Celebrating my Birthday

Posted by Liz McCoy Saturday, January 3, 2009

My birthday was December 23rd we started celebrating the Friday before.  We went out to dinner and bowling with our friends Denny and April.  That was lots of fun.  My last 2 birthdays we had been planning to go bowling but never really got around to it. This year we really wanted to see if our Wii bowling skills translate into real life.  FYI – they don’t! 

I felt so weak picking up an 9 lbs ball and trying to chuck it down the lane.  We all thought that carrying around my 30+ lbs kid would have been good strength training in preparation for a bowling ball.  I came to the conclusion carrying around a kiddo uses COMPLETELY different muscles.

The next day we had a birthday lunch at my parents house where I got to open up presents. The little boy helped me, which just gave him practice for his upcoming unwrapping marathon on the 25th. Everyone was there except my sister Rebecca.  You might not be able to tell from the photos so I’ll share with you all the presents I got.  Ken and Jack got me Rachael Ray Bubble and Brown baking set plus other RR goodies.  They also got me the Shark steam mop all of which I really really wanted!  (The shark mop works really well!).  Mom and Dad gave me money (nice!).  And Jessie made me a cell phone charm.

Ken pretty much pampered me the whole weekend and into the week and let me veg out if I wanted or sit in front of the computer for long stretches.  So basically my birthday was 5 days of celebrating.  I worked hard at ENJOYING being the center of attention and feeling special on my birthday, and giving people the opportunity to bless me instead of shifting focus or acting like it is no big deal.

Thanks to my husband for making my 27th birthday more than bearable…but completely FANTASTIC!
