Birthday, Bugs and Beautiful Cake
For those of you who are wondering how these three go together let me just let you know. February 19th was my, Laura's, birthday. Lets just say that 30 was a lot easier than this mid-thirties deal. So Thursday night the night before my birthday Max started running a fever. He said that his belly hurt and the he was very sleepy. He woke up on Friday with a fever and complaining about his throat hurting. With flash light in hand, I told his to say AWWWW. Yuck!!! My first case of strep throat. Long story short, I spent 2 hours, on my birthday, having 2 kids swabbed for strep throat at the doctors office. One positive and one negative diagnosis. All I can say is thank goodness that my mom came up and suprised me. She sat with the kids while I went and got prescriptions filled. She was so sweet to watch Madie and Max while Chris and I went out and celebrated my birthday. So, the bugs did not ruin my birthday!!!
My mom brought me a beautiful birthday cake. She also took me out shopping and spoiled me. Thanks Momma! My Fort Wayne girlfriends suprised me Saturday night with a girls night out. We had lots of fun and laughs. Thanks girls, you helped make my birthday. All in all thirty five was hectic and fun. Ok, so that is the story of my life. Looking forward to an amazing year with more fun and chaos.
