Happy Birthday To Me…

Today is my birthday.. I have mixed emotions about my birthdays. I mean I’m thankful to be here another year.. but I’m not amused about being older. I know.. I know some people say it means something to be older.. but to me I think our society makes people of a certain age irrelevant. I have felt irrelevant the majority of my life.. so it’s a shame NOW that I finally think I understand some of it, only to find out that I am thought of as irrelevant. Does that make sense?

Enough with my wining.. lets see what was going on here today…. The cutest thing happened last night, #4 slept on the floor in my bedroom so he could be the first to tell me Happy Birthday.. How sweet is that? I took ALL of the monkey’s to lunch today and we ran a few errands… I don’t know why I didn’t take very many photos of that…

I went to dinner with a few friends to celebrate my birthday.. and to celebrate our church’s Christian Ed Director (she’s awesome) 🙂

I received this super cute.. handmade scrapbook.. (this is just one page of it) I love it!

After dinner I headed home to have some cake with the family 🙂

Don’t you love the banner? I’m not sure why it says “SUZIE” instead of “MOM”.

#3, #5, #4 showing the super cool banner and paper chain they made.

This is one of the cool things I got for my birthday.. No not the dork on the left..(you know #2)

That’s a Starbucks Insulated tumbler. It’s acrylic, and is made to look like one of the Starbucks glasses they handout.

I’ve wanted one for awhile.. but couldn’t find one. Except on eBay where they go for quite a pretty penny..

(what is a pretty penny?)

OOOH.. I wanted some new RED rubber scrapers.. and I got them!

(I keep telling The Man I am a simple woman.. with simple needs)

Here’s 4 of the 5… waiting for the cake..

#4 eyeballing my cake..

Some of my loot…

Who doesn’t want some pink shox? (besides The Man.. he thinks they are UGLY)

I also got this firm pillow top mattress. Which #4 and #5 love..

Look how nice it looks made…

It was a good birthday. I’m going to work on that whole being irrelevant thing..
