Today I turned 31 ... and even though I know that's not old, and I don't feel old, it sounds really old compared to the last times in my life I most vividly remember ... if that makes sense :)
Anyhow, the day was made special by all family and friends who offered birthday wishes ... thank you all and I love you very much!
Extra special was the cake that Madeline decorated to look like a purse ... not only beautiful, but delicious as well :) We took this picture using the camera's self-timer, that should explain things :)
Another treat was my friend Jill taking Benny this morning so that I got an extra long nap with Annalise this afternoon (which I guess indicates my age, if I'm counting naps as treats).
This evening my husband and I even get to go out to dinner together, sans children (mostly ... Annie always accompanies us as I am her food source and the mood to eat strikes her quite often) courtesy of Jane who is coming over to sit with the kiddos.
