Pre-Christmas





John thought maybe it would be a good idea to celebrate our birthdays a few days apart, so we could each feel equally important, but then I reminded him, that I'm the one that makes the cakes, and dinner, and perhaps I'd get the short end of the stick on that one...then again, I guess that means nothing would really change.

Maybe I'll just put him in charge next year...

We've said it before, and we will probably continue to say it year after year, but our birthday's are basically a Christmas before Christmas, if you will, or, maybe just another anniversary. Whatever you want to call our double birthday day (maybe just our birthday, duh), we make it work, and we have fun with it.

As we laid in bed Saturday night, we each listed the highs and lows of our last year (an old tradition back from my college days), and without fail, our biggest accomplishment/highlight of our 26th and 28th year was our new little addition to our family. The past five months have been nothing but heaven with him around. 

Our 27th and 29th years have a lot in store for us, namely John graduating from dental school, the air force shipping us off to who knows where, hopefully a few good vacations thrown in for good measure, and the end of a big chapter in our lives here in Oklahoma. A lot of unknown lies ahead, but I'm excited to see what's in store,  and I only hope this next year is equally as good to us as the last, we deserve it, right? ;)

I love the family picture...John and Preston seem to have the same expression on their faces : ).

Love it! And I love that you each got your own cake! I can't wait for Preston to some day realize that not everyone's parents have the same birthday. :) Happy B-day again!

So I think that YOU should make John's birthday cake every year and John should make yours. You shouldn't have to make both!

Your joint birthday must be sorta what it's like for me having my bday on Valentine's Day.

I can't believe you're 27. There's just no way.
