Another year older...

Yesterday I turned 27... the closer I get to 30, the less I like it! :P I just plain don't feel that old!

Steve and the kids gave me a Wacom tablet for the computer for photo editing and everything else you can do with it. So far it's really fun and I love it, although there is a major learning curve so I need some practice. Also, Steve told me to choose a destination and we can spend 4 days there and leave the kids with Sara (our babysitter). I'll really have to think on it! He and I both have been itching to get out of town again. He works so hard and we rarely go anywhere, even little trips these days. So, maybe just when we get our first bit of snow in the next month or so, I'll pick somewhere warm. ;)

My family came over last night and had cake and ice cream with us. My friend, Jen, made this way yummy chocolate cake for me and we pretty much ate the whole thing last night. ;) I should have taken a picture of it served with caramel sauce and chocolate shell stuff with ice cream... Kind of glad it's mostly gone, I don't want it in my house to tempt me! Every one of my brothers even showed up last night and I was pretty proud of them for that! I think our last visitors left around 11:30pm... we're such the party animals. ;)

Ha, not enough candles in the house for 27.... had to improvise. ;)
The kids enjoyed firsts and seconds, of course. :)
These are about all the pictures I took last night! Such is the life of the lady behind the camera. ;) But, we are going to dinner with some friends tonight and I'll make sure to take my camera then.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes I received yesterday!
