I swore I was going to "keep it together" this birthday. Not over-do things so that I can actually keep up with all the traditions I have started. That kinda didn't go as planned... We were originally going to a wedding in Iowa City on her actual birthday, and last minute plans didn't work out. So I had an outfit for her big birthday picked out and Mommy and Daddy took her to get some new toys and out to eat!! I had a gift all wrapped and ready for her to open when she woke up. I wanted 2 balloons to tie it all together for her to see when she rolled over in the morning.
we went back home and had people over for the Michigan/Notre Dame football game & Charlees birthday cupcakes. The cupcakes were so darn good... fresh strawberry cupcakes (homemade) with chocolate icing. Ridiculously good. The kids partied hard, and then passed out on their mommas. Harvey was asleep on Angie, Berkeley was asleep on Emily, and Charlee was asleep on her momma... I loved it. It was a fun filled day! Tomorrow we will celebrate Maddy's 18th birthday.
