Good Times!

We started the birthday celebration early~as usual:) My theory is that if you have to get older why not celebrate longer?! I try to party all month if possible. LOL
Even though yesterday was a day early we had a yummy lunch out after church at a local fave restaurant, Marketplace Grill. On your birthday they give you a dessert on the house. My personal favorite is The Chocolate Mess. Can you see why?!?!I promise I shared it with 4 other people!! And we scraped it clean, too!

Afterwards we took the kiddos to the movies to watch *Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs* in 3D. We were way early for the movie, so I thought I'd capture the moment with them in the special glasses. The movie was really great~we all enjoyed it. Actually, the entire day was really wonderful: a great service at church, delicious lunch and awesome family time. It just doesn't get any better!

Happy Birthday, Lora! You and Betsy share a birthday...how funny! Buddy's is later this week and I'll have three teenagers in the house then, although the way he's been eating it already seems like I do.

That is a chocolate mess! I've never seen anything like it. I'm not sure I would have shared!!! :)

We are the birthday girls. Mine was Sunday and I'd guess I am little older than you. LOL. That dessert looks grand. Birthdays are great!

You would totally love The Chocolate Mess!! As you can see, the glass is chocolate-dipped and then filled with ice cream and MORE chocolate:) They have a chocolate/peanut butter one, too, that is yummy:)
