Birthday Celebration

Friday was my birthday! 

Here is me when I was only 1 hour old. 

Here is me on my birthday last Friday.

We like to celebrate birthdays a lot around here. Usually the birthday person has a celebration on their birthday and a family party the Sunday before or after their special day.

On my actual birthday we went out for the afternoon. Charming Charlie and Barnes and Noble were on our to-do list.

We went out to my favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner. Then back home for birthday M&Ms, a few presents, and Pride and Prejudice.

In between all the festivities there were calls from my grandmother, my siblings, nieces and nephews, and even a special birthday greeting from my sister's family's new kitten, Dott.

Then skip a day to Sunday and the celebrating continues with a small family party including my sister, brother-in-law, nieces, and nephews and my grandmothers. (We missed my brother and his family who live too far away to come.)

We shared a dinner of tacos (can you tell I like Mexican food?) and then moved on to the birthday chocolate cheesecake with raspberry sauce.

All the little kids went home with a balloon, a lollipop, and a hug from their aunt Kati. (Yay for sweet hugs!)

It was a very good birthday weekend!
