30 is NOT the new 20 when you're pregnant!

My parents and Oren worked together to throw me a semi-surprise 30th birthday party Sunday. What that means was that they told me a few hours before the party. I think that this is a lovely idea because otherwise I probably would have gone over in my pj's! I was very surprised when I found out and they were even arranged for Scott and Jackson to be babysat by Caleb. Naturally Andrew had no problem being the only child there - he ran through the house and ate his fill of goodies. There were several games including "Anna through the years", where we had to put the photos in order (I got a bunch wrong)! There was also "Anna Jeopardy", which naturally brought out the competitive nature of my family. :) Thanks to everyone who went out of their way to come and to my parents and Oren for being so thoughtful and generous with their time - it was fun!

You are very fortunate to be able to ring in the new decade with people who love you so much. Not everyone is so fortunate. I can't wait to see what this new chapter has in store for you! Happy Birthday!
