimes!

I called Wendy's phone today and Hope (second oldest with the greatest socks ever...) answered.

Me: Who is this?

Hope: Hope Fowler.

Me: Do I know you?

Hope: (laughing) Yes you know me aunt Jennifer.

Me: Do I like you?

Hope: (sigh) Yes aunt Jennifer. Do you want to talk to mommy? (I think at this point she was a little put out with me because I interruped her TV watching)

Me: Yes, where is she?

Hope: She's in bed.

Me: Okay, well, will you tell her to call me once she gets up?

Hope: Yes.

Me: Okay, but if you forget I'm not going to buy you a birthday present.

Hope: You never do anyway!

She had me there. I always have the best of intentions but fall short every year of fulfilling my goal of sending cards and money and all that good stuff.

Wendy called me back a few minutes later and I told her that I would have to buy Hope a birthday present now. She informed me that I also had to buy Bethany one because evidentially Hope was bragging about her present that she has not even received yet (and her birthday is in October) and Bethany ran into Wendy's room crying because Hope wouldn't share her present with her.

Ashlyn informed Wendy that I had to buy Bethany a gift as well. No problem. To find out just how cute Bethany (and all the other girls are for that fact) is, check out her blog

I like the changes here! Did you see my changes? I found a site that doesn't change your links & stuff-very cool.

Back on topic-just so you know, they think you're sending gifts for the missed 2008 birthdays! LOL!

Love ya,
