Last Tuesday was my birthday! The celebration was drawn out all week. The Sunday before the big day we went to my parents' house for dinner, then on my actual birthday Thomas and I went out to eat, and then we had dinner at his parents' the Friday after my birthday. It was tons of fun, and I got a lot of nice presents, including books, movies, gift cards, and.... a sewing machine! I've wanted one for a while, so I was very excited that Thomas and his sister Emily got me one! I'm not much of a sewer (I haven't done much since 7th grade home ec), but I've always wanted to learn to do more, and now I can! :) I've already started on a couple of projects. Here are some pictures from the various celebrations:

Thomas is in sad need of a hair cut.
