March is a special month in my family. One, my family is Irish. Two, my birthday is in March. And three, my sister's birthday is also in March AND on St. Patrick's Day!!! Lots of reasons to celebrate! (Sidenote: doesn't Sean look like Terri?)
Actually, my mom went into labor with me during my sister's third birthday party. It was on a Saturday, a few days before her "real" birthday. Right in the middle of the party, my parents had to leave for the hospital. Tons of people at the house, presents still had to be open, and the candles still needed to be blown out on the cake. It was a good thing that my mom left when she did, because I was born a half hour later. Family & friends stayed and kept the party going, but I guess my sister was still a little upset. It took a few years for her to forgive me for ruining her party, but now she's my best friend! Every year we celebrate our birthdays together and every year we have shamrocks on our cake (or leprechauns, or rainbows & pots of gold).
Anyway, March is also a month of lots of rain, but towards the end of the month you can start to feel spring in the air. I'm so looking forward to Spring! Happy March (next week)!

This is my SON, Sean. I entered this photo in the weekly contest at I Heart Faces. This week's theme is "Silly". Click on over and check out all of the "Silly" photos. They're sure to make you smile!
This photo was taken about three years ago. My mom was fed up with doing her hair everyday and was into her "wig phase". Sean looked at my mom and said, "Grandma, your hair looks longer and poofier than yesterday". She said, "Oh, it's just my new wig" and then proceeded to whip it off her head and throw it in the air! The boys thought that this was the funniest and coolest thing ever. I guess they never knew anyone that actually wore a wig, let alone someone that would whip it off in a mili-second.
Sean asked to try it on. I took one look at him and thought, "oh my God! He looks like my sister"! I had to get a picture. This is what a girl of mine would look like. The picture is silly, but just thinking about the look on my boys face when their Grandma took off her "hair" makes me smile.
And, YES! I did ask Sean for his permission before I posted this.

Here are the rules:
1. You must link back to the person you received the award from.
2. You have to nominate 10 bloggers who are deserving of this award!
I'm new to blogger land, although I have been known to lurk on a few pages for the past few months. I really don't follow a lot of blogs, except the ones that I have listed on my blog roll. Some of these folks have already received the award, but I'm going to give them the same award anyway, just for fun.
The "When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade" award goes to:
** Chris at Miltyslot because he's my biggest cheerleader! He supports me in whatever I want to do; no exceptions whatsoever. Now, I'd like to say that I'm the inspiration for his blog. When I started my blog, Chris had lots of ideas ("Kath, you should do this..., or "make your blog look like that"). I so nicely (okay, harshly) suggested that he start his own blog and do whatever he wanted on it! Thus, Miltyslot was born with its first and only entry. Thanks, hon' for putting up with me for 18 years!
** Life with Kaishon - because she seems like such a nice, loving person and mother. I don't know a whole lot about her, but the kids on her pages looks SO HAPPY! She also got me hooked on the I Heart Faces site. It's a website for all levels of photographers to enter their favorite face photos. It's a lot of fun to look at all the creative beautiful photos. Check it out.
**Mitzi at The Mandel 5. I know J-lo already honored you with this award, but I thought that you deserved two! When you think that your life is busy and you just can't fit another thing in...read Mitzi's blog! She is Wonder Woman! I don't know how she packs it all in. Just reading about one of her adventurous days makes me tired. Also, I want to be her when I grow up. She takes the most beautiful photos! I don't know what it is, but she seems to capture the child's personality in every photo. If I could take a photo half as good as Mitzi, I would be one happy girl!
**Jason at The Jason Show. For no other reason other than he makes me laugh! He also seems like the sort of person that you could tell your deepest darkest secrets to and he would never judge.I just have to get my sister to start a blog. Now, she is FUNNY!!!!!! How 'bout it, Ter?
