Feelin' blessed to be 33!

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a great day! I came home from a morning run and the kids had made this sign for me and hung streamers down from the door where I came in.

My son, Bryce (we call him "Bud Boo") made me this card. He wants to take me on another date. This card is priceless! It's a keeper for sure.

This is the card Makenna made for me. Bryce helped her with the writing and she did the artwork. I love to hear her say "I love you Mommy"

I requested a cookie cake with homemade chocolate ice cream. My mom made it for me and my neices decorated it. It was yummy!

My kids made the day so much fun! Here is "my girl" Makenna.

My sister, Melanie came and watched the kids for a few hours so I could do a little shopping ALONE. Thanks Mel! That was a great gift; The gift of peace and quiet! I came home with this treasure. I have had my eye on this table at one of my favorite places for a year now and finally brought it home after the owner gave me a great deal. I love it!

This is the bike I am getting from the hubby! It is the "granny" bike I have been wanting. I can't wait to take it to the beach and "tool" around on it. Hopefully I still remember how to ride! This way, I can keep up with the kids. I am getting a pink one. We just have to find it in stock at Wal-Mart. It is the Huffy "Cransbrook Classic". It will bring back memories from my childhood when I had the Huffy "Dessert Rose" It was purple with a banana seat and a flower basket on the front. Does anyone else remember their old bike with fondness? I spent many hours on that bike. I need to get a basket for this one too.
Thanks for letting me share some birthday memories! I am blessed to be alive and be covered by the grace of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Hi Amy,
What a fun birthday! I love your new's such a great shape! I have a granny bike, too, only it has gears/speeds to help with the occasional hill. :-) Happy Birthday a bit late! :-) Susan
