i don't feel 49

What a nice weekend I had.

Both Danielle and Jake came home to help Don and I celebrate our birthdays.

We enjoyed the company of each other while eating at home and eating out, playing cards, watching football (college and pro), having Jake's band jam in our basement, going to church, opening presents, and the capper of the weekend.... a concert.

We enjoyed hearing Jars of Clay, Robert Randolf and the Family Band, Switchfoot, and Third Day at a fairly new venue here in town. We had great seats to watch a great show and had a great time. And as I type this (at midnight), my ears are still ringing.

Dani, Jake, and his girlfriend, Hollee, made us a cake Saturday afternoon. It was fun watching them do everything from start to finish. It was delicious. And their presents to us were so thoughtful.

But the best present was having them both home and the fun we had together. Thank you Dani and Jake.

Happy, happy birthday to you both! It sounds like you found the perfect way to celebrate. And you look great by the way.

The event center is right in my neighborhood! In fact, my friend's brother is in the band Jars of Clay. I'm sorry I missed it, it sounds like it was a great evening.

A couple days late -- but Happy Birthday. 49 is a nice age (just ask me, I know). I turn 50 next month. Now THAT is a scary number. But, I will embrace it with dignity and grace, just as I did when I turned 40. If nothing else, I am looking forward to joining the "over 50" blogroll that is floating around the blogosphere.
