The Birthday Party has begun!


My Oldest Daughter brought me this BEAUTIFUL afghan she made!  I have been admiring it for months as I watched it progress.  I really thought she was making it for herself.  I admit I was a little bit envious…especially since I can’t crochet or knit.  It is just amazing! and part wool so very heavy and will be super warm when I am curled up in my Momma chair this winter!  EEEKKK so excited!  And this on top of having 5 of my 6 kids and my little grandson and my niece with me for supper last night.  Plus all these lovely LOVELY cards I received in Saturday’s mail!  This birthday is getting off to a great start!  I might not even feel bad about being SOOOOO old!


I think Rachel and I will bake cupcakes for Tuesday.  And of course do the drawing…duh!  I have quite a little stash of things for the lucky winner! Happy Birthday to ME!

What a beautiful gift! I’m sure it was made by loving hands that show how much you are loved by your daughter. What a blessing.
