Joshua's birthday

You are growing into such an incredible young man with such a caring heart. 

What a fun day of celebrating the start of the last year in single digits!  We made Joshua a special birthday breakfast and then we headed out for an Amazing day at Amazing Jakes!  Two of Joshua's friends came and we are a party to ourselves!  There was pizza, games and rides all afternoon oh my!

                                           Grandma and Grandpa even joined us for ahwile.

Later that night the party continued with more friends and a pazooki cookie!  Yummy!
One of your favorite gifts came from Papa and Grandma....a really nice chess set.  It has become one of your favorite games and as long as you keep practicing you just might beat papa or daddy.  ;)

Happy Birthday Joshua!  We are so blessed to have you as part of our family!  We love you!

My 40th Birthday

Wow, the big 40!  I knew this day was coming and wasn't quite sure how I was going to feel.  It is a milestone birthday that I am grateful to celebrate but at the same time it is bothering me some.  :)  These last 20 years have flown by!! 
I insisted on not having a big party.  I like giving them for others but I did not really want one myself. My family still spoiled me though.  I woke up early and Nikki took me out to breakfast at Paradise Bakery. Then when I came home my family spoiled me with a bunch of gifts (a new purse, flat iron and jewelry).  Then we went over to the Roger's house and hung out for awhile and then our families went out to pizza at Peter Piper Pizza.  HA HA!  But it was fun.

After we spent the afternoon with the kids, us adults then went to a movie and dinner.  It was a wonderful birthday spent with the people I love
