One day later, one year older

So I had a birthday. Not a big milestone one, but a good one just the same. This one was in the style of the old days. We got together at my Aunt Joann's (my godmother) and most all of my moms 12 brothers and sisters were there. Only 3 weren't. Amazing. And we all had a great time. It was so enjoyable. Really enjoyable. So that made it great. I got some amazing gifts too. The icing on that cake. The party started at 4, but we got there and hour early. Then it was so enjoyable we ended up staying until 10:30. Which was great except we didn't get back to Henry until one this morning. LONG NIGHT driving.

Our Christmas was fantastic too. The kids got great gifts and had plenty of time to play with them. That worked out so nicely for us. Everyone (my brother, his wife and son; Darrell's mom, dad and brothers; and my mom) comes to our house and that is so much easier than packing up our 3 kids and prying them away from their new toys.

Aubrey, I hope your birthday was fantastic. We are just now home from Washington, but your present is in the mail, so keep your eye out. :) Glad to hear your Christmas was great, too.
