Another year older...

So, I had a birthday and I suppose I'll post some pictures of the "big day". But for the record, I don't like putting pictures of myself on my own blog and I'm not a big birthday fan. It's just another day. No need for any special or extra attention. Please. But to make certain people happy (mom) here are some pictures of my birthday shindig at Grandma and Grandpa's house on Memorial Day. It was a beautiful day and dinner was delicious. Thank you Mary!
Every candle in Mary's drawer. She had exactly 31. See how well she plans ahead?






Yay, a KitchenAid Mixer!!! Thank you Grandma Barb, Grandma Mary and Aaron. Now I can make 6 1/2 pounds of mashed potatoes or 9 dozen cookies in one batch! It's true, it says it right on the box. No really, I'm VERY excited to have one. After 10 years of marriage, I suppose it's time for me to start baking. 
Reese is thinking about those 9 dozen cookies I was talking about. See that look in her eyes...that's the same look her dad gets when he spots chocolate chip cookies.

Reesie loves her cousin Natalie. Always a big smile for her.


Two little boys covered in chocolate frosting. I think it's safe to say they were having a good time.


Ella and Maddox sharing a bowl of cake sprinkles. I think they were huddled together, trying to quickly eat every last sprinkle before any of the other kids noticed what they had.

Those pictures are so cute! Love Ella and Maddox, sneaking away with the sprinkles. :) That's awesome about the Kitchen Aid- love those things.

Happy Birthday Coop! I actually thought about you on Monday. I have always remembered your b-day was on the 25th. Wow isn't it crazy that we are in our thirties now. Time flies.

Happy Birthday Girl!! You look amazing as always. I really wish you were closer so we could see you more. I am happy things are going so well for you. I hope your birthday was great. I miss you.

I love my kitchen aid, even though it is boring white. I use it all the time!

You're right, I couldn't find any pictures of you on your blog. You still look the same as I remember 13 years ago.
