Birthday Fun....

I am very happy to say that I had a wonderful birthday today. Yes, I'm one year older making this year 46, but you know I didn't feel old today. I had a great day!! The day started out wonderful. I got so many well wishes from my China Sisters this morning via e-mail. Thank you Lynn, Michele, Pam, Susan, Cynthia, Sherry, and Mary!!!!
What a blessing to have such wonderful friends. I am so lucky to be with a group of ladies that I am going through this wait for our China Adoption with. You 8 are a true blessing to me.
Leigh, thank you for being such a wonderful friend for 4 years! I am so grateful that you stay in touch with me still. You and I are very fortunate to have our precious girls and to have found out that they were nannymates in their SWI. What a Red Thread we have!!!
Thank you to my parents for the phone call today,and the great phone set; it was good hearing from you. My oldest brother, Joe called this evening and talked with me. It was really special for him to call. And Ganny, thank you for your song today along with your card that came in the mail.
Last but not least Holly, Wendy and Mike treated me like a true queen for the evening. It was just a really good day.
Mike and the girls took me out to eat at one of our favorite places to eat here "La Plaza". It is family owned and has some of the best Authentic Mexican Food. They came out with this sombrero and a sopapilla. I was to wear the hat while they sang to me. Believe it or not the whole restaurant sang too. It was fun! Wendy got a kick out of it.
After we got home Mike and the girls gave me my birthday gifts. I received Mr. Magorium's Magical Emporium, a very nice trash dispenser (can) with bags for the kitchen, a water purifier, and a silver chain with a heart pendant from James Avery. Not to mention I got two potted house plants and some lovely roses from Mike earlier. I still need to down load those photos, but here are some from the restaurant.

Thank you all for making it a wonderful day. I love you all.
