"One Year Older

...and wiser too, Happy Birthday, to you!" I love the primary songs. They are so catchy and there is a song for most occasions :) Anyway, yes indeed it was my time of year to become another year older. How do I feel (I've always hated this question...am I really supposed to feel any different?)? Well, I still feel like a high school kid it's true. Ah well, maybe the wiser part will come in eventually. While my actual birthday was on Monday, we did most of our celebrating on Sunday, which I suppose is a little backwards, but Dan started a new rotation on Monday, so we did cake and ice cream on Sunday. We've been busy packing so I don't know where the camera cord is for pictures so no go there. Kember wanted to get me an elephant for my birthday...which would require a "huge huge" bag. So Dan got a really big bag (trust me, it was big) for the Wii game he got me. I also asked for the Les Mis music, so he downloaded that (and he made sure I knew that he bought it, not pirated it :) and burned it onto a CD for me. The cool part however was that he made the CD cover and booklet with family pictures. He used crying sad pictures because everyone was supposed to be "miserable" Get it? The cover had Kember on it, and it was supposed to look like Cosette on the cover of the original CD. Very clever I think. On my actual birthday the kids decided to celebrate it by being sick. Yea, Caden threw up twice and was laid out the rest of the day. Ahh well. It's just another day after all.

What a thoughtful birthday gift! That is so clever and cute with the Les Mis. CD. I probably would have gotten all teary-eyed. Cuz I'm like that. :)
Aside from the puking kid part, I'm glad you had a fun birthday!

Tarah your birthday gift from us will be waiting for you in Aurora because I didn't want you to have to pack it and bring it back with you to Utah. Hope everyone is feeling better!

That picture of Kember is too cute. And Dan is pretty cute to do that too. (Although, don't tell him that I said he was cute... I know how Jeff would react to something like that...)

I hope you had a great day/week, and that everyone is feeling better.
