  23. Wow the big 5 0
    That is going to be many many candle to blow..hahaha

    If you hadn't spilled the beans I'd have hit around your twins age when I gave a call
    Even without your slobber blowing out the candles on the cake
    You know with food I wouldn't partake..haha
    Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Pat ~ I saved a plate of chicken nuggets just for you
    Even have a candle in them too.
    Don't worry, at 50 we still have air to blow
    Don't need spit and slobber to make the flames go.
    lol....
