My Birthday Weekend

My Birthday weekend started off with a bang! Brian was gracious enough to let me go to a 24 hour crop (scrapbooking, pictures below). Yes that means Brian watched the children from 7PM Friday night until 6PM Saturday night. I only slept for about 1 hour at the most at the church (hoping to get more sleep but couldn't, too wound up). I didn't get much cropping done but got a lot of conversation with adults and made a lot of new friends and connections with people I didn't know well. I need that adult contact for me to be somewhat sane.

Here are pictures of my pages I did at the crop. If you click on the picture you can see it enlarged. Sorry they are blurry but I couldn't use the flash. The first two go together as a double layout.

After a great weekend. Brian got me a card from the girls and a card from him and also an organizer for my paper for scrapbooking. I love it when he listens to me. I had mentioned after the 24 hour crop that I could get a lot more done if I had an organizer for my paper so I didn't have to go through ALL of it each time I was looking for something specific. Brian also cooked me my choice of brick chicken for dinner (YUM,YUM I had it for lunch today and plan to have it for dinner again tonite, BIG SMILE).

The best thing Brian did for my birthday was take off half a day of work to spend with me (It was a surprise to me since he normally comes home for lunch anyway but when he told me he was staying home, I was elated). Again, he had his listening ears on because I mentioned my favorite birthday was when we got snowed in, made snow dinosaurs (mommy and baby), and took a bubble bath. No presents necessary to make me happy on my birthday. Quality time is worth WAY more than something that you can buy.
Just thought I would share about my birthday weekend!!!

Love you all!
