Birthday





My sweet children threw me a birthday party last week.  I meant to post pictures and tell about it earlier...  On Wed. I had a Dr. appt., the kids were thrilled because they had big plans for my birthday.  On Tuesday Jackie, with supervision from my mom, made me a cake from scratch.  It was marvelous!  While I was at the Dr. the kids decorated the house.  I came home to balloons on the mailbox.  So sweet.  Upon entering the house they were all wishing me a happy birthday and had the sweetest little hearts about them.  They put up streamers in the breakfast nook and balloons as well.  They even came up with a game called, "pin the apron on the cook."  I was blindfolded and spun around and told to pin on the apron... Even little Silas and Libby played along without blindfolds of course.  With whatever money they could scrounge they bought party blowers and balloons. Though I should mention they came up short on balloon money and inquired from our Pastor's wife if she might provide them with some balloons and they'd pay her back later.  We had such a fun celebration and the effort to make it special, is indeed what made it special.  Thank you children!
