Saturday was my birthday. Oh, I will go ahead and tell you. I turned 41 and to be honest about it, I don't have any reason not to tell you that. My grandma lived to be 93. She gladly told her age and felt like "if God had let me celebrate another birthday, I shouldn't be ashamed of it." My family made my birthday very special. Here they are waiting for me to open the gifts from them.
When asked what kind of cake I wanted, I decided on a dessert rather than a decorated cake. This cake had caramel and chocolate chips in the middle. Served with my favorite mint chocolate chip ice cream, it was quite yummy.
Doyle got me a large Yankee candle. I have been smelling this one every time I went into a store that sold them. It is Vanilla Lime. It smells soooo good.
Julianna was so excited about my birthday because she has been taking sewing classes and she had made my gift. She made me a tote bag in earth tones and a cute pink and green pillow. She hand made my card with old buttons and did a chalk picture on black paper. It was so neat to receive such thoughtful gifts.
Samuel got me a family plaque with picture frames. I had wanted one of these, so I was very glad to get it.
Lydia got me a puzzle like the ones at Craker Barrel. We have all enjoyed this gift.
Joseph's gift was some delicious mints. He was very eager to share with me after I opened them up.
It was indeed a great day. I feel so blessed!!
