Last night, we celebrated my own little milestone...turning the big 3-0. Actually, my birthday isn't until Wednesday, but Lee had a party for me last night. It was so much fun. What a blessing to be able to celebrate with people who mean so much to me. The weather was perfect and the kids did awesome. That's another thing...a 30th birthday, when you have kids, is almost like a 5th birthday. There were toys everywhere, a coloring and play-doh table - I even debated getting a pinata for them, but decided that I didn't want to clean up that kind of mess after my own birthday party. My mom got tons and tons of food and it was all so awesome and delicious - just FYI, Dierbergs makes a killer birthday cake! Thanks mom for all the work you put into it!
Turning 30 is not that big of a deal to me. My dad always says that the older to get, the younger old looks. Boy is that true. When I was in high school, and even college, I thought 30 seemed soooooooooo old. Like, ancient. But I don't feel old. Of course, I do still have two days to go. Maybe I'll feel old on Wednesday. I'll let you know. But when you have three kids, turning 30 is just not that big of a deal. It's actually kind of nice because now I won't get those looks of pity when people ask how old I am and see me with a baby on my hip and two more hanging on my legs. I had my first at 25 - that's not exactly colonial. So, in two days, I will officially be able to say I'm a grown up. I'll finish this post with a picture from last night. It shows the extreme fun the kids were having. I think I counted 34 for of them! That's a lot of kids. But they all did awesome! Thanks to those of you who came. It was ver special for me to have that time with all of you. I am blessed indeed. Oh, and Happy Birthday to my sister-in-law, Becke, who turns 31 today! Thanks for paving the way for me! Love you. Sorry this post has been so scattered. Tia is running around like a little hellion getting into everything. I need to get off the computer now before the house is destroyed.
