My Hubby bought me two gifts; one on the silly side, one more serious. The silly one was a collectible figure of… Robin the Boy Wonder on his Robin cycle! I laughed and laughed! It was the 1960s-1970s Robin, with the bare legs and elf shoes. I’ll have to add it to the Justice League Batman that’s on my collectibles shelves. The other was a copy of Barry Manilow’s recordings of songs from the 1950s. I’m looking forward to adding it to my music. My brother gave me, a Magic Bullet, of all things. It’s a super blender-chopper-whipping machine. He has one and likes making iced mochas for himself. The kids had to try it out right away of course. I was very surprised and delighted. (Though I loved my Hubby’s gift better…..)
We gave the girl a journal of sorts. I thought I’d gotten one that was plain sheets, but no such luck. I told her she could exchange it if she wanted to. Inside, I tucked a bookmark with a fluffy gray cartoon cat on it, and a gift card to Books-A-Million. My bro and SIL gave her a gift certificate to Hobby Lobby. She’ll enjoy them both, I know.
Right now Hubby has taken the kids out shopping. His bro (my MI BIL) wanted to go shopping, and the kids wanted to, too. He asked me to go, but I figure that it’s good for the two of them to spend time together (even if they have the kids along).
All in all a satisfying birthday celebration. More later if the muse so moves.
