My Special Day

Happy Birthday to me! It seems like I was just blogging last month celebrating reaching the big 3-0; and now it's been a year and my birthday is here again. I have no idea where the last year has gone - I think it's the fastest year I've ever had. And I just have a feeling that they're going to go by faster and faster.

In celebration of my big day, we had a birthday party for preschool. The intention was to celebrate everyone's birthday (or un-birthday) since they have either already passed or don't fall on preschool days. The kids were excited about it from the first time I mentioned on Monday and they all came today ready to party. We decorated party hats, played limbo, pass the hot balloon, pin the tail on the donkey, red light green light, and danced around. Snack was chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles. I had everyone bring a small gift for a white elephant exchange. We exchanged gifts and had a great time! I'm partying like that from now on. :)

Rhett and the boys have been good to me today. Rhett came home after seminary this morning and fixed me cinnamon rolls and orange slices for breakfast. He then brought home flowers, pizza and me a delicious sub for dinner. He had to leave with Zach for Zach's soccer practice, but I have a feeling he's bringing birthday cake home. YUM!

I knew they were chocolate cupcakes by the frosting on Maija's cheek! :) And did she just happen to end up with the big PINK bottle of bubbles or did you play sneaky? Happy Birthday- tell Rhett to school Ben on how to treat his wife on her birthday.
