Earth Day's my Birthday!

I feel kind of funny posting about my birthday...I almost didn't do it but hey, this is a record for future generations :)

I'll break it up into categories for you:  

Yummy Foods:

 Mom brought a couple of little individualized portions of ice cream over the day of.  It was so sweet!...and they were absolutely yummy!

Remember earlier, I mentioned that I had loved the white chocolate carrot cake m&ms that were out at Easter?  Every place in town had sold out by the time I ate them and wanted more.  
My cute sister in law found some at her Wal Mart, knew I loved them and grabbed 6 bags for my birthday!  Bless her!  I need to try and space them out over the next several months.  Only two of them  have disappeared so far...and it's been a whole week :)

 My very good and long time friend took me out to lunch a few days later.  I chose to go to a pizza place that has crazy different combinations.  I had had this once before and loved it so much that I ordered it again.  It's a potato/leek/white sauce pizza.  Pretty Awesome!

My mom is famous for her pies.  Four our family celebration she made my fav...Razzleberry.
As we were getting ready to go home she asked if I wanted to take some home.  I told her that my diet started the next day :)...but maybe I would take a small piece.  She informed me that she had a whole pie to send with me.  WHoahhhhh!  How can you turn that down?
I'm going to have to share it with my neighbors since the rest of my family doesn't really do pie.

Thanks everyone for the yummy foods!

Kind and Loving Family:

My in laws came and brought dinner the night after my birthday.  It was fun to have them come.  The kids think the best game to play with Grandma Nancy is "Duck Duck Goose".  Ben is darling when he gets up, runs around, and does the routine!  He gets it...for the most part :)
Thanks for being a good sport Nancy!
 This is the celebration at my parents' home.

My Grandparents.  I love 'em!

I wish I would have gotten a picture with my parents.  Mom, we need to make that a tradition along with the Grandparent picture...after all, you're the one that borned me :)

Other Gifts:

So many people were so kind and brought sweet gifts.  Everything from bread, brownies, gift cards, money, candy, etc.  Thank you all.
Lots of phone calls and emails too :)

These were the flowers I received from Andy, Mom, and my good friend Trina.

I thought my brother's present was pretty clever...
Isn't he cute?!

The day itself was nice.  Andy is always good about bringing breakfast in bed.  Thanks Hon!  Ben didn't have school so he and I hung out and he let me indulge in some sewing.  The other kids had an early out day.  We were pretty low key.  We watched "I Love Lucy"s for a while until Andy got home extra late from parent teacher conferences.  He stopped and picked dinner up so I wouldn't have to cook and then we played some Tenzi before the kids went to bed.  
It was pleasant :)
Thanks again to all the nice people who made it so special!

I will leave you with a couple of super cute pics of Ben and Grandma Kidd at my party:)
