The Big Bash!

I know you all have been dying to know the big question about my birthday. Did I really get to sleep late? Not exactly, but I did get to eat some delicious, crunchy homemade eggs! Definitely worth waking up early for.

Someday we will get birthday paper.

So exciting!!!!! More for my stash!

Francesca thought MY jellybeans were all for her!

My future Picasso.

These are oven mitts, but we may turn them into puppets.

Isabella drew me a picture of my dream boat.

and she also got me some fabulous wind chimes.

This is a flying cat from my sweet animal lover. 

I was really touched by Elliot's present. He got me a heart necklace and told me that every time I looked at it to remember how much he loved me. So sweet!

Jen sent me some presents in the mail! I was so excited! The kids wrapped them up for me.

Thank you Jen! Such a beautiful cross! When the light shines behind it, it really sparkles.

We like to party hardy!

Oh yea!!!!! 

They even put a card in the mail for me because they know how I love to get mail!

My friend, Pam, painted this beautiful picture of me and Victoria's hands! So amazing! I will treasure it always! Thank you Pam!

Carol gave me a beautiful ring and a cool wallet, since my old one was duct taped. Thank you so much Carol!

The ring is called "A Mother's Love".

Ta-Da, the birthday cake! No, they didn't bake it, but it came from a super fancy bakery.

I gotta wonder what Victoria is thinking. "Geez, another cake, don't these people ever do anything else?"

Theresa came over for some snuggles with the babies.

Sadly, we don't have any more birthdays for a while, but wait, Halloween is only a few months away! Oooohh, gotta bake a cool, spooky cake......maybe bob for apples.

I know, maybe a haunted house.........
