So, like a month ago I officially hit..."30-something"...31 to be exact. My morning started out by waking up to THE BEST Birthday present...ever! And the day only got better from there, when Fred left work early & picked up some Starbucks & beautiful flowers.
He & Lambie quickly got to work on my Birthday Cake!

I'm gonna lick it... ...even without the frosting they were so moist & delish! Frosting is serious business!
Time for candles...the cakes not big enough, Daddy!
.Ta Da.
But, before they let me dig into the cake...we chowed down on the Hubby's DELISH lettuce wraps & fried rice.
If your hubby cooked like mine, you wouldn't eat out either! ;]
.Ry Guy & the Birthday Girl.
Lighting up the room...and there wasn't even 31 candles.
Haha...I'm lucky we didn't set off the smoke alarm!
Since Kai Bear was outa town on my Birthday, we headed to The Cheesecake Factory to celebrate after picking her up from the airport! BREATHE Lambie!
He sure does love his 'chicken burgers'...
I'm alittle late on this, but a HUGE Thanks to my Hubby & Lovins for another fabulous year & wonderful Birthday...and to all my friends & family, thanks for all the Birthday wishes & means the World!

Fred got the fire pit going, so we took the party outside.
Julia & Ryan snuggin'!
It was a long day of fun, friends & food...which is precisely why it's my favorite holiday!
My Lambie, all tuckered out...
Every Thanksgiving we have so much to be thankful for...this Thanksgiving, we had alittle extra! ;]

Disney on Ice

.Princesses w/my Princess.
This time, last year...the Lovins & I were watching Nemo on Ice, trying to keep our minds off the fact that Daddy had JUST left. So this year, when I found out it was Princesses...I knew we just had to go again. The 10:00am show on Thursday was perfect. It gave Lambie & I something special to do while the big loves were in school. Even though she wasn't feeling too hot, she still had a blast and I actually REALLY enjoyed myself!!!
k, got my goodies...lets go!
.Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. A whole new wooooooorld...
6 of the 7 Dwarfs...where's Dopey!?
...there he is!
.mesmerized. Don't eat the apple...doh!
.Beauty & the Beast. It's one of my favorites...I'd LOVE to see it on Broadway, again!
[hint hint Santa]
.The Little Mermaid.
Cinderella is off to the ball...
Quick pic, before we headed out!
She's got her hands full.
But, before we could make it to the car...we had to stop & munch on some snow cone!
Just another awesome day...what can I say!?

Children's Book Festival 2010 just when I thought I was getting on top of the blogging, life has other ideas! Which is fine, cause we certainly don't mind the chaos...but, now I'm over a week behind for the first time in the history of blogging. [I think, I'm pretty sure?!] I really can't believe
.Off to the Book Festival @ Forsyth. We ran into Ryan's buddy [next door neighbor], Ethan.
Busy checking out all the fun, not sure what to do next!?
One of the crafts using rolled newspaper!
Daddy & Ry made a!?
So many fabulous Authors were there...Anna Dewdney [Llama Llama Red Pajama] & Melinda Long who wrote one of Ryan's favorite books [Pirates Don't Change Diapers]. Chatting w/Ry while autographing his new book, How I Became a Pirate!
Kailee even found one of interest...
As always, there was plenty to
After the crafts and buying a couple books, we headed to the overly packed playground to burn off some more energy before heading home!
He's so crafty. A random piece of tanbark he thought made a perfect witches nose!
Hopefully, it won't be another week between blogs...*fingers crossed*
