A Giant Birthday

Yesterday was the official celebration of my birth.  I think it may have been the first birthday of mine during which my mother didn't cry about how "I never expected you to make it to this birthday!"  It is possible that she was all teared out from the birth of baby Gavin.  (Who I will be visiting in... count it... six days...)

Anyways... we celebrated my birthday weekend with various exciting happenings such as: the ice cream social at the Nash Farm, going to see the movie Inception, and dinner at Olive Garden.  I got some fun presents, my favorite being the movie, "She's the Man."  Click here for some excellent over the top acting as well as hilariously corny jokes from my new favorite movie.  I have already watched it 4 times... no really... I have...  Grant baked the traditional Texas Sheet Cake for me and we had some friends over to visit and enjoy cake and ice cream.

I learned a lot about myself in reviewing the two pictures taken during the birthday cake candle ritual.

First... I need to learn to control my giant eyeballs...


Second... I need to control my giant mouth... I am clearly not applying the skills I learned while playing the clarinet in the 6th grade band.  So much for first chair...


In all actuality, I have known about my big mouth and alien eyes for some time.  Yesterday was just a confirmation that I am failing in my attempt to control them...

But either way, it was an excellent birthday.  Can I have another one soon?

I have officially tried to wish you a belated Happy Birthday like...okay, it was only 2 times (stupid internet). BUT, I wanted to wish you a happy 22, and tell you that "She's the Man" is one of the best movies of all time. Here's your books.

I have to agree that She's the Man is one of the best movies ever! Made me laugh so hard! And I also have to add that I love your "giant" eyeballs! I have them too! I use to get made fun of for them and was called "bug eyes" in junior high... but now I love them and they really define me (as they do you too!) Embrace those big beautiful eyes! They are gorgeous and they add a lot of character.... the only bad thing is that we can't lie with our eyes! They give EVERYTHING away! ha ha :)

Erin, I'm glad to have a giant eyeball friend :) I think Parker has joined us in the club as well.
