Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

Happy 60th Birthday, Mom!

We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday on Saturday. We had a great bbq and all of the family was there (except Ryan and Natalie's family. Missed you guys!). Here is my mom with her cake. By the way, my sister-in-law makes these. Visit her website at the bottom of my blog page!

So here is the best picture. We gave Madison a VERY late birthday present and part of it was this tiara. I got it on Terry's head and then he let us take a picture! Note: this was not an alcoholic birthday so Terry is STONE sober at the moment! Told you he was a teddy bear!
Alex and Alli came and brought little Boston. I was teasing my grandpa that if I was a grandma, what did that make him? He said proudly "A great-great-grandpa!". So we took a picture of five generations.

We had a great time. Thanks to Rachelle for putting it all together. Thanks mom, for having such a wonderful family. You are one of my best friends, I know a lot of people can't say that about their moms and I am lucky that I can. I hope you have 40 more birthdays like this! I love you!
