Happy Birthday...

to me! US!

Yesterday was my 33rd birthday... I'm pretty sure! A few people posted on my facebook page that I was only 32, so I had to double check and count on my fingers and toes a few times, but yes, I'm pretty sure I'm 33 now. ;o) This birthday was a little bit different than other years because not only is Frank deployed but my mom is not here either. That was a little bit of a downer for me.

SO I decided I would plan my own party. I invited a few friends and their kids to dinner last night... unfortunately, Colorado's ever-changing weather brings sinus infections and colds and the party fizzled out quickly. After Kennedy's dance class last night, I planned on coming home to fix some dinner for the kids and settle in for bed. Kassidy wasn't having any of that though lol. She insisted that we go out for dinner anyway since it was a special day, so the kids and I went out and it was really nice! :) We had a nice meal and fried ice cream... we even picked the right restaurant because they give all the kids magna doodles to play with while they wait. Kellsey was thrilled! ;) Definitely going back THERE again! It turned out to be a very nice evening!

The bonus to my birthday, was that my cousin Becky and her husband Josh had their second baby girl, Delanie Jo last night!! I was so excited to get the text updates from California about her arrival and praying she would be born before midnight. She arrived around 7:00 and is healthy and happy!! Best present I could have received! Congratulations Josh, Becky and Kylie and welcome to the world Delanie! We can't wait to meet you!!

Happy Birthday!!! I have a blog request. I would LOVE to hear more about your move to Colorado. I've lived in the same house since 1979 (isn't that the year you were born LOL). And the house before that was 5 houses down the street LOL. When I got married in 1993..we bought the house from my parents in 1994...so I've NEVER moved. I find it SO exciting (and a bit scary at the same time) to imagine packing up and moving some place new. How do you figure things out. How do you meet new people. How do you find your way around. I love to hear more about the adventure (if you are taking blog requests LOL).

Know that I'm here praying!!!
Psalms 63:1-2 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Happy Birthday. You are double digits. LOL. I am the same today...except just a wee bit older than you.

Happy Belated!

I seem to remember that facebook said your age was 32. Weird. I didn't mention age though but am thinking others might have seen what I saw.

Happy belated birthday! Delanie is adorable. Is that a scratch on her cheek? My youngest scratched himself in the exact same place when he was a day old. He still has the scar! But I think it's cute.
