Birthday Celebration

Last night we had dinner with mom and dad, finally. It seems like forever that we started talking about getting together for a game night. They made us hamburgers and hot dogs (theirs are the BEST!!) and mom made a delicious three-milk cake for dessert. Very very light and sweet. We had two new card games to knock out, and we were able to play both of them. Fortunately, I didn't lose terribly - I hate to lose. I whupped everyone in one game, and the other I came in third. So if we were handing out medals, I would have gotten a bronze. Yay!

Mom and dad gave me my birthday presents last night and they were incredibly awesome gifts!! I am wearing part of it today; these beautiful pink breast cancer ribbon earrings and necklace. I love them, and I'm pretty sure that I'm going to just give away my other breast cancer earrings now because they're really gaudy and ugly compared to these. They also gave me an awesome, awesome cookbook that has recipes for jar gifts. You know, like you give someone a jar with stuff already in it, and all they have to do is add one or two ingredients to make a meal? I loooove that stuff, and I used to do that kind of thing at Christmas. I already know what recipe I'm going to use for lunch with mom next week!! And lastly, they gave me money to start getting my bike back into riding condition (#64)!!!! I can't wait to get into that. I think it just needs new tires and a bit of dusting. Then I can start biking our neighborhood!

We had so much fun. I love game nights!

Amanda, we loved the burgers and game night, too. Looking forward to the next time. BTW, what's the medal for fourth place (ha, ha).
