Ava came out and showed us what she'd been doing with some Frozen lip gloss she got for Christmas and told us, "It's called yispick!"

So on my actual birthday, we went to the Mall of America and met Matt's parents who took us to the Rainforest Cafe. We had never been there together before, and it was so much fun. Lots of fish and animals (fake) who moved and made noises and there was a thunderstorm every 20 minutes. Really was fun! So then Matt and I shopped while his parents took the kids on rides and to play with Legos. Very nice to have some kid free time, and they probably felt the same way! Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa! It was a special birthday, and I am so blessed. So much more than I deserve, but I'm not complaining! Thank you, dear family and friends, for your love and encouragement and gifts of time and expense. Love you all!
My sister Rebekah told me to have Jack watch a movie with a name we were ok with since he seemed to keep picking names of movie dogs. Well after the kids picked the name Jock, our friends gave us this movie. Guess we picked the right name! Perfect!
As fortune would have it, three of my very close friends have birthdays right around mine in addition to Nancy's and then a couple more family ones coming up (Chelsie and Jack). So January is a very busy month birthday-wise. So last Friday I was able to spend time with my friend Jenn and her two kids, Sam and Nora, who are both close to Jack and Ava in age. Jenn and I were both in the same hospital at the same time having Jack and Sam. Sam is two days younger than Jack. We also both went through some of the same things in our pregnancy so bonded through that and we've been good friends for years now.
And of course, my weekend involved Chick Fil A! Yum!
We had a fun time with our Kids 4 Truth kids last week. They all came together to sing and minister to the people at Goldfinch Estates. However at the last second literally, Goldfinch canceled due to the flu. It's been going around like crazy. So we still took the kids to McDonalds and sang all the way there. They did great, and we had a fun time.
