I made my cake myself, in case you didn’t guess.
I sent my brother Dave a text-picture of it and he replied, “It ain’t no lie!” LOL
I took my chances, guessing that Rich was leaving work to go shopping for my gifts, and sent him a message saying, “I’m sure you’ve already got my presents, but just in case, what I really want are some pretty houseplants and a snowflake necklace”
GUESS WHAT I GOT?
***exactly what I wished for, and more!***
When he got home, I asked him to take a picture of me with my cake. Of course he got the picture HE wanted, first.
The husband, and seven out of seven children also agreed, that the cake was no lie.
I LOVE my necklace, I have a special interest in snowflakes, because they are a clear demonstration of God’s art, such tiny and exquisite design went into each and every snowflake and no two are alike. If you live in the Northern climates, or meditate on all the billions of snowflakes that fall, and melt, each year…it just fills you with awe.
He went to a jewelry shop and found the necklace and also a pair of earrings, too. They were both in boxes and wrapped in silver paper, with a bow. I tore into them like an excited child.
And the plants! It is a sweet, romantic thought, imagining him at the Home Depot, considering the plants and choosing these. He said the lady at the checkout praised him.
He even brought home dinner.
We were so full after the pizza that it was actually hard to find room for my delicious cake.
Seth and Sarah were on my lap last year, and I wanted them on my lap this year, too.
(someday they will not fit)
We put three candles on the cake, and I was lucky to get that many. Rich had to search for them.
Who you cannot see in this picture, surrounding me, and singing for me:: Jacob, Ethan, Caleb, Rich, & Grace
I love our birthday celebrations….such fun, laughter, teasing, craziness, sugar….
Let Mom blow out her own candles!
I had a lovely day, it ain’t no lie!
Thank you for your well-wishes, I think I have the nicest friends in the world.
