Rewind back to the beginning of October. This year we turned 31 and 34, and we celebrated in usual M&M style, meaning very little fanfare and a lot of eating good food with friends. Maybe it's because I am hopelessly untalented at gift-giving, but celebrating birthdays has never really been my "thing". Despite my extroversion, I just don't love being the center of a party. So, on Marcos' birthday (the 4th) we had a nice family breakfast, my mom made a yummy dinner for us and and we had friends over for dessert, and on my birthday (the 8th) we went out to sushi at our favorite place. Top that off with the annual birthday celebration spaghetti night at the Hill Casa, and we called it a great roll over into a new age.
At our favorite place, Shiki Sushi, if you order enough you get it delivered to the table on a huge wooden boat. We are so glad that the kids love sushi just as much as we do! We polished this off and then ended up ordering more (and then rolling out of the restaurant...). YUM.
