well, here it is. the new refrigermator. my Mom got all the stuff to fit in it (barely) and it works. she's a little unhappy 'cause the salesladyperson told her that 'cause it's "faux" stainless magnets would stick to the front. but they don't! (the Dad is real happy, he said all our cool magnets were "tacky.") plus, 'cause it cost so much it wound up bein' her birthday present!!! (is that fair??)
but, my Mom said she had a great birthday today. she took the day off work. she and the Dad went to a town where there are lotsa cool stores so they could walk and window shop (they bought chocolate cupcakes!) and just enjoy the day (my Mom said they held hands ~giggle~). plus, my sister Casey and i got her these really pretty flowers:and, her fav'rite part was the Dad made her some new joolry, just like he used to do when they used to do art shows. they're real pretty neck thingys that you put on long chains. we tried to take a picture of them but the flashy thing made them all shiny lookin' so we'll take a picture outside when it's light to show you how pretty they are. they made my Mom cry a little 'cause she was happy with them. (she cries at a lot of things lately. i wish she'd stop 'cause i never know what to do.....). so, happy birthday to my Mom. i'm so glad she's here with us to celebrate!
