Family values

I've just gotten done celebrating my birthday with my family. My almost-4-year-old daughter decided that I should have a treasure hunt for my presents, so she and my partner carefully hid them around the house and gleefully watched as I searched to find them. Then we went up to Connor Prairie to see the baby lambs and make gingerbread and glory in a beautiful Indiana spring day. Had dinner at Bruge Brasserie (try it!) in Broad Ripple and then stopped in to Big Hat Books (shop there!) where we each got to select a book as a special treat. It was a lovely day and I went to bed content and warmed by my family's love.

How could we possibly be a threat to "family values"?

Happy Birthday, Ellen! How old are you now? 25+x? (If you express it in algebra you can be any age you need to be...) Your family is wonderful - and so are you!

39? I'd have guessed 29. But the answer to life, the universe and everything is 42...So, you're almost there!

Happy Birthday Ellen! I hope you have many more just as fabulous!

OMG!! I've been the answer to everything this whole year and didn't even know it? Can I skip my birthday in June and continue to be 42?

Many happy returns, Ellen! I envy ya your family.

Happy belated birthday, Ellen. Thirty-nine?...just a baby you are -- and the best is yet to come.

Congratulations on a birthday well spent and a loving family that made it so.
