My Birthday celebration

I had such a great time last night for my Birthday. My brother and sister-in-law came up from Alabama. Rick's birthday was on the 3rd of this month, mine was yesterday, and Moms is next friday. We ate dinner at Mom's house and had cake and Ice cream too.

We didn't have any candles on the cake so I was pretending to blow out the candles. Mom was laughing at my goofy antics. Rick was trying to not burst out laughing. Daniel came in with presents for us all. I got a great card with Money in it and a gift card for $50 from Michaels(guess where Mom and I are going tomorrow.)
Daniel found some cool Ionic salt lights at Walgreens. He bought one for Mom and Rick and Me. They are suppose to be very healing for such ailments as Arthritus, Asthama, and other general aches and pains. Here is Mom with hers, she is pondering whether it might work miracles for her,,lol.

Daniel also bought her a new vacuum cleaner which is just like ours that she liked so much. She was really tickled over it. Theirs was old and heavy to push and this one is bagless and lighter weight. I usually do the vacuuming at their house so I am glad he bought that too. Its a great vacuum cleaner and on sale now at Home Depot for $39. We actually have 2 of them now at our house, 1 for downstair and 1 for upstairs.
I Love this picture of her. She had so much fun last night and it really helped to get all of our minds off of her up coming surgery on Monday.
My brother and SIL gave me the cutest little Solar dog light for my yard. My SIL knows I Love yard art and I feel in Love with this guy.

And here are a few more pics from our fun last night.

My brother, Rick and SIL, Sarah spent the night at our house and we stayed up pretty late talking and laughing alot. It was a wonderful birthday. I am so glad I got to spend it with my family. My brother is so much fun to be with and we are so close,,,I Love him and Sarah so very much. And so glad that Mom had so much fun too.
Tomorrow I will post pics of all the great cards and ATCs that I got from all of my Art and Blogger friends. I also got alot of Birthday phone calls from alot of my wonderful friends. So it was a excellent birthday!
I hope every one is having a great week-end!!!!

Terrific party get-to-gether! Glad you all had such a good time.

I laughed about lady's advice to Annie! Blue LOVED his baths - so much that when I'd run bath water for the Grandson I'd turn around and Blue would be in the tub.

Have fun at Micheals!

It looks as if you had a great celebration! There's nothing better than being surrounded by the ones you love. I just love the smile on your face in that photo with one of your gifts. You just look soooo happy.

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow and sending lots of good thoughts your way.
