Birthday Eve

I usually don't make a HUGE deal out of my birthday...well, maybe I do, but this year has been different. 30 has ALWAYS seemed OLD to me. And now I'm almost 30...still a few hours left to relish in my 29th year...I like to find reasons to celebrate life. And birthdays are a great reason! Thankfully I have a great family and friends to help me celebrate this year. Thanks!!!

Church was wonderful. My friend, Sarah & her hubby spoke in Sacrament meeting, the choir sang "The Majesty and Glory" - it was WONDERFUL! The Spirit was so strong - and I got to play the piano in primary. Our friends came over for dinner and we had some fun enjoying our new toy. :o)

Some great adoption fundraising news: we sold this!

My amazing friend donated it to us to raise money for our adoption (like I said, she's amazing!) My brother, Evan, was going to buy this but his job moved him to texas, so I listed it on craigslist yesterday. Within hours we had someone here paying us for the car - and even $200 more than we expected to sell it for! :o) We are truly blessed.
