So Many Reasons to Celebrate!

This has been a GREAT week! I had an amazing birthday on Tuesday. Seriously, it was one of the best I've had in years and years. I have some of the best friends and family a girl could ask for! The only thing that could have made it better was if my twin sister, Tomesia, could have been here to celebrate with me. Maybe next year!
Even though my birthday was awesome, I had an even better weekend. I found out on Friday that our dear friends Brad and Rachel have been matched with a baby in South Korea! They are parents to a beautiful baby boy! Our whole family rejoices with them. As Emma put it "It's just in time! Now Mr. Brad can have the best Father's day ever!". I am pretty sure she nailed it on the head.
Saturday we received some more super great news. Our friends (former students here at NTBI) got engaged! Congratulations David and Kristi!!! They have not posted on their blog yet, but I am hoping to see the infamous engagement photo soon! When Addie heard the news, she said "Holy Smokes!". Now THAT was funny!
Today was a nice day celebrating Josh. He is a great father! I feel so blessed that my daughters have such a great daddy. :)
Here are some pics from my awesome birthday!

Yummy chocolate birthday cake that my good friend Beckey made me. She is so wonderful!

Check out this delicious birthday dinner! Josh grilled the most amazing venison steaks from the deer he got last fall. They were SO YUMMY!

Another awesome surprise! Josh got me an ice cream cake at Cold Stone creamery. It was so good. Two cakes in one day! What an awesome birthday. :)
