My 32nd Birthday

Yesterday I celebrated my 32nd birthday.  Despite beginning my morning working on our will (something we have been putting off for a while), the day definitely got a lot better!

As we were bundling up to go out sledding in our neighborhood, we received an invitation from our pastor/friend to head over to his house to go sledding.   Even though the roads were pretty icy we ventured out anyway.

We arrived a little early, so we stopped by Mickey’s parents for a few minutes before heading over to “the hill!”  While we were there, Mickey’s mom snapped a family photo for us.

Being 7 months pregnant, I didn’t do any sledding, but captured lots of photos of all of the others having plenty of fun!

It’s hard to tell from these pics, but this hill is very big.  It was so big, it only took a few trips up and down until we started using a 4-wheeler and Gator to take people back to the top.

After a few hours of sledding, Mickey and his dad went up to the church to help shovel the snow off the steps and sidewalk.  Mackaylan and I spent the afternoon with Grams eating lunch, playing board games, and taking naps. 

When the guys returned home, I was surprised with a dozen red roses.  Aren't they beautiful?  I am not someone who always receives flowers for birthdays, holidays, etc. so I was very surprised!

After that, Mackaylan spent the night with Grams and Pop O so Mick took me out on a date for my birthday.  I loved being able to get dressed up after being in “snow clothes” for a few days, and was even able to wear my new outfit that Mickey bought me for my birthday, which included my new pair of black boots. 

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Outback and then came back to the house to watch a movie.  We didn’t want to be out too late because the roads were expected to refreeze, and we didn’t want to risk it. 

It's Always Fresh in the Outback

It was a perfect ending to a perfect day!
