you say it's your birthday!?

Well my birthday came and went this year! 29 really isn't that special... but this is my last year in my "20's". I have to say my 20's has been my favorite decade so far.... I got married in my 20's.... became a mother in my 20's...... have come closer to God in my 20's....

And really... 0-10 years.... who really remembers that much from those early years? I don't!
10-19.... who's going to say their teenage years were their favorite? Not me!

I wanted to have all my children before I turned 30... NAILED IT! (Unless God has some other plan for us....) I am super happy with 3 kiddos... 2 boys and 1 girl is just perfect for me! My hands are plenty full. But hey God... I'll do whatever you want!

Here are 29 things I did on or around my birthday! (in no particular order)
1. ate a DQ cookie dough blizzard (compliments to my friend RB)
2. helped a friend move
3. enjoyed the beautiful weather
4. ate chinese
5. took a shower!!!
6. worked out (don't worry I showered after I worked out)
7. went garage-saleing
8. enjoyed a beer... or two...
9. did my toes!!!
compliments to my sis for my bday present!!
10. enjoyed some "adult" conversations (just means my older 2 weren't there to interrupt!)
11. watched some girly movies w/ Miss M
12. went the entire day w/o having to touch poop! **

23. spent time with just the boys!
24. went to a park
25. got some sun
26. spent time with my nieces
27. felt blessed

So over all pretty good birthday!!

**this was in reference to other people's poop.... I may have touched my own... not real sure... JDub just happened to be home to help with this :)

Happy Father's Day!... a little late :)

Happy Father's Day to all you daddy's out there! Isn't being a parent wonderful (and terrible sometimes?!) Here's hoping you have a wonderful day celebrating with (or without) your children :)

This Father's Day is also my mother's birthday! So I when I was trying to think of some presents I thought I'd do a 2-for-1 deal. I also figured the kids could get involved!

I was not so pleasant while trying to do this little project though... It was supposed to be fun! But I kind of turned into a tyrant spitting out demands like "keep your hand still! Don't flex... relax... can you just hold on!!" But I apologized... and eventually let the boys have fun just painting on some other canvases I had...

Bubba's favorite color is red, and Ceej's is orange... and well Miss M just got pink b/c she's a girl! I couldn't use her hand... so I tried her little foot. I think one turned out... but you get the point!

It is displayed in my parents laundry room/play room! And I can't help but smile when I see it!

I added a little polka-dot detail (with the eraser end of some pencils) around the border
