Birthday Fun

Yesterday I turned 29! My husband surprised me with 29 beautiful roses! They smell and look amazing!! I love them!
Our neighbors, the Vila's, wanted to help celebrate by bringing over pizza for dinner.... (totally against our P90X diet, but how could be say no?) So, the least I could do was make cupcakes, right? After all, it was my birthday, might as well blow the diet and go all out?!?!

So, of course, with the mention of mommy's making cupcakes, I had instant helpers. And I honestly can't tell why they love to help me mix up the cupcake batter.... can you?

What? Is there something on my face?
So, after pizza, the kids seemed to gravitate toward Nick...
After some snuggle time with Uncle Doober, it was time for candles and singing and a super fabulous cake that Steph surprised me with. It was a sinful spice cake with a layer of cheesecake between the layers, nuts and raisins... heaven! (Did I mention TOTALLY against our P90X diet...shhhh)
Uncle Poncho led us all in the birthday song, only to stop everyone halfway through to start over and not make it sound so funeral procession-like. So it was a very upbeat, crazy fun birthday song TAKE TWO!
And yes, there was ponytail whipping!
Then there was candle licking...

And the rest is history! It was a great day! Thanks to you all for the birthday wishes!!!! Tonight Nick is taking me out to eat at a nice restaurant and a movie. This weekend, I get to enjoy a day to myself and go shopping! Yay! I have the best husband in the world!
