Good-bye 25!

I promise - I didn't put Nathan up to that cute birthday post! He's so sneaky and it was so unexpected that when I saw it I burst into tears. I DO NOT know what my deal was yesterday! Suzanne says that it's because I'm getting older and it will just get worse! Oh no! I got teary eyed about everything yesterday! I am just so grateful for all the wonderful people in my life! Thank you for all the sweet phone calls, comments and the fun messages I got on my answering machine! I'm sorry that I missed some of your calls! While I quite enjoyed all of the singing I have to say that my dad takes the cake! I wish I had a way to post it because his singing was hilariously awesome!! Nathan recorded it onto his little recorder thing "for posterity". =)

My friend Suzanne totally made my day by bringing me the most delicious lunch and then watching the girls last night while Nathan and I went to see a movie. I finally saw Becoming Jane and I thought it was LAME. Oh well! It was fun to go out with my hubby! The girls helped me make my birthday cake and it was really tasty! We couldn't find any birthday candles so Nathan got creative. =) Haha! What a guy! Here are a couple pictures of the candle blowing and afterwards. =)




I am feeling a little meloncholy that I am now OLDER than 25. I feel like time is just flying by! Well - here's to staying young!!

I'd also like to give a great BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout out to Papa!! I've been lucky to get to share birthdays with him my whole life! Good thing we both love the same kind of cake and ice cream! CHOCOLATE and Carrot!! =)

These past couple months have been jam packed with the birthdays of some of my favorite people! I hope you all had wonderful days!!

I haven't seen Becoming Jane yet, but I was planning on it. Is it really too lame to go see? Bummer. Glad you had a great day!

But I know exactly what your problem was yesterday with all the crying but I wont say it:) haha. Well you once again look beautiful in your pics and I am very jealous. But I love you and I will talk to you soon. But HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY!

Okay, the candle is downright hilarious! That is such the Nathan creativity! You are such my beautiful friend! Just seeing pictures of you makes me ache for a hangout. I am so very glad that your birthday was good. Have a fabulistic day! Oh, Anika starts preschool so soon! It is the best thing ever. Nicholas absolutely loves it and it makes me so proud of him to see him acting like a big boy and learning all of these fun new things. He wrote his name all by himself last night for the first time and it was completely legible. It breaks my heart that our kids have to get bigger, but they are so much fun! Love ya!
