Winding Down

A few months back, Steven asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I told him that the only thing I really wanted was to have both of my children together.  I hinted that it would be great if he could make it happen.

A few weeks ago, Sir showed me the email he had with Jake,wherein Jake said he couldn't make it for my birthday weekend, he had to work.  Little did I know, this was a scam.  Steven, Jake and Taylor plotted behind my back,and flew Jake in for the weekend.

I opened my gifts the morning of my birthday to find out Jake would be in town within 24 hours, and would be joining us at my birthday party.  

We picked him up Friday evening, and got to play with him all weekend long.  

 And, on Saturday, my birthday wish came all the way true.  I had my two kids together!!  And it was great.

My dear friends,my family and my wonderful husband were all with me to celebrate at Mellow Mushroom.

 We got to play the next day at a teeny tiny Oktoberfest. (complete with the world's worst Oompa Band!)

It was the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER. Turning 50 was no big deal.  But celebrating it?  With all my loved ones together?  That made it the best deal.

Thanks Sir. xxx
