Mom's Birthday!

Well, I turned 25 today... for the 5th time! I got to stay in bed until 7:45am and wrangled whiny kids all morning. We met my friend Angie and her kids at Caesarland for lunch. Fun for everyone. Angie bought me some very cheery, yellow mums and a bag of DELICIOUS chocolate cookies from Trader Joe's. What a great friend. Just what I needed. I put two kids to bed and kicked one down to the basement to play/watch a movie and I actually took about 1/2 hour nap! Went shopping for ballet shoes and clothes for Fia and then met Tadj at Red Robin for dinner. We actually had fun there this time. The kids were happy and even ate their dinner and MY ice cream. Tadj and Sofia baked cupcakes last night, so we came home, frosted and decorated them and devoured them (Man, birthdays are fattening!). Now the kids are in bed, Tadj is cleaning up, and I get a few minutes to myself. What do I do?... BLOG!! Here are fun pictures from Red Robin. Ahhhh, my last year as a twenty something! I hope it's a good one!

Me and Sofia waiting for dinner. Why does she get the tiara? Aren't I the princess today?
Tadj and Grayson goofing around.
Scarlett enjoyed my balloon more than I did, so I let her have it. Am I a good mom or what?
Me with my yummy Sundae and balloons.

Birthday snuggles from the kids. Grayson is a CLINGER!! I think that's a Hemingway male trait. Look out girls!!

Happy Birthday!! The pictures are so great...huge smiles. You can't get a better birthday (as a mom with young kids) than lunch with a great friend, a nap (however short), dinner with hubby, and a little time to yourself!
