How to have a happy birthday

Last Saturday was my birthday and we had such a great weekend. First we went to a third birthday party for Liv's friend Ava Bella. Olivia really enjoyed playing with all her friends, and the weather turned out nice too.
Then on Saturday night Vaish and Jake came over and cooked us dinner. She made Pasta Bolonese, it was soooo good and we are still eating the leftovers. My Mom came over for dinner and so did our friends Dennis and Sara. We had a great time eating and drinking, and Liv loved showing off for everyone.
After dinner we played Trivial Pursuit, boys verses girls. Now I am not a competitive person at all, but you bring out a board game and put Vinay on the other team, and the horns come out. Now I am not gloating at all but yes the girls did win, fair and square I might add. We didn't get to bed till about 2 so we have been recovering all week. Thanks guys for making my birthday so fun. Sooooo much better than last year when I was missing my Liv and waiting in PGN.

Liv trying to feed Addie, If you don't eat the food, Liv will keep pushing it in your face. Sorry Addie!!
Of course she wasn't going to share any of her cupcake.

The best birthday present of all, having my Liv here with me.

I agree about the BEST birthday present and it being better than last year. In 2006 we got our referral 4 days after my birthday. So, 2007 was MUCH better having our girl home. Sounds like you had a good time.

As for playing by herself. It is rare that Savannah plays independently, but when she gets in the mood to she does play for awhile and it is my gift because Savannah only naps in the car. So, I basically get nothing done unless she sleeps late since she goes to bed so late.

Love the cupcake photo and Savannah force feeds too, but mostly me.

Happy Belated Birthday! Sounds like a wonderful day! I am the same as you, not competitive but when I am on the opposite team as my husband I get vicious. :)
