So yesterday was my birthday and it was a good day. Ben took the morning off, and he did some deep cleaning, and told me not to do anything, so I relaxed. Then he took the girls to run some errands, so I got to just relax.
Then they had me open gifts:
Autumn got me a lot of new socks, and I really really needed them (in fact I really needed them at my last birthday) but they made me promise I would throw away all my socks that had holes that I had been wearing.
So I had to throw this pair of beauties out :(, but I can't complain because i have soooo many more new nice socks with no holes!
My mom surprised me and made this quilt and pillow for me, which I was really really excited about! Check out her blog to see more detailed pictues.
Then when Ben got home from work we had some cake with the girls (my favorire german chocolate cake)
And my sweet girls helped me blow out the candles
Then my sister was so good to babysit the girls so that Ben and could go out to a nice dinner with some delicious food! If you are in the Provo/Orem area I highly reccomend the food at Pizzeria 712.
Then we came home and found our girls in Bed and I got to enjoy my surprise gift from Ben:
which I was VERY excited about. I didn't expect anything, because he had some money saved up and donated it to my rug fund (I want to get this very large rug for our front room, and it is kind of expensive, so I didn't expect any other gift, but he fanagled a way to get me another gift)
Then I just relaxed in bed and got to play New Mario, and then I got to watch Ben play the game and love it. He told me if he had realized it was that fun he would have boughten a long time ago, so now we are going to have battles over who gets to use Ben's DS :)
So I thought my birthday was over, but then we got the biggest surprise at 5am (technically not my birthday anymore)
a very cute, but sick little girl, she had more sickness at 6 and 6:30. Then we finally went back to sleep and slept in until 9.
And her very sweet older sister got her breakfast in bed. What cute girls.
So now we are just going to take the day easy. We are all hanging out in my bedroom. We are all still in our pajamas, the girls are watching movies and I am going to catch up on some paper work that has been accumulating on my desk.
So that was my birthday, the end.
