I know this is a little late, but I needed to write it down for my records.
This year my birthday was one of my favorites. I felt like the whole first half of the month was just one big celebration.
My birthday was on Sunday this year and so Ryan and I celebrated on Saturday. It started Saturday morning. Ryan got up with the kids and took them to McDonalds so I could sleep in. Then when they got home Ryan said I could go shopping or do whatever I wanted, until it was time to go to dinner.When I got back we cleaned up, dropped the kids off at Ryan's grandparents and we went to dinner at Red Robin(I had to get my free birthday burger). We took some ice cream back to Ryan's grandparent's house to eat with them and play games.
On Sunday, my birthday, my niece Mia was blessed. So I was able to spend the whole day with my family and share my birthday with Mia and her special day. My family sang Happy Birthday and we had cake. The best part is Ryan took complete care of the kids all day!! He got them dressed, changed every diaper, fed them, and got them all ready for bed. After the kids were in bed Ryan let me watch two chick flicks, and didn't complain once. :) It was a nice relaxing day! My mom and Mia
Then on the following Wednesday we had a luncheon with some of the other ladies in the ward who have December birthdays. It was fun to get together and get to know them a little better. Thanks Alicia for putting it all together.
The next Sunday Ryan's family had a little party for me, and his mom was so nice to make me a yummy chicken and rice dinner. Then for dessert we had my favorite: Chocolate brownies with ice cream. I am so lucky to have such great in laws.
It doesn't end there. On Thursday the 11th my friends, Lisa, Amy, Ashly, and Ulia took me to Chile's for appetizers and Paradise pie. When we were done eating we didn't want to go home so we headed over to Target to do a little shopping, and be a little silly. Thanks girls. It was so fun! Ulia, Ashly, Lilly, Amy, & Lisa
And to end my wonderful birthday (or should we say two weeks?) Me and my best friends from high school,Jill, Megan, & Hayley headed up to Park City for a fun overnighter. We had so much fun shopping, eating, and reminiscing. I had a blast and this was one of the best birthdays ever! Jill, Megan, Hayley
Thanks everyone that made my birthday so FUN!
