Happiness is...


... being wished "Many Happy Returns."

Actually he didn't say that.

Instead he made me a treasure hunt while I was in the shower, instructed Rob to bake a cake, and made sure the present didn't escape. We don't call her Houdini for nothing.




And now we spend hours watching her hide in her shell in the middle of the floor. Then we turn away for a 11 seconds and spend more hours searching for her. She is REALLY fast.

Jane - thank you for waiting so long to let me be first. You are truly most considerate.

Houdini is beautiful, Cali. Can't wait to hear about all her "firsts" as she grows up in your household. I'm sure it will be an adventuresome childhood, errr turtlehood. Whatever.

What a GREAT gift (Ray)! And so is the turtle.

I think it's funny that you, who can't bear dust bunnies, now have a house pet that roams. She's beautiful.

A turtle! What fun! That probably tops any gift we could ever come up with. Try not to loose her before the kids get a chance to meet her. I am sure they will love it. I saw the post the other day but forgot to tell them. Hope you had a great birthday! Melissa
