Birthday Week

Birthday Week. Every year it is truly a week of celebration, and it has been my whole life.  Grandmother's (my mom's mom) birthday was March 16.  My dad's birthday is March 18, and mine is March 19.  So growing up the week of Spring Break (when it used to be the third week of March) was always birthday week. 
Now that I am a part of the Chandler family, Tommy's (Aaron's brother) birthday is thrown into the mix on March 18th as well.

Birthday week started on Monday night with a celebration at Aaron's parents.  We celebrated Tommy's and my birthdays.

This is the only picture I took.  Being St. Paddy's Day, Ali had a 'green' food theme.  Notice the Irish nachos, spinach salad, green fluff salad, and limeade in a green cup.

Tuesday night we celebrated my dad's birthday with his own dinner and cake made by my mom.

Again, this is the only picture that was taken. 
Dad's cake was homemade strawberry cake with strawberry icing.
Wednesday night my mom made dinner for me.  Only she made a homemade red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.  My favorite!!!
All in all it was a pretty wonderful birthday!!!  I spent the day with my boy doing what we do on most Wednesdays going to occupational therapy and having lunch.  We had Taco Bueno!  Another of my favorites!!!  Then, I got to spend dinner with Aaron, Jackson, my parents and my cousin, Jeremy. 
Taco Bueno lunch
Isn't he cute!!! He's pretty good company, too.
Thankful for another year.  I still can't believe I'm 33!!!  That's crazy!!!
