I enjoy making a big deal out of birthdays. I hang up a banner for the birthday boy (all males in this house), I make a special cake for them, and make their favorite meal. My guys did a great job of making my day special - even though they did not hang up a banner, make me a meal or a cake. . . . they are guys, after all :-). Dan took me out to Applebee's the night before my birthday and Tanner watched the boys for us. I also got some nice gifts:
From Dan - a couple of photography books and a cricut cartridge
I bought these myself on Black Friday -good deal! I got two because I was going to give one to my mom for Christmas, then she went and got one herself, so I was going to return it. Then my mom sent me some money for my birthday and I figured, I would just keep the extra cartridge :-) Thanks, mom.
From Ty and Emily a Yankee Candle - lilac scent. It smells like my grandma's yard and I love it!
From Tanner: 2 packages of scrapbooking paper, which I am always needing!
I also got a gift card to Christopher and Banks from Kevin's mom and a wreath from Dan's mom.
Thanks, everyone for the gifts, the cards and the birthday wishes.
Here is the card my mom made for me - me in the tub. Oh that is a fantasy of mine - being in the tub w/o children screaming at the door asking for drinks or snacks. . . . Cute card, mom.
Aren't birthdays fun?
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You're only as old as you feel.
