24 years OLD!!!!

I can't believe it, another year has passed and I am now 24. How in the world did I get to be so old? I'm in my mid 20's! AHHHH how did that happen? I still feel like I'm 18...time flies! I had a fun birthday here in the berg with Matt. My birthday was on Friday, and we celebrated all weekend long. It was a blast.

Matt surprised me on Saturday. We went to this resturant we have been wanting to try since we have lived here and some of my good friends were there to celebrate! It was so much fun. I just love these girls, I have made some pretty great friends here!

My cute new boots Matt got me. He did this shopping ALL BY HIMSELF! I didn't even give him a hint at all. He did a great job if I do say so myself. He also got me a nike fit which is awesome, some new running clothes and a couple dresses. :)

There are wayyyy to many candles on this cake!

He made this cake the night before and was up half the night decorating our apartment and in the process of decorating, he fell and accidently crushed the first cake he made, so this was literally an all night project. The cake was SO GOOD! I could have eaten the whole thing by myself.

He surprised me at my school on my birthday and brought my kids cupcakes! They were so excited. They love when he comes to visit. They all want to show off for him and show him all the cool things they can do. They wanted to sing songs for him that we have been learning and it was so cute. We went outside to eat the cupcakes and ended up playing a mean game of tag with the class. It was fun. I love my kids.

On a more depressing note, this is how we have to dress whenever we leave the house. It is SO COLD here. I have never experienced weather like this. This morning it was -30, so school was cancelled (which was awesome, I'm not complaining about that). However, I am really sick of wearing 12 layers, a hat, gloves, face mask, snow shoes, snow pants, and goggles every time we go outside for crying out loud!

Phil didn't see his shadow this morning, which is great.... HOWEVER, I'm sure winter will be here for at least 4 more months. AT LEAST. Locals say that it has snowed on the 4th of July here before. Please pray that that doesn't happen this year! A girl can only take so much. Running outside is a complete joke. They don't plow their sidewalks at all and the whole time I feel like I'm going to fall on my head. I wore those spike things that go over your shoes and that seemed to help a little. The gym was closed here today so I was forced to run outside. HOLY COW. It was miserable. I had about 20 layers on and a scarf that covered my entire face with only my eyes poking out. My face felt like it was going to freeze off. I won't be doing that again any time soon! Well it's off to bed, hopefully school will be canceled again tomorrow. :)
