Saturday I celebrated my birthday. As per birthday tradition Will decorated the dining room. I was quit impressed with his decorating skills. He found the streamers and even put on a tablecloth! I had fresh flowers waiting for me when I woke up.He made me pancakes. We (heart) U with a chicken. So professional.The boys gave me 2 new pair of "stretchy" pants. My favorite kind of pants to wear! My gift from Will was a night out. We spent Saturday at a themed hotel room. We stayed in the "Mountain" room. It was awesome. It had mountains and snow scenery painted all over the walls. It was very rustic looking. There was fake pine trees in the corner with snow all over them and the ground. We even had a whirl pool in our room.
After checking in we went and ate dinner at The Big Steer down the street. It had wonderful food and I got a free icecream sundae. From there we tested our luck at Prairie Meadows Casino. I have only been there once and it was a long time ago. I figured I didn't go there for my 21st birthday so going on my 31st birthday sounded fun. We didn't have such great luck. We lost about $20 and went home. (Ok, I lost $20, Will broke even). We spent the rest of the night relaxing eating wine and cheese that Will had brought from home!
Sunday we drove up to Colo and spent the day with my in-laws. We had fun playing cards (and beating the men), eating good food (mom and Jen made my favorites...snickers salad...ummm) and just hanging out.
My birthday theme for this year was chickens. I am bound and determined to get chickens this Spring so my cards, decorations and even some gifts were poultry oriented. My mother in law and husband gave me singing chicken cards. My sister in law gave me a feeder and waterer for my coop. And here is the cake hubby made me.And last but not least, the posters. For those of you who don't know, we always make little birthday signs and hang them up for decorations. Will was pretty proud of himself this year.
