My Birthday Party

Princess in stripes, me lining up the team.
I had an amazing birthday! It started early, about 6:45 when I checked on Princess to make sure she was getting ready for work. We had to be up early anyway since Curly had an 8:00 basketball game. Unfortunately, I had to let my sweetie take him while the Dog Walker and I headed for the fire station to pick up our Bountiful Basket. Princess had planned to pick it up but then she got this extra shift at work and didn't want to say no.

So at 8:05, we were the first ones there for the 8:15 appt. We spent a few minutes helping out, stacking and breaking down boxes and adding the last few things to the baskets. We were pretty excited to each get an extra five-lb bag of potatoes for helping! Once we were loaded up, the Dog Walker dropped me for the second half of Curly's game. He did a great job!

Back at the house again, Drama Queen offered to run me over to Dunford to pick up donuts for everyone for breakfast. It was fun visiting for a few minutes each way. Then I embroidered a blanket for Scout's little friend for her birthday party this morning. Prima Donna and Crafty headed out at 10:00 for a service project at the Community Center.

Just before noon we picked up Scout from the birthday party and and drove the short distance to her basketball game. It was a rough team. The first half was awful! Our team only scored one basket and the kids were pretty discouraged. But I told them I didn't care if we lost, I just wanted them to make two baskets in the 2nd half to celebrate my birthday. They took this challenge seriously and managed to score 6 baskets! I was so proud of them! I think the other team was a little stunned...

Best. Carrot. Cake. Ever!
After the game the Drama Queen took us all out to lunch at In and Out Burger. Yum! I love their fries! We had one more game for the day. Sport played at 4:00. It was a good game and they won by about 6 points. When we got back to the house, my sweetie announced that the router had gone out and we would not be able to use the internet if I didn't run to Staples and pick up a new one. We couldn't have that! The Dog Walker had homework to do and I promised to update you guys, so it was back on the road.

Bossy and Drama Queen
When we finally got back to the house, my little Sis and her family and the kids were arriving and it was time for dinner. My sweetie made flat iron steaks, penne with alfredo sauce, roasted vegetables and homemade rolls. (I know, but I told myself this morning that I was going to eat whatever I wanted today and worry about it on Monday.) It was delicious! Especially the rolls. :)

I opened gifts and we ate Princess's amazing carrot cake. Honestly, I don't know if I've ever had one that was better! We talked and visited and enjoyed each other. One of my favorite gifts was a cassette tape from Teach. She recorded a bunch of silly stuff and then just things from a random day. It was so good to hear her voice! Although she seems to have acquired a Texas accent...

Me and Little Sis
It was a wonderful birthday! Thanks for all of your happy wishes.
