[ My Birthday! ]

So I've been playing catch up on all our pictures the last couple of days, hence the reason for sooooo many posts! Hope you've enjoyed them though! And now I'm finally getting to my birthday pictures! I turned 26 on Saturday and it was a fantastic day! The weather was beautiful and we got to spend the whole day together as a family! John started the day off right by letting me sleep in and then we got ready and went to the park to play for a little bit. After that we went to my parent's house and celebrated with some lunch and a tasty mousse fruit cake! YUM! After that we went to the pool to soak up some rays and then I got to talk to some of my friends who called to wish me happy birthday while while Angie and John took a nap. Then we went over to John's parent's house to have a BBQ and some super delicious chocolate lover's cake! My favorite! (I forgot to have someone take pictures while we were at my in-laws house, I'll have to see if my sister-in-law took some!) And then to finish the night off, Lauren came over to watch Angie while John and I went to see Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. We both really liked the movie and definitely enjoyed getting out by ourselves for the evening! What an amazing day!

I got so many wonderful gifts for my birthday from both our families and from my friends, but I have to say my favorite gift was from John! He gave me the Cricut Expression!!!! For those of you who don't know what it is, it's an electronic die cut machine. It cuts paper into all different shapes and sizes depending on the cartridges you have. Mine came with the two shown below and I am so excited!!!!!! It's definitely a dream to have for someone who loves to scrapbook and make cards like me! I've been thinking about the Cricut for a long time now, but always tried to talk myself out of needing it, but I've always secretly wanted it! So thank you Johnny for pampering me with such a fabulous gift! I've already used it for a few projects! And then to top it off John got me a very sentimental and sweet card to go with it! I don't get sentimental cards very often so I definitely am treasuring it! Thanks Johnny! And thanks to everyone for making my birthday so special!

I'm so glad you had a good birthday. One of these days we are going to call each other and actually get to talk! I think we are the same pregnancy size...I'm a bit worried about that considering you are 5 weeks ahead of me... oh well. Love you!

Hey Amy! I am glad that you found our blog! Your little girl is getting so big and her hair is so long! Congrats on the new baby! How's it going with this pregnancy? Is it easier the second time because you kind of know what to expect? I am just getting tired of being pregnant-not that it has been bad or anything I just don't like being uncomfortable (and I have the 2 most uncomfortable months coming up) and I hate being paranoid if she is still in there or not when I don't feel her kick for awhile!
So where are you guys at these days?
Talk to you soon!

oh I am so jealous I want one of those cri-cut machines, maybe once we pay off all of our student loans I would feel good about buying one:) hehe. I'm glad you guys are doing well, good luck on that last trimester. 2 kids is better than 1:)
