The Actual Birthday

Cake1My actual birthday, almost two weeks ago, was pretty fun.  A friend of mine came over and took me out for a pedicure.  Meanwhile, the kids were home decorating not one, but two cakes.   We had a few friends over for dinner and played games.  It was fun and low key.Cake2I received a bunch of cool gifts too!  That’s always a plus since I love presents.  I’m not gonna lie I love getting presents!  I love getting cards and little packages in the mail.  Who doesn’t right?1Tri3

One of my gifts was a tripod.  I can’t believe I went so long without one.  I guess I never thought  I needed it.  However after photographing a few large families I wished I had one.  Now I do.  I was like a little kid on Christmas morning; I couldn’t wait to get it all set up.  Then we played.  I let the kids take a few photos too.  They thought it was great!

Well that concludes all of the birthday fun!  Thanks for all the cards and awesome gifts.  I loved them all.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful birthday! Wish I could have been there to celebrate, too! I sure miss hanging out with you...even if it was just every once in awhile. Sending lots of hugs your way!

A happy birthday to you Jan!

If that tripod gets us a few more glimpses of you with your sweet family, I give the guy that figured out the perfect gift for you an A+.
