Birthday Surprises

I think we should have birthdays at least twice a year! All the calls, emails, facebook posts, cards, surprise packages in the mail (Wow!) and personal visits make the day so fun!! I am so blessed to have you guys for friends!!

Mom doesn't keep special gifts and calls for birthdays. We have "UnBirthdays" all the time! Dad jokes with her that she won't have any inheritance to leave because she's going to spend it all now. I think she's on to something, though. I love giving little "I love yous" now while I can watch everyone enjoy themselves!

Today's picture is with my Birthday Ice Cream Buffet! Stacey was sooo sweet to bring over all these yummy flavors for a fun tasting. What a fun way to spend a few hours with friends!! Thanks, Stacey! You made my Bday special!

The children had made and wrapped special pictures for me, Chris brought home some chocolate dipped fruit (and a pink Guy Harvey shirt!) and the Lord sent a day of perfect weather we all enjoyed outside. That night, Seth came over to hang out with the kiddos while Chris & I ate some yummy dinner out. The gift of time was wonderful! I'm so grateful for birthdays- they're a chance to show love to each other and I definitely experienced this on April 10!!
