I put the boys in bed, had some lunch, then did the dishes that I was too tired to do the night before. Sigh. Then Josh tried calling and my phone "broke". It would ring and it worked, but I couldn't get any sound to come out of it. At all. So, as people tried to call me all afternoon, I would sit there listening to my ring tone, then text them back that I couldn't talk because my phone had no sound. I tried so many things to fix it. Finally I gave up and took a nap.
After my nap I got the boys up from their nap. I made hot dogs and macaroni and cheese for dinner (we really do things up special here). Josh came home and brought with him a super yummy cake from Coldstone Creamery. It was devil's food cake and chocolate ice cream layered with peanut butter cups. Soooo good. Here we are singing to me.
I think my favorite part of the evening was watching Deacon eat his piece of ice cream cake.
Yup, that's my boy! I know this may be overkill with the videos and the pictures, but I don't care. It's my birthday post, and I'll put up whatever I want. Lol. Besides, Deacon had us rolling.
While the sugar monster finished off his cake and ice cream, I opened my presents. Josh got me a Cold Stone gift card with the promise of time away from the boys (yay!), and Karen got me these sweet sock monkey slippers, that I apparently have to share with my children.
After we cleaned up Deacon, I left for evening Bible study on base. The ladies there sang to me as well. All in all, it was a pretty good day. A nice way to start the next year of my life.
And by the way, Josh came home from work, essentially looked at my phone, and fixed it in, like, 3 seconds. Jerk.
