Today was my birthday, I will share some of the things that happened in our home with you all.
Michael gave me this handmade necklace...I thought "Ahh...how sweet". It was made out of lego pieces. How creative of him, I thought.
"Hey, can I look at it?" Christopher asked. So, I held out the necklace to him, then he shouted, "Hey! Those are MY legos!"
So, Michael made me this one instead.
Rachel wanted to do the same thing, but she burned out at the 8th bead. She asked me to tie the ends and put it on, and when I did it, she put both her hands on her cheeks and said "Mom you are so beautiful!!".
Christpher said he was thinking about what to give me but he forgot right after Thanksgiving. Funny kid...
I heard this story from my husband later on
My sweet hubby gather the children and wanted to discuss where they should take me for dinner.
He jokingly suggested, "How about Chuck E. Cheeses?" (those of you who are outside the US...Chuck E. Cheeses is the place kids can play games or hold birthday parties.)
Then the kids got really excited and said "Yeah!"
My husband thought (Uh-oh,I need to steer this in the right direction)
"Well... do you really think mom will like Chuck E. Cheese's and thier pizza for her birthday?"
Christpher and Rachel were quite but Michael was still hanging on by a thin thread of hope and said, "But, they have salad too!"
When I heard the story I couldn't stop laughing. What the kids don't realize is they are already giving me so much. Even the craziest days they give me something to smile about.
Aaron came home earlier than normal, then they took me out for Chinese.
I opened the gift I bought myself two months ago (I promised Aaron I would not open it until my birthday).
The cards they gave me made me laugh and tear up a little.
I want to say thank you to the friends and families who gave me nice birthday wishes. My world is a better place because of you all.
I took a self portrait:
One year older, I guess I will find out if I became any wiser too throughout the next year. If I can have one wish for my birthday... I want for our little family to be together forever. There are many other small wishes, but my family makes me happy the most. That is my birthday wish.
