Well, today is my birthday! I am have to say that I am so thankful for all of my wonderful family and friends! They really know how to make someone feel special! Saturday evening my mom cooked me a great birthday dinner! We had lots of great food and visiting! Hayley, Tye and Ayden, along with my brother, sister-in-law, twin nieces, mom, dad, and Greg ate until we were stuffed!!! We had my favorite "pudding desert" and everything was sooooo good. Today, Greg grilled me a steak and tomorrow (monday) he is making homeade ice cream (my favorite flavor - cherry!) and Hayley is making me a birthday cake. I received lots of birthday wishes from friends and family, both on Facebook and by text and phone calls! I feel so lucky to have lots of great people in my life! You are all very special, and I hope that you know I feel that way! And I really have to say that I have the best husband in the whole world! I love you, Greg! I am so glad that we found our way to each other (almost) 9 years ago. You have made such a difference in my life!
Now, I know you are all thinking about all the food I just mentioned eating, but I will have you know that I bought the Zumba for Wii last week (with my mother's day present, Thanks Kids!) and I have faithfully done it every day, so maybe I cancelled all the calories out! We hope, anyway! I absolutely LOVE Zumba. I know I look pretty silly doing it, but it is FUN! and TOUGH!!!! But it feels so good when you are done! I have been doing the 'easy' beginner level and I did the 'easy' intermediate level today. They are 20 minutes routines and I do 3 of them to work out for an hour! I am really sore, but it feels good!!!!
Now, I have to mention the most special thing happened the other day, it brought tears to my eyes! I was holding Ayden the other day in my lap, and we were playing pat-a-cake and I was holding onto her hands, clapping them together. Then I let go of her hands, and kept saying "pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man" and she clapped her hands together by herself!!!!! It was the first time she had clapped by herself! It was so cute, and so sweet, and it was such a special moment for me, I will NEVER forget it. Grandbabies are the best!
