Oct. 6th

I had the most wonderful day yesterday. Our granddaughter was here and our daughter came and brought her three children by.

It was a surprise. She popped in the door right after we got home from Church. You see today is my Birthday. She had work today and the Kids all have school. In they came with the most beautiful Birthday cake ever. It has been years since I have had a Birthday Cake. This one brought me to tears

Her youngest son said to me Granny I picked the cake. It was a white cake with white icing decorated with Fall leaves and pumpkins and said Happy Birthday Granny. We ate so much cake and laughed all afternoon. This was a special moment etched upon my heart for all time. My daughter did everything she could to make this a very good time for me. I thank-you so much Amanda.

This afternoon after his work my husband is cooking me BBQ Ribs. He makes the most mouth watering fall off the bones ribs ever.

I am so Blessed to have people in my life who love me so much!!!!


see you there! said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! There is just nothing like a birthday cake shared with family and loved ones. Glad you had a great start to your new year.

Happy Birthday, Mary! If anyone deserves lavish attention on her birthday, it's certainly you. What a wonderful day you described.

Remember me? Life has been sooooo C-R-A-Z-Y lately...but a good kind of crazy, so I can't complain even though it has kept me from visiting. But...I'm home now...for a week or so anyway.

I've had fun reading all your posts I've missed. Gosh, you've been a busy bee.

Hi Mary,

Happy Belated Birthday to you, and thank you for visiting me. Please add me to your blogroll if you wish, and I hope you visit often. We don't live very far from each other. I live in Goodlettsville, Tn. I have added you to my blogroll as well.

Is the 6th your birthday or was it Sunday, the 5th? Mine is the 7th.
