Birthdays, Cousins, Where Does Time Go?

Today is my cousin's 49th birthday! Really? 49?
But I'm only 30 something aren't I?
How is it my younger cousin got older than me?
Ok... I'm having an extreme moment of denial, but 49? Oh my!

I took this picture with my little Brownie camera on an Easter Sunday, many years ago. It's my sis, and cousins (from right to left) KLR, KDR, and PKR.

Here PKR is, on his knees, during a performance of Godspell.
(it's the November 18th post)
You are lookin' good PKR!
"Happy Birthday toooo you!"
And, KLR took this one of me! Oh my...

Speaking of birthdays, I celebrated mine on Sunday... my 52nd! Ouch! There's a dose of reality, but the alternative to having a birthday is not so great! I'm thankful for every new day I am given, wrinkles and all!

My husband surprised my with a brand new RED (my favorite color) Kodak EasyShare Camera! And a case! I was so surprised! I've haven't had time to play with it yet, but I will be posting some pictures soon.

He baked me a Pineapple Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting! Heaven! And he picked up one of my favorite dinners, Lemon Rosemary Chicken, from Johnny Carino's. We relaxed, watched some TV with my boys, ate more cake... It was a beautiful, relaxing birthday.

What a precious picture. When I showed it to my husband he could pick out PR right away! I didn't realize you were going to try to come to Godspell. I am sorry it didn't work out. It was absolutely amazing which I am sure you picked up from my blog. It was also so great to see B, P, and L. It sounded like the concert went very well.
Happy Birthday... and enjoy that camera.... and what a sweet husband to bake you a cake!!!

BTW, I have tagged you on my blog, if you would like to play along.

You and I are now the same age, born in 56. What a blessing :)

Toby passed out last night after an injection of rebif. I think he has vasal vagal response. His dad has had it and we've suspected Toby too. Scared is girlfriend and she called the ambulance.
The site is brusing today so he's calling the MS nurse. He's gotten red spots from it. Any wisdom you can share you know I need.

Many more happy birthdays for you.

Thinking about you and praying for you dear friend.
Sending more hugs.
