My birthday came and went without me having a free minute to post about it. I'm one of those pre-Christmas (December 20th) babies that has always struggled to have a day to herself amid all the Christmas celebration. Add my husband's birthday on December 22nd and we have a very busy week.
This year my friend Shannon brought me Thai food for lunch -- such a wonderful gift, especially since lunch is my least favorite meal to cook. Our kids played and we attempted to give our three year olds hair cuts. We did okay, just ignore the bald spot on Emitts head. He's a boy and hair grows quickly. My mother-in-law came to watch the kids in the afternoon and I was able to get my annual hair cut. My husband then took me out to a fancy dinner and I was able to feel like a growny-up for the night. The kids baked and decorated a cake with grandma. We didn't want them to wait up for us so they celebrated without me, blowing out the candles themselves.
All in all it was a good day and over way to soon. I'm now excited to see what 34 and 2008 have in store.
