birthday extravaganza!

april is no joke around these parts! with spring break, conference, and three out of our four makes for a busy, busy month. 

danny's birthday fell on a wednesday this year and when i asked him what he wanted to do, this was his response: eat sweet & sour chicken, have treats (he always wants those! haha), go longboarding as a fam, and watch the hobbit. 

so that is what we did! it turned out to be a pretty awesome day.

and since i had to throw in a surprise somewhere, the kids and i made a chips ahoy & swiss roll "cake" and surprised danny while he was teaching his class. he was very surprised :)

longboarding was a success! the kids (especially max) were so eager to hop right on and be as awesome as daddy. luckily, there were no terrible accidents, but i wouldn't be surprised if max took up longboarding when he gets older. the look of sheer delight on his face was priceless. and watching him carry the longboard down the street all by himself?? that was pretty darn cute too!

^^ see what i mean?! ^^

as for watching the hobbit at the end of the day...we did pretty good ;) i may or may not have fallen asleep forty minutes into it! but since it is so incredibly long, danny turned it off about halfway through, and i finished it with him the following night.

happy birthday sweetheart! i am so very happy to have you in my life.
love you!!

p.s. you guys are awesome!! the comments, emails, and texts i received on my last post totally made my day. it's so nice to know there are so many out there, struggling with the awful thyroid disease.


  1. That Av! The entire time I was thinking, she is SO CUTE!! Her leggings. and shoes. and cute little face. What a sweetie! You guys are a cute little family! xoxo

  2. Glad Danny finally got to watch the Hobbit! We just barely watched it too, and it also took 2 nights. We must be getting old or something :)
