Well, it's that time of year again when I add another candle to my birthday cake.  28 years old!  Not sure how that happened since I feel like I should still be in my early 20's.  Here were are though.  I thought I would take a look back at the last ten birthdays just for a little fun.

18th birthday I was about ready to graduate from high school.  Woot-Woot.  I thought I was so smart.
19th birthday.  I had just gone through a bad break up and was wrapping up my first year of college.  I wasn't nearly so smart as I had thought a year earlier.

20th birthday.  I was about to be engaged to my wonderful husband.  Sounds a little fickle when I narrow it down that way.  All I can say is that I know marrying Stephen was the right decision and I am even more sure of that now nearly 8 years later.

21st birthday.  I was finishing up my college education with an Associate's Degree in Preschool Education and we were getting ready to make our first apartment move.
 22nd birthday.  I took a pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant with Vance.  Very sweet birthday gift.

23rd birthday.  Still adjusting to being a mother and getting ready for another move.

24th birthday.  Pregnant with Tanner and chasing Vance around.

25th birthday.  Enjoying being a mother of two cute, but michevious little boys.

26th birthday.  The first birthday I got to spend with my parents, brothers, and one of my sisters since I got married.  Very fun. 
 27th birthday.  Adjusting to having three kids and recovering from the shock of Stephen losing his job and deciding to go back to school.
 And now we've reached my 28th birthday.  Hope it is a good one.  Thank you to everyone who has already wished me a happy birthday.  I only have a couple of years left in my 20's so I better enjoy them while they last!
