My Happy Birthday!

Monday was my 28th birthday! I had a GREAT birthday! First of all, this was my first "facebook" birthday...sah-weet! So many birthday messages sure makes a girl feel loved! My cousin Rachel called me and said that she was taking her 3 year old twins over to see my Grandma Odie and wanted to know if I wanted to meet her over there. I had been meaning to take the kids to see her so I told her we were on our way. Grandma surprised me with lunch and a cake!! It was her special strawberry cake with strawberry icing. OH MY! It was definitely a birthday treat!
Plus, the kids enjoyed spending some time playing together.
Matt came home and helped me get the kids down for naps because he is super sweet like that.
Then for dinner we went to Red Robin because they sent me a birthday burger and I am all about the savings these days! It was yummy!
My handsome hubby and I....I was printing some photos recently and realized that we were not in any of them. Haha. So, I had the waitress take this one.
Since I went on my actual birthday, they brought me a birthday sundae too. Lilly ate most of fact, she might have insisted that it was "mine!".
Reid, on the other hand, preferred drinking water....I should have known he was sick then. I took him to the doctor Tuesday after naps and it turns out he has the hand, foot, and mouth virus. He is feeling much better today! And Lilly still hasn't gotten it....pray that she doesn't get it either please.
I was so blessed by so many sweet friends and family members with calls, messages, cards, and gifts. Matt and the kids got me the stuff in the picture above. I was SO IMPRESSED by their thoughtfulness--I LOVE LOVE LOVE it all! Matt noticed that my hog t-shirts were too big so he got me some new ones. He also picked up on the fact that I really enjoyed wearing the jewelry that I borrowed from my sister and mom to go to Dallas so he let the kids pick out some jewelry for me--a necklace, earrings, and a bangle. I cleaned out the car really good last week so he got me a new air freshener. Then, I am always complaining about how heavy my purse is on Sundays between both of our bibles, both bags for the kids, and other purse junk so he got me a small bible and a highlighter specially made for bibles. Oh, and Lilly picked out the brown fleece jacket for me. Do I have the best husband and kids or what??
While I was taking a picture of their gifts Lilly kept saying "cheese" and then I went to take the picture and she held the baby up and said "baby cheese". So here it is!
Then, Bubby walked in and said "cheese" for the first time and we got this one too! All of this picture taking is paying off!! Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! I felt so special and loved all day long!!

I'm glad you had a good birthday! I'm sorry I couldn't make it for dinner the other night.

Caedmon's had Hand Foot & Mouth twice. Apparently it's one of those you can get multiple times, just FYI. :) I know that makes you feel better about life.
