My Birthday

Thursday, May 6, 2010

My birthday was yesterday, Cinco de Mayo! It's always a fiesta on my birthday :) Every year Bill renews my subscription to Us Week.ly (don't tell our friend Nat, he's a youth pastor and thinks it's a trashy magazine and we like to keep up our wholesome image ;-) ). He also gets me another gift because that one doesn't really count because it's expected. Lucky for me! This year he got me a new point and shoot camera!! I love it because my other one takes horrible grainy pictures--you can tell when I've used it if you go through past posts on my blog. I love my Nikon SLR but it's much too big to bring on vacation and I wanted one I could just throw in my pocket so I could take pictures at the park etc. So, of course I had to test it out and so this post is going to be photo happy :)
I decided to try a self portrait, since if I don't take pictures of myself, if I die, my kids won't know what I looked like...
Oops, this is better (but nice teeth above, huh?)
I have ape arms so am pretty good at taking pictures of myself and the kids together.
Bill sent me flowers at work. I love when he does that. I feel special. Aren't they lovely?
This was my birthday card from him. I made it extra-large because if anyone can tell me what it says, I'll give them $5...
Todd n ML showed up. They didn't know it was my birthday. They felt embarassed. So as punishment I am posting this picture.
We talked them into staying for cupcakes
Bill made them and the kids decorated them. Well, Bill decorated the ones with the red writing. I am doing the same $5 offer for that one...
This is what the cupcakes looked like unfrosted. Bill's not sure what happened...
But Todd approved
So did Marylou. I told her this picture was a good angle and she should practice it for her upcoming wedding pictures.

Rori liked the hats and wants to keep them for her birthday!
Thank you, my dear hubby, for a lovely day. Next time you get me a camera, though, warn me to put a little makeup on since I am pretty sure this is the most pictures of me that have been on my blog the whole year!
