Happy birthday to me.

That's it folks. I'm 32. My birthday was on Sunday, and it was a wonderful day.

First: I called my parents to congratulate them on my awesomeness!

Then I got this amazing card from my boys.

Ben is really good at making cards.

Out tuk ride to church.

Thomas and Jack wanted to try on my glasses.

They are so adorable.


I work with the kids between 18 months and 12 at church, and so I spend a lot of my time with these awesome kids.

After church, we played a very competitive game of Charades! It was the ultimate.




That was my special day. Oh, and I got to sleep in AND take a nap. It was pretty much perfection.

I think the only thing missing was a birthday treat, but I didn't mind- I wasn't really in the mood for a treat. However, I did ask my parents to celebrate with some pie from my favorite pie place. I also reserve the right to call on my need for a birthday treat at any time, cause that's how I roll.


P.S. The dog is on loan from a friend on vacation.

I just love how you make your birthday be awesome! With the help of your boys of course :) It's funny how when we're little we expect big things from our special day, but when we grow up we make our day special with anything that comes our way :) Happy Birthday, Emily! I hope you have an awesome year with great great changes!
