Today was such a magnificent day. Earlier today I said it was just a happy day, but now I feel the adjective must be bumped up to magnificent! We spent the day celebrating my sister's birthday, even though her actual birth date isn't until tomorrow. Her boyfriend Abe has a huge day of fun planned, so we elected to do one of the family get togethers today. My parents provided the ice cream cake, and we showered her with wonderful gifts including, but not limited to: diamond earrings, Wii, and Wii Fit Plus! I would say that she definitely made out like a bandit...and she truly deserves every good thing she received!
After presents and cake Hank and I went shopping for a bit. Afterward we went to Lauren's house for her birthday get together and had a blast. My sister and Abe are recent homeowners and their home is so adorable. We played her new Wii, ate yummy food, and had a great time hanging out. A lot of her other friends came over as the night progressed and it was a great time. I'm so glad Lauren had a fun night.
Here's some photos from the day and night!

It was a beautiful day today!
back home again, now ready to go to Lauren's-
This is Lauren and Abe's dog Rex! I love him so much. They rescued him after he had been found abused and left by a dumpster. :( He has a very, very happy and loved life now which makes me ecstatic.
He is so cute (and hates the flash most of the time!)
We like to take a lot of photos!
...and they often all turn out looking alike!

I found this little gem at my sister's house in a box, completely in tact with all pieces there...this was one of our favorite games growing up. I always wanted to be Lila Fowler. I am beyond happy about this find and so happy Laur kept it after all these years.

Isn't he beautiful?!
taking this wonderful game home- we just had to pose for another photo with it. What fabulous memories!
I also had to include this photo from earlier- Ms. Madeline and me!
Happy birthday Laur!
