My Birthday

I'm grateful for an amazing husband and great family and friends who make birthdays fantastic.

* Jayden started my birthday off with a bang by making sure he could spend time with me as much as possible by waking up THREE times during the night.
* Ryan helped me recover from the bang by putting up with my grumpiness of not sleeping and letting me get a couple more hours of sleep by watching Jayden.
* Our neighbor saved all of the pictures of the last four years (this story to come in another post)
* I got to go downtown and have lunch with a friend that I had not seen in nearly 8 years!
* My parents drove up an hour to wish me a happy birthday!! Thanks mom and dad. It meant a lot.
* My grandma and grandpa sent me a card in the mail. They always remember. And the card always manages to arrive on the exact date of my birthday. Always something to look forward too.
* Ryan and Jayden got me a wok, a dvd and candy... and the biggest birthday card you have ever seen.
* A fabulous girl I work with worked my graveyard shift on Friday so I could enjoy my Saturday- and 3 hours of my Saturday night shift so I could enjoy my WHOLE birthday... and sleep :) .. And so she could make an extra 100ish dollars
* Our very good friends took us out to a hilarious show where our friend gave an excellent performance. Way to go Kirsten!!
* Ryan got me cake an ice cream :)
* Ryan's parents gave up their date night to watch Jayden so Ryan and I could go to the show. Thank you guys!!!

Thanks for the birthday wishes...

I was going to do a post like I do for Jayden when he turns a month older. To tell everyone what I've learned and accomplished in the last year :) What I like and dislike... however at 1 in the morning I am lacking the creative juices... maybe next year :)
