Last night my Mom and Larry (with a little help from Darrell) had a surprise get-together for my birthday at their house. My BFF from high school, Kristin, was there with her family and Doug and Kelly (our dear friends who were on our blog before) were all there along with Mom, Larry, Kyle, Nate, Darrell and I. My sister and her family and some other family friends were invited but were all sick. Yucky illnesses are going around everywhere! We had a great time (even though I was dead set against a "party") and had yummy Mexican food and cake. Mom made the best guacamole...that's usually Tanya's job!
The camera battery went dead (tired from the Alaska trip) before the candle-blowing-out-present thing. I did get a couple of pictures of Kristins darling kids. I know the photos aren't great, it's hard to take pictures of moving targets. This is Genevieve (2) and Nolan (4)...they cracked us up the whole night. I don't think they realized they were the entertainment, but we were all happy!!
Thanks for the nice gifts...you guys are awesome!!
