so much good news!

First, I have to put on my Plus-Sized Braggy-McBraggy Pants because people, my boys rocked their candidate testing and now I am the proud mama of a black belt and a 2nd degree black belt. Mr. B and Mr. T were amazing in their perseverance and effort Saturday. And they look wicked cute sporting their brand-new karate belts. It takes a little extra to impress me on this front, and my guys blew me away Saturday night at their graduation. Great work, boys!

Naturally we celebrated with some sugar--they put their friend A. through her paces trick-or-treating last night. They have enough candy to last them a year--they're rolling in it, as pleased with themselves as Halliburton executives landing another billion dollar defense contract. They went to bed last night, faces smeared with make up and chocolate, happy and exhausted.

And I have a winner to announce! The Treat Girl won a copy of Lemur Troops and Critter Groups by the Fabulous Rena Jones! She was celebrating over the weekend, too--her son won his Superbowl game. Congratulations to The Treat Girl and her son!

Finally, today is Mr. D's birthday. Happy Birthday, Big Daddy. I feel thankful to have you in my life, Mr. D. You're an incredible man--loyal, funny, charismatic, curious, naturally athletic, smart and generous. Many, many happy returns of the day. I love you.
