My Birthday

I know this post has been long in coming.  I guess my main reason for procrastinating has been my lack of pictures.  Being the primary “photographer” in our house, being the center of attention, doesn’t allow for picture taking!  I did get a few pictures though, the rest will have to be explained in words!

My birthday started on Friday (though my actually birthday was Saturday).  My birthday doesn’t officially begin until I get a package from my mom.  :o)  You’ll see why!


She altered a coffee sleeve to act as a money holder!  So cute!


Look at all the fun stuff in there!  The card in front is from   my niece.  Two Warren Kimball pieces and two terrific books, plus the aforementioned money!  :o)  Thanks Mom!


On Saturday my children gave me a pile of gifts!  It’s different now having sons with an income, they are definitely more generous!  Some of the gifts I got included:  pot holders, cheese grater, cookies, chocolate, starbucks gift cards (yep, more than one!) and a tea pot!  I have this secret power, I think many moms do…to know what’s inside a gift before I open it!  I get much joy out of using my “powers” and impressing my children!  hahaha!

Saturday afternoon Mr. Taffy and I went out to lunch and test drove some 15 passenger vans.  :o)

Saturday evening we had fellowship at our friend’s house and it pretty much felt like a party with strawberry shortcake and more presents!

Sunday was the icing on the cake (that I didn’t have)!  Strawberry Taffy and I went and got makeover’s at Clinique!

Oh, I almost forgot!  When Mr. Taffy asked me what I wanted for my birthday, guess what I said?  A new kitchen faucet!






It was a great birthday!
