My birthday was last week. And what a week it was!
Tuesday: Dr's appointment in the morning, and the Young Women from my ward dropped by for a surprise party that evening including cupcakes, ice cream, and the game Apples to Apples (which was interesting since these young women didn't know what half the cards were - including who Jack Nicholson and Keanu Reeves are).
Wednesday: My bookclub was at my house and while we didn't technically celebrate my birthday, it was something for me to look forward to all day.
Thursday: Had a nice dinner and birthday cake with just my little family. Ice cream cake! Watched a silly movie with Richard and Ruthie.
The kids made this great collection of art for me with the help of Nanny Amy.
Richard gave me the most rockin' rainboots I've ever seen in my life!
My parents gave me a sweet necklace stamped with my new life motto: Choose Happiness.
Friday: Invited two of my best girlfriends over for some good chatting, Boggle playing, and general catching up after a long somewhat-isolated summer apart.
Saturday: A small hiatus from partying on, except for eating leftover ice cream cake.
Sunday: A big combined Worth birthday party for me, my SIL Kelly, and my sis Ruthie. Loads of fun. And more cake - this time chocolate!
Whew! I milked that for all it was worth!
Now just 8 days to go before the best present of all - Samuel!
