My sweet husband

I have a very SWEET husband and family. I had a great 30th birthday yesterday.Started with the kids and Matt letting me sleep in and then bringing me breakfast in bed. I then got my presents which included season 7 of friends, two movies, some earings and a pedometer for tracking calories and steps when walking. My absolute favorite thing was he wrote "30 Things I Love About You" it was the sweetest thing I just got misty eyed and then I embarressed him because I showed it but I was so proud of him and it was so sweet. Then I got time to relax why they cleaned house and set up the back yard...I knew something was up and I figured my parents, aunt and two of our friends Adria and Erich and Leia and Glenn were coming over but I had no idea the extent of the plans. At 4 lots of friends showed the ones I mentioned plus several other families it was wonderful my dad cooked a huge barbeque everyone took home food and there was still food. We played teather ball let the kids swim. The last couple didnt leave till 10. It was wonderful. My aunt and mom did a basket of all 30 stuff...30 bags of microwave popcorn, 30 candles, 30 bottles of nail polish, 30 hair scrunchies, 30 gladioli bulbs, and on and was very cute. They had 30 baloons and a big cookie from the cookie company and cupcakes. I was very suprised and it was great!

Turning 30

Today I turn 30!...Not quite sure how I am handeling it yet. Bless my husband he has went all out for my 30th birthday. Just something about turning longer in my 20's. My husband and kids let me sleep in this morning and then brought me breakfast in bed and my husband wrote "30 Things I Love About You"...I will cherish it, reading it brought a tear to my eyes it was wonderful and thoughtful. He has been hush hush planning all week and I still dont know what is going on at 4 today only that something is and that there sure are a lot of chairs in our back yard! The suspense is driving me crazy as I am one of those that must always know what is going on and plan things to a T.

I am going to try to be updating my blog more and sharing more about my life and experiences...turning 30, raising kids, having a child with developmental delays, being with my husband, working, balancing, and doing all that I love to do.

Returning Home After Vacation

Vacation...I have been planning for weeks, anticipating loved it when I got there but when it came time to come home I couldnt wait to get home. We had thought about stopping halfway home, but no I was ready to be home. We just returned home from a few days in St. Louis, MO my husband nor I had ever been. So we took the kids and met a friend of mine and her family there. We had a great time we went inside the arch, rode the riverboat, went to the zoo, shopped, went to the Magic House. All in all a lot of fun. Now we are catching up on laundry. This is my first blog so I am not sure how to do it or what I will be writing about. My son Braden will encompass al ot of my posts I am sure as with his special needs he encompasses a lot of time, my daughter Brittney is always saying something that I will want to share, and as she enters first grade I know that will only increase.
