As for the being spoiled on my birthday, here are all of the glorious details. I woke up (after getting to sleep in) to get a phone call from my sister Renee telling me that SHE IS PREGNANT. For the 3 people who actually read this, I am sure you all already know that. But none the less, it was the highlight of my birthday (sorry Peter, I know you tried). After that, I was bouncing off the walls so my massage was canceled per my request, and instead we just walked around The Marina, one of my favorite places, and then headed up to Seattle. This is where I got my tour of UW, and due to dinner reservations sneaking up on us, we headed to the U District and played a rousing game of speed. I would like to announce that I won. After that we went to this cute restaurant called The Pink Door. And ate lots of garlic. Kim, you would have been soooo proud. And then off to a chocolate restaurant called The Dillitant (sp?). I really was very spoiled. And then we got to go see Katie and her husband Casey, and then my cousin Jordan. All in all it was one of the top birthdays. You have a lot to top next year Renee. Last year I got Carrie Underwood tickets, this year a new niece or nephew. You better start planning for next year.

"So now we know how it all happened.
God was missing for six days, eventually, Michael the archangel found him resting on the seventh day.
He inquired, “where have you been?”
God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, “look, Michael, look what I’ve made!”
Archangel, Michael looked puzzled, and said, “what is it?”
It’s a planet, “replied God, and I’ve put life on it. I’m going to call it Earth and it’s going to be a place to test balance.”
Balance? “inquired Michael, I’m still confused!
God explained pointing to different parts of Earth. “for example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor.”
Over here I’ve made a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people, balance in all things. “God continued pointing to different countries, “This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”
The archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a land area and said, “what’s that one?”
“That’s Washington State, one of the most glorious places on earth, there are beautiful mountains, rivers, and streams, lakes, forests, hills and plains. The people from Washington State are going to be handsome modest intelligent, and humerous, and they are going to tavel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of software.”
Archangel gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, “but, what about balance, God? You said there would be balance.”
God smiled, there’s another Washington, wait till you see the idiots I put there!"
I hope you all get a kick out of it as much as I did!

So I found this new recipe for some Valentines Day cookies, and I made them about two weeks ago and sent them to Jon in Iraq, and Renee and Anna could not keep their hands off of them. Renee kept trying to convince me that Jon would want her to have one. Anna tried to join that bandwagon, it so did not work with me. So I decided to be a nice sister and make them again, this time for them.
