my parents sent me spa day money which is always lovely but the sweeter gift was this book. I couldn't think of any better way to start each day.
"When we call on God, He bends down His ear to listen, as a father bends down to listen to his little child." - Elizabeth Charles
Even though I'm not a tot anymore, i told my pappa i'm so thankful he always listens.
this is the first year in 27 that our pappa doesn't buy me & marianne two sets of birthday balloons because it's the first year we don't get to spend our birthday together. :(
Thank God for Skype! here's a shot of me on the other end my family took yesterday. (look at me cheesin'-- i was so happy to be talking to my family all at once)
i love you birthday girl twinkie!!!
ps. my momma made our Big Bird cake in the first photo. Last night my husband came home right before midnight blowing a party whistle and carrying a cookie cake that had cookie monster on it and a birthday hat for me.
sweetest of all, it's the first year he gave me a birthday card that said wife.
please wish my better half a happy birthday too! xo
you can see why my tummy was aching when we skyped yesterday-- check out all my momma's delicious hors D'oeuvres! it's what marianne requested for dinner, another tradition we have-- momma makes both of us whatever we want so you can imagine in our household on our birthdays it was always twice the food! and always twice the love.
