Happy Birthday to MEeeeeee! and our GIVEAWAY WINNER!

I had a great birthday earlier this week! My hubby bought an ice cream cake from carvel.

It came with an extra container of crunchies which the kids loved!

My best friend left my favorites on my doorstep for a special surprise!

I got beautiful cards from my friends, husband and family. My parents and my grandparents had money in them! Yay!
What to spend it on? Bills, groceries or clothes?

My girlfriend spoiled me and bought me these white chocolate beauties!

I got the necklace I ordered for my birthday from my husband. I love it and wear it everyday and will show a pic soon. But I have to show you the goodies from my kids. The younger ones were left to their own devices with Big sis away at camp. So, I received:

A cross necklace that we got for free at a yard sale 3 years ago and I let my youngest daughter keep in a little blue box she found in her closet.

The bottom of a heart shaped container I gave to my son with a polished rock and some pennies he pulled from his piggie bank.

and let's not forget the paper Christmas tree on the tartan plaid ribbon that my daughter made in church last December.

Were these presents made in haste?
You betcha.
But I am loved and it was a great day!

Oh, yeah and the chance to remind my kids over and over that it is mom's birthday and they need to be good- Priceless!!!
