Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, I'm a little bit older now. Not sure I feel any wiser. Monday was my bday, and looking back, it's been a really crazy year. Getting pregnant, Circle of Friends, having a baby, moving to Kansas...you could say it's been one of my more interesting years. Of course, there have been downs and ups, but I think there have been more ups, so that's good. This bday turned out to be a good one. My parents and sister came up to see me. They brought gifts and a cake (which Anna helped to frost oh so cutely). They helped me unpack some boxes and get things settled, and just hung out with us, which was great. I don't think it was the most relaxing vacation for them, but I was glad they came. Then I got a package on Monday from my super sweet friends at College Hill. It was full of cards and little gifts. It totally made my day! I put the kids down for naps and went through each one savoring memories about my friends and loving everything they sent. Then today, Ty's gift arrived. A POPCORN MACHINE!!! If you can't guess, or don't know, I LOVE popcorn. I really think I could eat it every day, and never get tired of it. I've always told Ty that I wanted my own machine someday, and today was that day. It's beautiful, and it made an absolutely delicious batch of popcorn. All in all, a pretty great celebration. Now here's to a year of growth and patience, with a lot of fun thrown in too.
