My Birthday

Sabbath was my birthday, we had a pretty quiet day, after church we went to Unos for lunch (yum) then we came home. For some reason I was REALLY tired (don't know if it was finally "catching up" from last weekend or what, so dh sent me upstairs for a nap and spent the afternoon playing w/ the girls and such. Once I finally woke up we ate a light supper of leftovers and then went to Dairy Queen for dessert (ice cream is MUCH better than cake in my opinion LOL). The girls, however were disappointed w/ no cake, but decided it was ok when I told them that Mama & Papa are coming next weekend and Mama will bring (or make while she's here) a cake LOL. Then the girls gave me their birthday presents (dh's gift to me was a new (used) Storchenwiege baby wrap that I ordered, and got, a couple weeks ago LOL). The girls each decided on their own what they wanted to get me (though dh asked me for feedback on specifics, shhh . . . don't tell the girls LOL). L decided she wanted to get me a prenatal exercise video, they weren't able to find locally the one I'd planned to get (10 Min Solutions) but found another one that is broken down into 15 min segments so hopefully I'll like it as well LOL. She made a point of telling me, as she gave me her gift, that "you better appreciate this, becuase we looked EVERYWHERE to find it" LOL. A had decided she wanted to get me a new Bible. When dh asked for feedback I said I'd been wanting to get a pocket sized Bible and preferred KJV or NIV version. A chose a very pretty light green & brown pocket Bible. It's "Today's New International Version" but I can't fault dh for not noticing the T in front of the NIV, I didn't notice it right away either LOL. So far the change I've noticed is changing "man" to "human beings" (in Proverbs, and I assume elsewhere, where man is used to refer to people in general) which I find awkward to read but I can live with it. . .

Anyway, it was a nice, quiet, family birthday, just like I like best :) I love that the girls are old enough to know what they want to get now :)

Happy Day! Glad you know what you like - I'm a cake girl, but if someone wants to substitute Cold Stone Sundae's, I could do that too!
