A quarter of a century...

... that's how old i am today!

I've been blessed with a wonderful family and a great group of friends. And they are making this birthday a very special time. It started last night...

We celebrated
a day early since my sister was here and she had to go back to work today.

Yesterday afternoon she took Elijah and I out to eat at Chick-fil-A. We got to talk while Elijah played on the play place. That was nice because we don't always get time to talk just the two of us. When we got home mom had decorated the house and she and Geoff were making a yummy dinner.

I was surprised by Sherri and her parents coming as well as Grammy! How fun!

Elijah helped me blow out the candles on the cake.

My forever friend Sherri, Ethan and I. We missed you Brittany!

What a special evening it was! I really enjoyed it!

Thank you all for making me feel so loved.

Today Geoff and i are going out! Mom said she would take care of the boys for us.
We may go out to eat or go see a movie, i'm not sure exactly. It'll be nice to spend some quality time with my husband.

Happy Valentines Day
to you all! I hope you have a special day!
