    Happy birthday to you both!! Do you have the same birthday or just close? My oldest and I have the same birthday. It's very cool, although I wasn't really thrilled with spending my 22nd birthday in labor! LOL!

    Hi I did subscribe as I did link on my site beyond the entrecard widget, thanks.

    What a sweetheart Charlotte is - gorgeous! Takes after her mum of course!

    Happy, happy birthday to you both! Have fun!

    You are in my Google reader AND I used to get your posts read out to me as a podcast in iTunes (that seemed to stop lately though not sure why...) I think getting an email too is over-egging the pudding as my mother used to say, as much as I love reading your blog :-D

  • Amy Lilley Designs 8.8.08

    Oh Kim...isn't she her Mom...a very, very Happy Birthday to YOU as well...that was some present you received 17 years ago...yes??? Hope you all have a blast w/ the sleep over...I'll be thinking of you...:) :) :)

  • Anonymous 8.8.08

    Yep, enter me in the draw please.
    I have already linked to you Kim in my list of entrecard participants to visit daily.

    Happy birthday Charlotte...I hope you get a present of $5000., just joking Kim.

  • Kim 8.8.08

    haha Christine..
    I can imagine how you felt..
    I had a caesarian with Charlotte (placenta praevia) and the Doctor gave me a choice...the day before my birthday or the day naturally I chose the day after (August 10) lol..

    great Jasko :)
    thank you..
    you're in the draw :)

    thanks and thanks Diane...
    Charlotte took the photo herself...she's quite talented when it comes to photography..especially self portraits :)
    Charlotte is SO excited..hehe
    "over-egging the pudding" haha I've never heard that's a good one...

    thanks very much Amy..
    goodness it only seems like yesterday that she was a tiny little she's 5'9" and towers over me..and in her final year at school ...eek !!!

  • Kim 8.8.08

    thanks Megan..
    you're in :)
    hehe 17 year old daughters are far more expensive than 19 year old sons..IMO..
    I think it has to do with their taste in clothing...

  • durano lawayan a.k.a. brad spit 10.8.08

    Hello Kim,

    Happy Birthday to two beautiful women - one young in years, the other young in idealism. Will it be a big double celebration like something preparatory to her 18th birthday?

    Have a very Happy Birthday Kim. You deserve to be happy - for yourself and your kids. Charlotte is certainly a pretty young woman and I wish her a happy birthday and a great life ahead of her.

    As for you Kim, "may you live as long as you want, and may you never want as long as you live". :-)-- Durano, done!

  • S. A. Hart 11.8.08

    Happy Birthday, Charlotte!

    i thank You God for most this amazing
    day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
    and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
    which is natural which is infinite which is yes

    (i who have died am alive again today,
    and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
    day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
    great happening illimitably earth)

    how should tasting touching hearing seeing
    breathing any-lifted from the no
    of all nothing-human merely being
    doubt unimaginable You?

    (now the ears of my ears awake and
    now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

    ~ e.e. cummings ~

  • Kim 11.8.08

    thank you Speedy

    thank you Durano...
    Charlotte's 18th will be held at a restaurant next year...this years party was a 'teenage' girly party..with lots of movies...toasted marshmallows and lollies :)
    thank you for your wonderful birthday wishes :) :)
