My Birthday Party!      Sunday, June 24, 2007 - 11:27 PM

Ash and I got to spend a lazy day at home on my birthday (sat. the 23rd).  We slept in then watched Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, which I enjoyed a lot.  In trying to lose weight I have stayed far away from fast food and treated myself to some McDonalds on my birthday.  I tried their new iced coffee and it was fantastic!  Spent the evening at home with the Ash & the cats.  I am so in love with the new kitten Kepler.  He is a bucket of fun!

Today we had a party for me at Mom and Dad’s house.  All the regulars went to HapKiDo this morning.  My foot is still in the healing process.  My follow-up appt. is next Friday so I should be able to participate next week.  After class we met at the pub for lunch and then everyone went back to the house to go swimming.  It was the perfect day for a dip in the pool.  Everyone got in and we all had a fun time hanging out together. 

Around 4:30pm Lannie came by with Nick and his son Kenny, his wife Kimberly and their son.  We all hung around the pool for a bit and then came inside for Pizza.  The pizza was gigantic!  It was so big it wouldn’t fit in the cab of the Mom’s F150 truck.  They had to put it in the truck bed!  It was delicious.  That was a great find by Mom and Michelle!  We then had some ice cream cake and opened my present from Lannie, a Steinmart gift card.  It is a really cool store.  Last time I window shopped in there I found so many things I wanted I made myself leave so I wouldn't go broke! LOL  I also opened a card that Grandma & Grandpa Benson sent with a check for $25.  This was so awesome and unexpected.  I am so happy they sent me a card.  It really made me feel nice that they were thinking about me.  Lannie, Nick and his kids had to leave as Kenny was going back to Iraq and they all had a flight to catch.  It was nice to get to meet more of my extended family! 

Afterwards the immediate family held a Texas Hold Em’ Poker Tourney!  It was so much fun!  The first one Mom won and the second I won!!!  It was such a great day.  Then I got to open presents from everyone else.  Grandma & Grandpa Horn sent me a card.  Ash got me an iPod shuffle that is super tiny and cool!  Mom and Dad got me a Visa gift card that I can use for anything I want (love it).  Michelle, Brent, Alex and Matthew got me a really nice summer outfit and sleepwear.  The shirt I already know will be one of my favorite wardrobe pieces.

I love my family BIG time!
