I had an amazing birthday! I like the birthday celebrations that last for more than one day, if you know what I mean!? I got just that!
I had an amazing dinner celebration with my family, Matt’s family, and my bestie and her family on Saturday. Some of my favorite people plus some of my favorite food all together! I got to request the menu, so I went with chilli, my mom’s 7 layer dip, and buffalo chicken cheese dip. Might be a wierd combo, but it’s seriously three of my favorite things! My mom made my childhood caterpillar cake and we might have had a bon fire outside and smores to top it all off. That is an ideal night!
Than Sunday I woke up with my boys bringing me flowers in bed! How perfect is a picture of my sweet lil boys rushing to their mom’s side with a handful of gerber daisys (some of my favorites!). Life is good. Matt made an incredible breakfast and we enjoyed some down time as a family carving pumpkins. It was a complete blast! Caleb really carved his own pumpkin. I was so impressed! I drew the smiley face he requested, and he cut it out! J enjoyed sawing ridges in his own pumpkin aswell. My sweet girl crawled around us and was as perfect as she always is by just being her.
A year ago, I mentioned to Matt that I wanted a certain necklace (as pictured below on my NECK!) once we had our girl…and he remembered, found the store, and ordered it for me! I am obsessed with it! He also made me a video of our kids…that totally made me cry!! It is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! I will post it as soon as I figure out a way to! I really do have the best husband ever! He might have also wrapped up my van keys to remind me what else I got this birthday….as if I could forget!!!
To top off this celebration my sister, Joni, watched the kiddos for us that night, so Matt and I could go to a movie and than my free dinner at Provinos! Love that place! What a gift to have family love me so much to celebrate and make me feel so special.
I had so many other sweet texts, cards, gifts and wishes on facebook that contributed to making me have a wonderful weekend! Thank you to everyone! I am one blessed girl!!
