Hello there! Happy September Friday! Thank you all so very much for the birthday wishes. You made my day that much more special. And special it was. I celebrated turning 53 in the best way I could imagine. I enjoyed a relaxing day at home, complete with homeschooling, a wonderful phone call with my momma, and dinner with all my people! Peyton made lasagna with garlic bread and my very favorite dessert. Madison brought ice cream and party decorations, and we all ate, visited, and laughed together. Rhett captured the evening perfectly in the group selfie! Some more photos of the happy day...
Pretty flowers from Steve's sister Sally and her husband. Hi Greg!
My not-so-little littles and three others that I am blessed to count as mine too...
Me and the hubby! ( We met when I was 17, and he was 16!!)
Cake? Who wants cake when you can have Chocolate Chip Cookie dessert????
I was blessed with thoughtful gifts from my friends and family, including this from Madison and Nicolas. She has had it since January! She found vintage Halloween wrapping paper and had Nicolas frame it. I love it.
And a photo of 53-year-old me, just so I can remember how blessed I am.
But enough about me! How are you, my friends? Any plans for the lovely weekend? Whatever you have planned, enjoy! Thanks for visiting!
I am happy to hear you had a wonderful Birthday surrounded by your family. You all look great. LOVE the flowers and the Halloween picture.ReplyDelete
We're going to dinner with a friend tomorrow night but other than that it's going to be low key. My favorite. Enjoy your weekend!!
A very happy belated birthday to you! How awesome that you were able to celebrate with the family! What a one of a kind gift the framed wrapping paper is!ReplyDelete
A table surrounded by ones you love - how better to celebrate!!! ... I mean, a cookie cake helps - LOLReplyDelete
I guess better late than never.... Happy Birthday! I loved this post of your joyous day filled with love, gifts and family. A perfect birthday I'd say.ReplyDelete
53 looks good on you! I love how Madison's gift speaks so perfectly to you! Vintage Halloween?! So perfect.ReplyDelete
You have a wonderful family and are so blessed!ReplyDelete
Yay!! I'm so happy you had a great birthday celebrating with your people! It sounds like it was a perfect day. Your cake looks delicious! I'm looking forward to relaxing and catching up around the house this weekend. Our first full week of online learning/homeschool was great, but I'm definitely a bit exhausted from the week. We are getting into a groove with it so I think next week will be much smoother. We are so happy and thankful to be able to school at home. It's such a blessing. Hope you have a nice weekend! I also hope the weather is cooler where you are.ReplyDelete

Looks like you had a great birthday. Love that shirt, and the Halloween 'poster.' Have you seen the kinda creepy looking vintage style Halloween figures at Walmart?ReplyDelete
So happy you had such a great day surrounded by your people! I can't think of a better gift for you my friend! Family, delicious food, flowers, gifts, and good times! 53 looks amazing on you! IT's been a quiet weekend here...just the way I like it! Miss you!! :)ReplyDelete
Yeah family with you for celebration of your birthday 🎂 God bless you!!! We rarely meet for birthday celebrations with our son and family but we still have good days. I was busy at Panera today and off tomorrow as usual on Sundays. I'm going to a memorial service for a high school friend tomorrow. Weather is cooler and hopefully more rain 🌧 soon. Have a good weekend. Lovely cookie for your birthday. Of course chocolate chip 🍪 are delicious and so is chocolate. 😋ReplyDelete

Happy birthday to you! May your year be filled with happiness and good health!!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful Birthday you had! Yaaaay for Rhett to have gotten a photo of all of you. Lasagne and garlic bread is perfect for your special day. That vintage framed wrapping paper is cool. And Peyton made a special birthday dessert for her mama. She always makes the most delightful treats. I think a little bit of whipped cream makes it even better. ; )ReplyDelete
