My birthday.

I couldn't let my birthday pass without a little documentation.

This year John and the kids cooked dinner and made me a brownie cupcakes for dessert (made in the mini cupcake pan makes them perfect for a girl like me who loves the edges and corners for brownies -the best part!!).  John also took me to Cirque du Soleil, it was fantastic!

Because I enjoy reading everyones blog and think the tag thing on blogs and facebook is fun and interesting, 
because I am a slacker and have never responded to a tag, 
because I just got tagged again on facebook with the twist that you have your kids answer the questions
because it's my birthday (and my brother answered a tag about his wife on her birthday last week and I thought it was fun).
