The Great 28


Yesterday was my birthday! I'm 28 now, and according to Dan that's a "legitimate age." Yeah, a few years ago he decided that I got married too young (and who's fault was that, i ask...) and that 24 is the perfect age to get married. But when I turned 24 he decided that I was, in fact, 4 years younger than the average girl. He came to this conclusion based, I believe, solely on my dental history... So, finally, I'm 28, and he's no longer robbing the cradle.
It was a good birthday. I played with little boys, fed little boys, walked in circles around my house with a fussy baby, played with little boys, repeat again and again. We planned on dinner at Pizza Hut followed by carrot cake, and man was I excited! But, alas, my birthday dinner was doomed from the start.
You might remember my little weather problem. Well, it was my birthday, after all, so I really shouldn't be surprised that the weather wanted to "celebrate" too. Instead of pizza at a restaurant, we ate tuna sandwiches in our downstairs bathroom. That's right, while the tornado was forming outside our front window, we had a little birthday party in the innermost room of our house. The guests: Dan, Jen, Jake, Camden, and of course Mandisa, too. Yes, it was very crowded and VERY hot. Oh, and very loud, since my boys don't really have any volume control and thought the whole adventure was pretty cool. But I couldn't have asked for a better birthday party. I was with my favorite people and then after the storm passed I got my yummy carrot cake!
Oh, and then I stayed up literally all night reading Twilight. Wow.

Hi Jen - happy birthday! It sounds like it was a fun one. I've had a good time back up to speed on your blog, and Gavin is thrilled to see pictures of the boys. Glad to hear you're enjoying Twilight - I did too.

Take care,

Happy birthday! Glad you guys are okay (after living in TN for three years, I'm terrified of tornadoes)! So you're liking Twilight? Stephenie Meyer is my favorite writer. ♥ Actually, I'm doing a giveaway on my blog of her new book. Come on by and leave a comment! :-)
