A wonderful birthday full of little wonders

This week I celebrated my birthday and although nothing big was planned, I took the time to appreciate the little things in the day!  I woke up to my beautiful girl giving me a handmade birthday card.

Then my morning cup of coffee….

And then we were off to take Madeline to school!

Things I was grateful for on the ride that morning:

  • The sun was out!
  • There were some good tunes on the XM Radio and I was grooving to Stray Cats!
  • Lucas laughing at Charlie & the Chocolate Factory on the DVD player.  Cute that he seems humor in the very strange Johnny Depp!
  • His sweet little voice saying “vroom” when he sees a car.

I spent most of the morning by catching up with friends on facebook and by text. 

Lucas decided a nap was not in the cards that afternoon but I did manage to squeeze in a 30 minute yoga practice and a shower.  That is huge!!!

Chris left early to pick Madeline up from school – extra bonus!!  They showed up with presents and cupcakes.  We took a quick drive to town and went for a birthday dinner at Domingo’s.

Lucas wasn’t so happy after dinner.

Then home to unwrap gifts, eat cupcakes & chat on the phone with friends and family.

Madeline put all her bows on daddy’s head.

Thank you to my family for making today such a good day!

Love you all!
