I've had some fun birthdays in my 34 years on this earth.  But I must say that this year's was one of the most fun, special, and sweet ones I've had.  I think the main reason was that the kids had been SOO excited leading up to it.  It was simply a meal made by them, with a few little extras.  But there excitement and desire for MY excitement was too sweet for words.

I stepped out for an hour to read at Starbucks while they got things ready.  When I came home they were "hiding", then jumped out to show me what they had done, which included lots of pictures hung up, table place cards, and a super sweet card.

One of my favorite parts was how they decided they wanted the room to smell good.  And what better way to make that happen then to bring down their shampoo?? I love how they actually opened the cap to let the scent out! :)

Spaghetti and garlic bread was on the menu, accompanied by Cameron reading me some "birthday questions" that Chris had typed up.

Cameron must have asked me a hundred times what my "favorite part of the party" was. :)  I honestly said it was the whole thing because it really was. :)

You are one blessed woman!!!! What a great celebration filled with love! And I bet the shampoo aroma just filled the house when you walked through the door. You'll have to put that idea on Pinterest. HA!
