Holy Cow, I've turned 48 years old. (I mean 29 years old - *wink) Man that seems old!!! It isn't too many more years until I reach 50 years old - that is kind of scary.
Brady made me this cute picture on the white board that sits on the front of our refrigerator. He's such a cute kid!
Jason and Sharon show up around 5 PM to celebrate my birthday with me. They gave me a wonderful card and a zester. Brady told Jason I needed a zester because while I was making Kimmie's orange rolls, I used my cheese grater on the orange rind (which I always do). It's a fun present that I have already used - I'm loving it! Thanks Jason and Sharon!!!
The card was wonderful and tender. This is what it said:
On your birthday Mom
A mother's love always brings your heart back home.
Mom, just knowing you're there and that you love me makes a difference in my days and reminds me how lucky I am to have you.....
....and for all the times I forget to tell you, I want you to know how important you are to me and how much I'll always love you.
AAaaaaaahhh!!!! Jason is such a sweet loving son... I do feel loved!
Then we headed off to dinner at the Cracker Barrel.
I've never been to the Cracker Barrel to eat. I think the chef was having an "off" day - the food wasn't that great... Oh well... it was nice to be together with family celebrating my birthday. They (Cracker Barrel) even gave me a free piece of cherry cheese cake for my birthday.
After dinner we couldn't decide on what movie we wanted to watch, so we came home a played a game of Phase 10. I enjoy being with my children! We have such a great time together.
I also received an awesome gift in the mail from my dear blog friend, Ann Marie. It's it cool? I also loved the homemade card - I'm always amazed that people make such beautiful cards.
Thanks Ann Marie... I love it!!
One of my Primary children Annalee brought me a card and some nice smelling soap for my birthday.
It's always sweet when people call or stop by with a fun gift. More precious when it comes from your Primary children!! I received many, many phone calls from family and friends. It was great!
I thought this card was really cute that came from my little Brother Richard and his family. (They are the family who were just sealed in the temple.)
ha ha ha!! They always send the cutest card that crack me up!
But seriously - it is a huge number... I would look that way too - I mean I look like that when I look in the mirror... Who is that old woman in the mirror??? LOL!
The next day when I arrive at the first house I clean - there is a birthday gift... Really!!! I can't believe she even knew it was my birthday.
