It wasn't enough that I got to spend my birthday on vacation, but when I got home I was made to feel even more special.
When we got home, the house was decorated by my mother-in-law and the kids...well, mostly Nate really. Can you see the balloons and streamers behind my kids showing their patriotism?
And then came the cake, onto which Nate INSISTED that that we have the proper number of candles. Both my moms worked quickly to make sure they got all the 30 some odd candles lit.
It was smokey, but with the help of the kids, we got all the candles blown out in one try.
It truly felt like a very special day. How lucky am I?
