How Sweet it is...

Jerry had the kids be involved in every aspect of my birthday... 

And it made the day so very sweet!! 
-- from donuts and chocolate milk for breakfast
-- to a fun lunch with great friends (thanks girlies!)
-- to fun dinner together at Mexican Restaurant 
(complete with the 'happy birthday song and free dessert) 
-- to coming home for cake and ice cream
-- to the opening of the gifts... 
(that Jerry let them pick out all by themselves...) 
... an apple slicer from Ben 
(hey, he loves sliced apples, so that just screamed 'mommy would love this!' to him)
-- measuring cups from Seth
(he loves helping me measure to make things in the kitchen,
 and with an extra set, he won't even have to share with Sarah!)
-- and an "isn't this so cute, mom?!" sleepware outfit from Sarah
(in size TRIPLE X... "well, mom, you're belly is REALLY big" as quoted on our trip...)

I couldn't have asked for a better day!  
Thank you so much!!
