Happy Birthday to Me

I had an awesome birthday! Thanks to everyone that helped to make my day special(visits, gifts, phonecalls, emails, surprises, honks, "Happy Birthday!"s, blog comments, etc.) I had the best day. It started off with signs the girls made in the house wishing me a Happy Birthday.
Here is the one they taped on a window in the breakfast area. It was so sweet.

When I walked outside, I found the yard decorated with streamers and signs. It really surprised me. One of my best buds, Melissa, had done this at midnight. Thanks Melissa! I love ya!She even made a candy sign. I am so set in the candy department for a while....okay, maybe only a couple of days. What can I say? I like candy! Melissa, you are so awesome!
Joey decorated my car. I got a few honks to and from church:)
After a delicious steak dinner(Joey bbqs the best steak!), the girls helped make my birthday cake.
My sister, Tara, was the fearless cake decorator.
Didn't it turn out beautiful? Tara added frosted cake skirts to Polly Pocket dolls. It was so creative and so perdy! Thanks Tara! It went perfectly with the princess ballerina theme.
Ready to blow out my candles and eat some cake!(The cake was goooood-great job guys!)

Me and my man. Joey worked so hard yesterday. He cooked a big breakfast, an amazing dinner and helped the girls bake my cake. He even cleaned up after everything too. And he even gave me a massage later:) Thanks Joey for EVERYTHING! I love you!

Here's Cali laughing at Aubrey & Ella while they blew their party blowers.


Me hugging my Ella after she gave me her sweet handmade card.
Aubrey holding her card she made for me. It said, "Thank you for taking care of me Mom. I love you." You're welcome Aubrey:) I love taking care of you girls!

Tara got me a Miss Piggy card(and gifts too). It was so hilarious. It said inside, "Party till you break a heel."

After presents,(Joey's gift was my plane ticket to visit Laura. He also made me this classical CD of music that I have fond memories of dancing and being silly to with my sister when we were kids.) So, we turned the volume up and got down with our funky selves. The kids had fun being silly and dancing.


I had a great day filled with family, friends, food & fun. I couldn't have asked for a better day!
