I used the numbers 8 and 5 so she wouldn't have so many candles to blow out. lol
She's been a widow for 28 yrs. now. God has blessed her with good health and sound mind.
She almost had me on her birthday. I came 4 days after hers. My brother's is one day after hers. We've been doing a lot of celebrating! lol
In fact, I got a new car for my B-day! Ours was 8 yrs. old and we had been thinking about a newer one next year but the deals on the 2010's were too good to pass up.
I went to pick it up and the guys at the dealership had put balloons on it for me.
The salesman and the Mgr. of the dealership gave me the keys and sang Happy Birthday to me! I was a little embarrassed but thought it was sweet.
My daughter Sarah lives here and gave me pretty jewelry. Andrea is far away in CA. I got a beautiful ring and turtleneck from her.
Last, but not least, is sweet Ivy who was born the day before my B-day and just turned two.
She loves food period-- that girl can out eat me any day. She loved her yummy cupcake. ( We pushed her hair back so she could dig in). lol
Well, no more birthdays till next Tuesday. Then sweet Emma will turn 11. She's the Pearl Harbor Day baby in the family. Ivy is the Veteran's Day Baby and Jonas was almost the 4th of July baby but popped out on the 3rd. instead. lol They made it easy for this Grammy to remember their birthdays. lol
After the celebrating, we've been doing a lot of decorating. I'll post those pics next week.
Have a great and safe weekend!
