Today Is My BIRTHDAY!!!!!

I started out writing this morning and I'm just now getting back to it. I guess the title should say "Today Was My Birthday". Anyway Katie went shopping for me and she spent some of HER birthday money on me! I told her that was so sweet of her and she made me wanna cry. Kelsey also bought me a present with her hard earned KFC money. Here's Katie's gift first.....



A Darius Rucker CD, a necklace that says "Faith", and a new wallet. I did tell her a while back that I wanted the CD for my birthday but the other two things she picked out by herself!

Kelsey's gift.......



The new Keith Urban CD. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Keith Urban!

Jimmy's gift......



He gave me a card and I thought that's all I was getting because I told him I wanted a new dress for Easter. When I walked into the kitchen he told me my gift was out by the grill. It's a weeping willow tree. I have so been wanting one!

And finally my SIL made this butterfly cake for me.



She makes the best cakes. Her chocolate cakes are my favorite and that's what I got. Notice my hair in the picture. When my Aunt was here for Katie's party she gave me money for my birthday. So, I went this afternoon and got my hair cut and highlighted.



I absolutely do NOT take good pictures. I love my new do and it feels soooo much better!

After I was done at the salon Katie and I went shopping for that new Easter dress I was wanting. Jimmy and Kelsey were both working so it was just me and my Katie Bug. We also ate supper at Smithfield's.

I was a little sad this m
orning. I miss my Mama everyday but I think the day I miss her most is my birthday! I did have a great day, though.

Blessings,

Oh Susan, what a nice day you had. Happy Birthday!!! Your gifts were all so nice and special. I especially loved the butterfly cake. That made my mouth water..lol. Your hair looks really pretty. That was a nice treat for you on your day. I still have my mom, but not my dad and I completely understand about that feeling of missing someone on special days.

I'm glad that you got your tree and you had such a special day.

May God Bless you and your family and your church service this special weekend. Happy Easter.

Blessings,
Gigi
