Birthday #32, but who's counting

On Tuesday my friends took me to Buffalo Wild Wings. It was so much fun. There was pop music playing a sports theme in the restaurant and 14 different sauces to go on wings. And Amy cooper made the most amazing chocolate cake I have ever had in my life and she brought along a cooler with vanilla ice cream in it. What a blast.

Even though my 32nd birthday was no milestone, it was still one of my favorite birthdays and one of my most celebrated. On Monday my parents and I went out to lunch with our long time family friends the Kilgores. It was good to catch up and the food at On the Boarder was also pretty good, not as good as the company however.
On Monday night my sister Holly and her husband and kids came up and we all went out to dinner. It was fun to watch Papa open his presents that the kids had picked out for him. My parents got me a mat cutter, so now I can start framing a lot more of Warren's art work and the kids photos. Holly got me a much needed top and a beautiful ornament.

On Tuesday night the kids gave me there gifts. Spencer took them shopping to pick out 5 things they wanted to get for me, I love what they came up with. I got lots of cotton candy and gumballs, a pumpkin, a feather duster, pencils and erasers and a few ornaments. And Spencer got me a new anniversary band with diamonds and sapphires. What a great birthday.

We were laughing so hard when this photo was taken because you can see the determination of Auri to get some cotton candy.

I love how Warren is looking at me in this photo.
He is so eager to see if I like my pencils that he picked out for me.

Hill, I love that smile on Warren's face. Its worth a million bucks. What a fun couple of days. I would like to see a picture of the ring. Auri is a girl after my own heart. I too share an affinity for cotton candy.
