Birthdays and such

Alas, I turned 27. To celebrate, we went to see 007 on Saturday afternoon and got some dinner. Hattie was at Danielle's house all afternoon while we partied, so in the evening, Danielle came to our house while her parents went out. We figured opening presents is more fun with kids, so we opened gifts early with Danielle's help.

Finally! I've wanted these movies ever since I posted about them in May.

And the girls had a great time playing together. Danielle is 2 1/2 so she's old enough to share and be nice to Hattie.

Sunday, my actual birthday, was nice and calm. We dyed my hair for kicks and giggles, and it came out a little too red for my liking. Good thing it washes out! Also, Kristina and her daughter Juliet came over for dinner and pie, so it was good to be with friends since family is far away!

Definitely in my late 20's now. That used to seem so old. When I was teaching Relief Society a few weeks ago, I said something about when I grow up...and everyone laughed at me. I guess I still feel like a kid.

yeah, 27 sounds old, doesn't it? but it doesn't feel so old to me either! i guess we'll have to see when we turn 30 if that changes (yikes!).
Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday! i was thinking about you all day sunday! To be in our "LATE" twenties feels old so I check for wrinkles every now and then. I am getting sunspots already...or maybe I am just paranoid! Sounds like it was a great weekend! See you soon!
