Stage 2 came as a total surprise.
The cookie game
The jingle bell game...
...making fools of pregnant women everywhere
Stage 3 was across the country in Oregon. My sister Stacey turned 40 just a few days before me, so we got to celebrate with her, my parents, and my sister, Jessica. And of course, my family spoiled me rotten when it was my big day. They even got me 30 small gifts for turning 30. I can't wait until I turn 50!!
On the evening of my birthday we headed up to Washington to be with Doug's parents and to commence Stage 4, where Doug's mom had a cake waiting for me. Holla!
So as you can see, turning 30 isn't bad. I'm grateful for the friends and family that mocked me for getting old and decrepit, but then enveloped me in love. Thanks again!
