Happy Birthday to me!

One last post for the night...I promise. But don't forget to read the other 5 posts under this one. We are cancelling our internet tomorrow (hopefully, I've never done that before and I'm not sure if it will be hard or not) so I'm trying to catch up on my blogs because I know it will be awhile before I get around to doing it again.

We celebrated my birthday on Saturday since the actual day fell on a Sunday. Our friend Lacey and Ron McHargue baby sat for us (thank you, thank you, thank you). Dan let me sleep in and then he took me out to breakfast at the Old European. It was really really good. A little pricey, but I highly recommend it. It was crazy though. I don't know what was going on, but it was incredibly busy.
We spend the next two hours wandering around shopping and spending birthday money. Dan bought me flowers for the porch that I can plant. I'm really excited, and hope the weather cooperates sometime in the near future so my tomatoe plant doesn't freeze. I also got some nice serving dishes. I'm very excited about these, which I find really funny since I don't cook. But, now if I have a nice event like a baby shower or something, I have serving dishes. Wahoo. I would have taken a picture of them, but Dan was being awesome and put them away. They aren't really handy to get out, so I didn't bother. Then we picked up the kids and visited for a bit. It was definitely nap time for them, so down they went. I cut Dans hair while we watched a movie. His hair doesn't look so good. Our clippers broke and I couldn't cut his hair. I only use the clippers on the bottom, but without them I was completely lost. Oh well. Dan then studied for his finals and went to the gym. When the kids woke up I took them over to the Mickelsens so Ira could watch them while Jeniel and I picked up Beth and met Erin Wilmot and Danielle Huston at Cougar Country. This was for Visiting Teaching. Our group isn't that big, but since Jeniel is moving we invited some more people to come along. It was good to get out and spend some time with the girls.
Sunday morning Dan let me sleep in again (isn't he wonderful). Then he made me breakfast in bed. Church was definitely a struggle, but my secretary told me to go to Relief Society today and it was wonderful. I had calmed down by then so the rest of the day went well. I had a great birthday. Thanks for everyones phone calls, e-mails, and birthday wishes.

This was just too cute and I didn't know where to put it. Caden sure loves his daddy and he sure loves to read.

Happy birthday! You are looking as happy and as beautiful as ever. I sure miss you.

Sounds like a great birthday! Happy 25th sista.

PS-these word verification things are so hard to read. They run the letters together and I'm shocked when I actually guess which letters they use.

I'm so sad you're canceling your internet connection, I love reading your blog entries. But thanks for giving me 5 to read in one day. :)

Are those ebleskivers on your breakfast plate? I haven't had those since I was a kid growing up in Redmond. Dan's hair looks great! I love the mother/daughter and father/son pictures. We love you all so much! I too will miss the blogs and especially the pictures. Mom J
