February 24th – last Friday – was my birthday. My twenty-fifth birthday. Why does that sound so old to me? It shouldn’t. I mean, I have three kids already.
Three kids and I just turned 25? How in the world did that happen? Anyway…
I had a really good day. It was a Friday, so the girls had school. My mom offered to take them for me so I could have a relaxing morning.
Well, semi-relaxing. It’s hard to have a fully relaxing morning with a 6-week old. But it was good.
Then Joe picked Camryn up for me. That afternoon Camryn and Jace and I went to Summer’s school to help with her snack sale/fundraiser.
Then we went home for a bit. Joe surprised me by getting off work pretty early, and then the five of us went to my parents house. My mom had asked me what I wanted for dinner.
Why, steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, sauteed mushrooms, and green beans of course! It was delicious. And everyone else had pork chops, which made it even better.
And then there was pie. I requested it instead of cake… it’s a blueberry banana pie with homemade cool whip. I will have to post the recipe, it is amazing.
My aunt Susan never misses my birthday. My cousin Richard doesn’t ever either, except he had a show that night. Have you heard his bands’ new song yet? It’s amazing. Please go listen, I’m so proud of them!
We spent the rest of the evening just hanging out. The girls always love to dress up over there. This was my dress-up dress when I was little. Isn’t it fabulous?
I really never imagined I’d be 25 with three kids, a husband, a dog, a house….. Really, I can’t wrap my mind around it at all. But that is my life, and I’m unbelievably happy. Hopefully this year is just as amazing as the 25 before it!
