My Birthday :)

Sunday marked my 20th birthday. We went to dinner at Olive Garden, and Isaak joined us. When we returned to my dad's house, he had a cake ready for eating. Denny even kept his annoyance to a minimum for the day.

Here they were singing to me, Sophie got shy and tried to hide under my hand.


She helped me blow out the candle.


"YAY!"


Loves from Papa.


And from Mama.


Waiting for cake.


Mama giggling when she noticed that Denny was taking pictures of her eating.


I'd like to think that I've grown as a person since my last birthday.
I am stronger emotionally.
I am more sure of myself.
I don't rely on other to make me happy.
I've thrown myself into the world of the crafty.
I've read my Twilight Saga a good 4 times now.
I am becoming more comfortable with my body. (notice no "helper" bra was worn, just what God gave me - or rather forgot to give me)
I attempt to cook.
I try to branch out and try new things.
I take Sophie to church more often.
I don't feel the need to please people.

I am me, and if you don't like it - go suck and egg. :D

Thank you everyone for the wonderful gifts and birthday wishes.
