One Thing At A Time

Since Christmas is right around the corner, I thought I'd better hurry and post some pics of my 33rd Birthday.

December is a rough month for all our birthdays to be in.  With Bear's UPS schedule in over-drive, it leaves very little time for us to spend together as a family.  This year, we snuck in a quick birthday lunch to The Cracker Barrel and it was perfect.  I don't need my birthdays to be big, but I get majorly bummed out if they are just like every other day and we don't do anything special.  So this was super fun, because I was thinking we wouldn't have time to celebrate.

 The bonus present was that River behaved magnificently.  I don't remember an eating out experience that has been this relaxed in years... 2 years to be exact.  Usually we take shifts eating, while one of us is running around the restaraunt with River trying to keep him entertained and contained... kinda like a rodeo clown.

 I hope it is a sign of things to come, but it was probably just a birthday present to his Mama.  Well I'll take it. I guess a good family photo wasn't on his list of things to give.

Nothing beats birthday cake, except FREE birthday cake.  Makes it taste that much better, I promise!

I'm really glad your schedules worked out so you could have a birthday celebration even if it was lunch at the Cracker Barrel.

What? Did she just say "even if it was lunch at the Cracker Barrel"?!? I say, "Especially if it's lunch at the Cracker Barrel"! Nothing rocks a birthday more than an all you can eat buffet.

I hope you have a super sweet year 33!
