Thursday - birthdays . . .

Back to Monday with the girls - we celebrated Valentine's, Sue made me a chocolate cake, and they also brought me presents. (Thank you all). From right to left - Linda - Sue - Denise - Rose - and me.

I received a lovely mug (I used it all the time now) and a picture frame that I am putting in our picture - today! Thank you.

Cinnamon candle - smells delish and look at my name in calligraphy! Thank you.

The new Nicholas Sparks book, a calendar for the week (she knows me), and a set of dessert plates each one different. Thank you.

And a beautiful white picher - that can be used for gravy or flowers. :) Thank you.

Then for my daughter's birthday we went to her favorite place - Carrabba's and brought her - her favorite - cheesecake. Love you. Oh and the grandson - trying to be funny.

Love you always Kelly - happy birthday and many more. Love, Chatty mom.

A wonderful, wonderful birthday story... and I love the Melissa Etheridge quote. =)

Oh, what fun to have a night out with your girlfriends!! Sounds like a great time.

So your birthday and your daughter's birthday are close together, huh? That is me and my daughter...we're two and a half weeks apart, and we both just had "milestones" 50, her 21.

Are you fully healed from your surgery?


Susan said...

Oh Sandie, sounds like a great time. Wish, so much, I could have been there. Susan

I love the blue and white gift bag, it looks like a purse! And those dessert plates are so cute! I thought flowers were growing out of the mug, but I think it is a graphic! Your grandson is adorable!!

Awww - loved all the pictures.

Your daughter is beautiful, Sandie - a very Happy Birthday to her. (Grandson is such a goof - a lovable one, though!)

In your honor - and because you mentioned chocolate AND cheesecake in the same post - I'm munching on some mini M & M's.

For some odd reason, I just wanted you to know that!
