Do the math and you will know how old I turned yesterday! It really was a delightful day:
brunch at "The Chef" with Nate's parents, who stayed and made crafts with the girls,
I got pretty flowers from my husband,
We sewed letters onto the girls' superhero capes (see below),
and some college girls put it together that I would be home alone in the evening, so they came over with this cake made by Erica:
and a bag of movies for me to choose from. I picked Little Women. I hadn't seen it in years, and did not expect to cry FIVE TIMES! I'd forgotten how wonderful it is! Something about a culture with no TV, simple living, and shared work and lives is so inspiring to me. My "amish tendencies" coming out again. :)
Thanks to everyone who called and sent cards or gifts for helping to make my birthday really fun! I look at my life and think I'm pretty blessed.
