My birthday fell on a Friday this year...and that's a lot of fun! I wish my birthday would fall on a Friday every year. Then we could celebrate for the whole weekend again! The day at work was filled with beautiful flowers:
All kinds of the sweetest little kindergarten students you could ever imagine bringing in all sorts of cute little home-made cards, and treats, and even a coffee mug. They were as excited about my birthday as I was...What a happy day it is when it's your teacher's birthday:)
And my co-workers...how thoughtful. We had all sorts of yummy treats in the louge, and all kinds of laughs...they sure made the day fun for me!
When I got home from work I was greeted with birthday hugs and wishes from my own sweet family...and oh, how fun that was!
Chad and I went out for dinner with our good friends:
The next morning I awoke to this wonderful sight in the kitchen:
And then we carried on with our day...we decided to do a little ice fishing. Adi went from this:
Oooohhhh, she's a busy one...this little princess:
Their cousins came up to the lake and were fishing right near us, so Eli and Adi both insisted on joining Nathan and Andrew. I had to sneak over for a couple of pictures:
Thought this was pretty cute:
We worked a little more on some cute Valentine leggings. Adi has been all about these since I've had them made. They look so cute on her!
Sunday we went to my Parent's house for a yummy birthday dinner. We are still a little spoiled like that. My Mom and Dad invite all of us and our families over for each of our birthdays. Can't pass up a delicious home-made meal!
Even though it was for my birthday, the kids had all kinds of fun going through their Valentine bags:
And they got to share a few hugs with Baby Alivia:
Eli is the oldest cousin...all 4 years of him, so he thinks he's a pretty big boy when he can carry Alivia around:
And even though I've never been a huge fan of ice fishing, we had soooo much fun out there last weekend, that we took full advantage of a 4 day weekend this weekend, and spent both Saturday AND Sunday on the lake again! Adi just had to help Rick catch a fish:
And, Yes, they each had to kiss the fishy Good-bye!
Even though it's over a week late- I had to share a quick re-cap of my wonderful birthday weekend so I can remember all the sweet, straight-from-the-heart details! Thanks to my co-workers and students, friends, my family, and of course Chad, Eli and Adi for making it wonderful! Another year older and wiser....now just to figure out how to slow time down a bit before my next one when I hit the big 3-Oh!
