Today was my 42nd birthday. Wow, that sounds so old. I remember when my parents were that age, and it seemed so far away. Wrong. It was just around the corner!

Paul took me out for lunch at one of our favorite Mexican places. Then this afternoon, we went over some friends of ours house for a church wide picnic. It was a very enjoyable afternoon. My friend Lisa made a beautiful red velvet cake for me, which is one of my favorites. When we got home, the kids gave me their presents. Paul, Anna and Ellie went together and bought me a nice camping chair since mine broke. It is very comfortable and sturdy. Paul Jr. also told me that he is going to take me out for dinner and a movie- one of our favorite things to do together. Zack bought me a beautiful set of knives in a nice turntable since my knives have all mysteriously disappeared. Hopefully these will stay put!

Ben and his friend Chris

My beautiful and delicous birthday cake.

That's me, always with a baby in my arms!

Daddy and Ben

My new camping chair.

Knives and utensils from Zack.

Ben and Sam

He loves his older brother.

What he was doing when we were cleaning the house: rooting through his dad's closet and getting into all the hunting stuff!! Beware when a 3 year old is quiet!

What a great picture. Glad you had a great time. I may be able to come on Thursday because Randy should be able to drive himself to his doctor appt., but he may be in pain for the way back, I'll let you know.
