Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I celebrated turning 32 years old.  Recently Robby and I were having a conversation and he asked what my BEST year (age-wise) was and if I would go back to it.  I didn't have to think very long because I told him my best year was definitely this past year.  Sure, there are some hectic situations with three kids and are times when I think the kids are just trying to drive my bonkers on purpose, but those are shadowed and forgotten by all of the wonderful times we have together.  I feel so blessed and honored to be the mother of those three and the wife to my awesome husband.  I couldn't wish for my life to get any better than it is right now with this little family of mine.

Yesterday evening we had a street party in the cul-de-sac with some friends and neighbors and had the best time. The kids loved running around and playing in the bounce house and the adults enjoyed each other's company.  Christy made cupcakes and a birthday cookie cake so I was surprised by all of the kids singing Happy Birthday.  It was so sweet.

This morning I got a treat when all three kids slept in!  I was wakened by them singing Happy Birthday to me and then was told the "Donut Man" came to our house while we were all sleeping.  Turns out the donut man was Robby who snuck out before we woke up and brought back breakfast, including the way to my heart...a large sweet tea! :-)

Notice that excited little guy in the corner of this picture.  He couldn't wait to get his little hands on a donut.

 We enjoyed having the extra hour today to get some stuff done around the house and then the girls and I went to church and then came back to enjoy more time around the house.  Since we are usually on the go I love some lazy weekend days at home.  This afternoon Gigi and Papa came over to help me celebrate my birthday and we went to a Japanese Steak House for dinner.  Everyone loved it and was entertained, except Harper.  Her sweet, sensitive heart just couldn't take the flames, jokes and excitement so she spent most of the dinner with her head buried in Gigi's shoulder.

We came back home to have ice cream came that Gigi and Papa brought over.  It was a perfect birthday!

Happy Birthday!! Reading that you had dinner at a Japanese restaurant reminded me of how we used to go eat Japanese every week in college! :) Fun memories. I hope this next year is just as great as this past one was!
