My Birthday!!

Ok, sorry it's taken me a few days to write about my birthday....we've been busy getting ready for and playing with our guests of honor!! Ammon, Kirsten and their cute kiddos are here with us... but I'll save that for the next post!! BTW we are having a blast together... ok back to my purpose!! First of all I wanted to Thank you Kirsten for doing that post for me. I definitely wouldn't have done it for myself, but it was really fun to read all my beautiful birthday messages!! You are all so sweet and I'm grateful to have such good friends!! You all have made me feel so loved.

Ok....so my birthday... I woke up the kitchen all decorated with a big birthday sign and streamers(LeGrand you are so cute!!) After Brayden went to school the rest of us went to kick boxing. Then I got ready for the day, the second I was done my good friend Candace Carter knocked at the door..she told me that I had about a 5 minute warning but a bunch of girls were all coming over for lunch. Candace had picked up a bunch of food and we all had so much fun hanging out. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful friends. Girls time is so fun, I love it!!!!

I was able to go and volunteer in Adelyn's pre school class. It was so fun to be with her, she was thrilled that I came with her on my birthday. She felt so special it was cute!! I love being able to go and help in the kids classes. Adelyn you are a doll!! Thanks for being so excited to have your mom with you!!!
LeGrand arranged with Candace to watch the kids so that we could go out to dinner. It felt so good to go out with LeGrand. I'm the luckiest girl in the world. We went to one of our favorite places...The Trolley...Yummy!! It was fun, while we were eating, my little brother called, he had recieved his mission call and opened it while we had him on speaker phone. Brasilia Brasil!!!! Oh exciting!! We are so excited for you Paul!! You will make a great missionary!! The people around us at the resturant got a kick out of the conversation too! :)

After a wonderful dinner, We went back and did cake and ice cream at the Carters house with Brandon, Candace, Holly, Jen Baldwin and her girls!! It was fun... The only problem was that I forgot our camera. I was soooo bummed!!! So sorry this is mostly writing!! Boring I know!! Next time I'll get better pictures of my birthday!!

I had a wonderful birthday.... Thank you everyone for your comments, your phone calls, the cards, the money(mom & dad(s) ;) and Grandma and Grandpa!!) I'm excited, LeGrand got me a mammoth size sleeping bag for our big trip this summer!! I'm totally excited about it!

I'm so grateful for my mom, who gave me birth. I still remember all to well how not pleasant pregancy and child birth is... Mom you are amazing. Thank you for going thru everything for me. Thanks for being such a good mom and loving me and being such a good example to me! I have so much to be grateful for!! Thank you Candance and Kirsten for making my birthday so special... and a big thanks to LeGrand... You are the sweetest husband in the world.. He had each of his classes call me through out the day and sing to me. What a cute husband!! Thank you for treating me like a queen!!

There is so much evidence of how loved you are, wow, what an awesome birthday! You deserve it. That is amazing that Paul is going to Brasil, another Potuguese speaker, maybe the rest of us should try to learn it too! I love you Becca!
