Happy Birthday to Me !!!!

Has it really been 27 years?
Looking through my baby pictures I see many features that I see in my children. This baby picture of me reminds me alot of Emily when we first brought her home.

Kory is currently working out of town so it's just the kids and I to celebrate my 27th birthday. This morning I talked to my mom and a couple of friends who called to wish me a "Happy Birthday".

My children were playing so nicely together I pulled out the sewing machine and finished a few projects.

This afternoon we went to a friends house where we ate ice cream and birthday cake that she had made and just hung out for a few hours.

On our way home we were talking about what to fix for dinner. Both Hunter and Madelyn wanted chicken. Why is it I'm more then willing to fix a nice good filling dinner when Kory's around but when he's gone I don't feel like cooking or fixing anything other than peanut butter sandwiches, quesedillas and mac and cheese? I don't paticularly like any of these but I manage until he gets home. Hunter overheard me saying I didn't want to cook so he suggested we go to Panda Bear (Panda Express) his favorite. I personally don't like the place so we settled on KFC and we all got a piece of chicken.

When we got home our annoying buzzing doorbell was still ringing letting me know someone had come by and rung the doorbell. Expecting a few packages for the buisness I was quite surprised to find this from another friend sitting on our doorstep. To the kids utter delight they had 2 birthday cakes today.

So despite the bummer of having my husband out of town what did I get for my birthday ? A day of fun with friends, 2 birthday cakes,

a son who built his mom a castle,

a happy, peacful baby,

and a loving daughter that made me cake and ice cream.

So what can I say. The day is ending with 3 beautiful happy loving children, and a "Happy Birthday" phone call from my husband. Thank you all who helped make this a special day.

HI, so we're your loser siblings who didn't call. I put it off the moring of, cause I thought Jonathan would want to talk too. Then that night at 10pm we both remembered we had never called. So I'm sorry, he did call and leave a message the next day though. Also I mailed a card early that week, so maybe it got to you by your b-day or hopefully the day after. Well hope you enjoyed it. Sorry Kory wasn't home- that's a bummer! Take care!
