Yesterday was my birthday. I was so spoiled by John. He took the day off work and treated me to a day of surprises.
First we went to IHOP (or IPOP as Jack would say) and had breakfast. The kids were great and it was a fun way to start my birthday. Then we took the kids over to our friends Jeff and Gretchen's house and dropped the kids off. Then he took me to my next surprise, lunch and a facial and manicure!! It was so relaxing, just what I needed.
Then John took me to one of my favorite places to eat Zelda's pizza. John had invited my brother and sister and mom and Jeff and Gretchen there too. It was so nice to be there with the people I love.
Afterwards we went to Heidi's and I opened some presents and ate a yummy cake that Heidi made.
Here we all are. Next week is Heidi's 30th birthday, so we will all officially be in our 30's. YEA!!! we made it and were all in one piece.
And last of all this beautiful blanket that Heidi crotched for me. This was the first thing she ever crocheted. It started out as a scarf, but it got way to long, so she decided to just keep going and make it a really long blanket. It is amazing and really long and super cozy. I LOVE it. I love that she put so much heart into it (she's been making it since September). I will treasure it, it's one of the most beautiful gifts I've ever gotten.

What a wonderful day!! This sounds like a perfect birthday and one you spent doing exactly what you wanted and needed. A facial would be grand.
