Birthday Fun...

Oh, i feel so lucky to be loved by so many people! My birthday festivities seems to always start a few days in advance. Mom and Kev came to visit me for my birthday on Monday, they took me out to eat at one of my favorite places, Bajio. It was fun to have them here for a couple days, every time my little brother, kevin, comes into town he insists on helping me with my house chores, which i don't mind at all, so of course he made my bed and cleaned my room for my birthday. Thanks mom and kevin for making a trip down!
On Wednesday (my birthday) i woke up to the sweet smell of waffles and hot syrup that my wonderful husband made and brought up to me in bed. Then around noon a knock on the door surprised me... I opened the door to be even more surprised when a few of my friends (stacey, stacie, brit p + sara) stood and sang happy birthday and brought along some flowers and a bundt cake (another favortie of mine!), then they said, let's go to lunch! So we headed to Rachel's Kitchen for a delicious lunch and some chatting. Thanks ladies, it was so much fun and i was completely surprised! Meanwhile, the snow was blanketing the rooftops, the streets and our yards, kate fell asleep and when she woke up we went out and played in the snow. She just loves it! She was completely amazed by it and couldn't stop smiling...




























Then i think she got too cold...



After our fun snow encounter we headed to BJ's Restaurant for dinner. Yum, even the name of this restaurant makes my mouth water! Yes we ate and ate and even had dessert... PIZOOKIES!
After BJ's we went back to Ron and Kathies for some more cake, ice cream and presents!
Now, i don't mean to brag, but i'm sure you were wondering what i got, here are a couple pictures...

What a GREAT birthday!! It reminds me of the Christmas that Jon got me a pair of "diamond" earrings. I was so excited. I had been asking for some, nothing big and fancy, just a simple pair of diamond earrings and sure enough, there they were on Christmas. I opened the box and was hootin' & hollerin'. I tore them out of the box and put them on. Hubby was just quiet. I asked how they looked, got up, looked in a mirror. I was thrilled. Then I went back to the box to close it, put the paper thing back in there. I saw in the box it said 'Target'. I said, "wow, I didn't know Target sold diamond earrings." Hubby, "They don't."
It was too funny. I did eventually get some a few years later. But it was a funny story.
