This Day

So I'm at an age where I wish there were a way to celebrate my birthday but yet not get any older.  I know that's not possible but as I've said on multiple occassions (to anyone who would listen) I don't ever need to have another birthday.  Because I'll never have another that could possibly top what I've already experienced.  If you don't believe me (or don't remember) let's take a little trip back in time shall we?

The day a six month old Gideon legally, officially and eternally became part of our family.

I really thought nothing would ever top that day.  Until two years later.

Parker Holland is born at 8:25pm, arriving on my birthday, making her the best present EVER!

So you see, after those two birthdays, it's hard for anything to compare.  Oh sure, I got lots of well wishes from friends and family.   Cupcakes at school, and a few new cute things to wear. It was a good day.  (Any day with cupcakes and new heels is a good day!) But even if it had been an awesome day, it still wouldn't quite compare.

Here we are today.  Me & the two greatest gifts I could ever hope to recieve!

So I don't need to have birthdays anymore.  Firstly I'd prefer to just stop aging right now.  And secondly, any birthdays to come are never going to be as awesome as the two days that gave me my children.
