Happy Birthday!!

Guess what today is? It's my birthday!!! My sis says that I need to start going backwards on the birthdays... She has a point. #41 on this day. I have been having a fairly grand day- all aside from having to euthanize my cat... but let's not talk about that. Look what I woke up to find draped across my bedroom door:

Wasn't that sweet? My four youngest were very busy quite early this morning. My husband gave me a "heads up" about heading out of the bedroom rather carefully. They know orange is my favorite color and then they added the pretty blue streamers and snowflakes. How could I not have a wonderful day when they were so thoughtful? Mom and my sisses and I went shopping, today, and had lunch at one of my favorite restaurants- Mexican. Got home all tired. My sweet man put up the most wonderful swings in the yard for me- said he would be very happy to find me crocheting on it when he gets home in the evenings. I aim to please. We are suffering from too much rain, right now, but as soon as the weather cooperates, I plan to be out there. We are baking a lasagna and garlic bread for dinner- they wouldn't let me bake my own birthday cake, so I guess they have plans.

Happy happy 41st!!! I thought of you even more than usual yesterday!!!

That photo of the youngest three has got me all teary-eyed. (They're good tears though.) How very sweet they are! And what a delight to wake up to! You certainly deserve any little bit of fuss!

Lotsa birthday hugs to you from me, Nines!!!

Happy, happy day to you, you sweet YOUNG thing. And the operative word here is young. And sweet, too. I hope your birthday is the best one yet.

Happy birthday! Sorry I'm late (I was traveling and got behind in blog reading). Sounds like such a lovely day. Isn't it wonderful when the kids show how much they love you? And enjoy the swing -- sounds so pleasant!
