A Week of Birthdays!

As many of you know; Brandon and I are four days shy of being three years apart. My birthday is April 11th and Brandon's is April 15th. We had a great time celebrating our birthdays.

I personally couldn't have asked for a better birthday!
For my birthday it started out with Brandon making a wonderful meal of German Pancakes (with Hyrum's help of course) which is one of my favorite foods. I personally like it with jamb and syrup. Next, I received a boquet of beautiful flowers from my in-laws. Which was very thoughtful and kind of them.
My dad came and joined me for lunch and brought Chinese food. To top it off Brandon and I went to Dinner at Tucanos. It was very yummy!
For my birthday Brandon gave me this beautiful homeade book that had pictures of the Twins. He is such a thoughtful husband and I really loved his gift.

For Brandon's birthday he got a very expensive suit that he has been using for his interviews for optometry school. I also put together a small video for him that you can watch I also threw him a small suprise birthday party for him. It started out with a scavenger hunt that led back to our house were a few of our friends were waiting. You should have seen the look on his face when he came through the door. He said he almost left a little puddle in the spot he had been standing.

We had a great time playing games and eating marvelous cupcakes our friends the Ames had made. They put a lot of time and effort into making them. Each cupcake had something about Brandon. For example, one had a missionary tag, another a tent for camping, a big eye for optometry, Texas etc. There was also one for each member of our family. As soon as I get some pictures from our friends I will post them (our camera's memory was full the night of the party and so I had no room for pictures). The first picture is the cupcake of Brandon and the second is the cupcake of Emiliy.

On his actual birthday we went to my parents house for a marvelous dinner of Shishkabobs and a lovely Danish Dessert.

We had great birthdays! Thanks to all of you who helped make it special!
