I'm 37

This is the 2nd time in my life that my birthday has fallen on Easter.  I didn't mind that at all.  I was a little bummed about my birthday falling on fast Sunday however.  But I made up for that on Monday by eating some yummy Easter chocolate!

Easter/my birthday was a nice day.  After I survived the morning (how many more of these do I have to do alone!?), we made it to church and all was well there.  The primary kids sang me "You've had a birthday."  I lead it - which was awesome since 3-year olds can lead better than I do.  :)

After church we did a few things, including reading the Friend and making resurrection rolls (which Ben and I didn't get to eat - boohoo).  I then made the whole family go on a walk, pulling out the "it's my birthday" card - since I can only do that once a year!  We had a fun walk with our family, including the 2 dogs.  We ran in to our neighbors at the park as we were walking by and we visited with them for a while.

Dinner was more of a "what Emily wants," as opposed to a traditional Easter dinner:  homemade tomato soup and homemade Artisan bread (homemade by me . . . :).  It was delicious.  Ben made and decorated an awesome rice krispie cake - go Ben!

We watched a bunch of Bible videos related to Easter Sunday and that was pretty much that.

Birthdays for older people are certainly better than the alternative. Happy Birthday, Emily. It's a beautiful family photo...too bad Ben wasn't in it, too!
