I got my biggest gifts before my birthday…
My morning started out with Caroline opening my bedroom door, and Chester making a mad dash for my bed. He cuddled up under the covers with me for a few minutes until I got out of bed.

The kids fixed me breakfast. There were 3 pancakes (2 were still gooey in the middle), 3 strawberries, a banana, and a bowl of apple cinnamon oatmeal. (It was cold and hard by the time I got to it. I’m not sure how long it had been sitting there.) I put some milk in the oatmeal and reheated it, ate the strawberries and one pancake that was cooked through, ate the oatmeal, and PJ saved me by disposing of the other pancakes. (This is an improvement over the year they tried to make me pancakes in the oven…)
