guess who's 37 today?

Funny enough, I've still got that double chin and thigh roll.

My sister, seven-year-old nephew, and father flew in from Massachusetts yesterday morning. My dad will be celebrating his 77th birthday on April 23rd and the kids are beyond excited that we are having two birthday cakes in less than a week. I'm beyond excited that I get to spend my birthday with family I haven't seen in over two years.

I can't imagine a better way to spend this day.

    Thirty-seven?...37?...3-7?

    Good grief! I remember the day you were born. Can't believe that was 37 years ago. You're looking good for an old bag.

    You have it all Jen! All that matters anyway...God, health, a loyal & devoted spouse, adoring, healthy children, a roof over your head, lots and lots of love surrounding you. Enjoy the day while giving thanks for your bounty.

    Happy birthday from BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS!

    Love & kisses,
