Birthday Gifts

I woke up on my Birthday to find a big surprise on my blog. It was like opening a huge package with a big bow. Steph had taken over my blog and surprised me with pictures she took of my grand kids and the perfect post. Beth designed the Birthday design at the top. I was so overwhelmed with happiness and emotions. To think she would take the time to do this for me meant so much to me. She knows that pictures are the best gift to give me. I must have gotten over 100 wishes, including comments from everyone. I have the best daughter!


I received this special paperweight from my sister. It reminds me of our time we spent in Florida on the beach. I have it on my desk at work to dream about the next time we are together. I had been wanting a new Blog design, so Steph is having Beth design something for me. I have a few ideas and this paperweight is a hint of what's to come. My blog will be under construction, so stay tuned.

Have you ever had one of those birthday celebrations that seem to drag out for days? Mine started July 30th and ended Aug. 3. It started with the Fair (pictures to come), Girls night with Key Lime pie, Olive Garden, DQ pecan pie blizzard cake, and this delightful fudge cake that Jack wanted to dive in to. This apron represents my six grand kids, plus my grand-dog. Noah, Carter, Gray, Abby, Ivy, Jack & Sophie.
Abby & Jack gave me a really cute children's cookbook from one of my favorite cooks, Paula Deen, along with the apron. I plan on opening up this book and letting the grand kids cook for me. I will be posting more birthday celebration pictures soon. I have lots of fun pictures from our trip to the Fair. The highlight for me at the Fair was the Kenny Ahern show and how he opened his show by coming over to sit on my lap....very unexpected. It's almost like he knew it was my Birthday and I needed a big laugh....
Stay tuned for more birthday pictures.....and a new blog look.
