A Wonderful Birthday

Well, yesterday was my birthday and Tim made sure that it was a very special day!
As soon as we woke up, he brought my present into me.  For any one who knows me, I just love presents... I had begged to open them all before the day, but he made me wait. And I am glad that I did!  
After that, we went to Panera to have breakfast together (I had gotten a giftcard :o)
We spent time reading our Bibles and praying together. It was such a blessing!
Then we went home and for about 4 hours I worked on school work for HFLS (exams are monday) And then... the REAL fun began :o)
Over the Christmas holiday, we had received two large gift certificates to use in Chicago. One was a GC to Lawry's Prime Rib, from Jon and Rach.  The other was a set of tickets to go see the "Blue Man Group" from my brother Tim and his wife Shannon.
Well, enough talking, here are some pictures of the lovely night we had!
The chef carved our prime rib right in front of us!

The brought out a mini- trifle for my birthday!

They didn't allow us to take pictures inside the theatre, but here are a few outside. 
They show was hilarious and exciting. So many unexpected things happened!d

Blue Man Group? Fun! What is your opinion, is it a must do or not? I've seen some things from them, but didn't know if I would like a whole show of them . . . I'd love to hear more details! Glad you had a wonderful birthday! I love you!

Hey becky,

The "Blue Man Group" is basically a comedy light and sound show. Three men dress in black, paint their faces adn hands blue and give a show with black lights, live music, and skits. It was really fun! At one point they spread tissue paper strips throughout the crowd over everyones heads -- and turned the black light on and strobe lights too... it was crazy!

Trina... it's weird... but really fun too. So I think everyone should go at least once. You and Don would really like it I think!
