It's the thought that counts

I never believed my Mom when she said that she loved anything we got her. Well, I can say now that I am sure that was true...I feel the same way. Dan let the kids pick out their own gifts for me. It was such a special birthday. Here I am modeling my gifts:

slippers that were girls sz 2-3 (yes, my feet hang 2 inches off the back)

pink fuzzy socks

an awesome pink and purple umbrella

a mickey shirt that is a little small (excuse the belly)

Eeyore pj bottoms

a pine cone

After putting everything on, the kids thought that I looked "beautiful". How cute! Dan took me to a wonderful dinner at On the Border (YUM! and thank you so much, Hollie for taking my kids!) where John and Saira met us (thanks guys, it meant a lot!) and then we went to Dick's Sporting Goods to look at running stuff and on the Kohls where I got the feather weight vacuum I have been wanting.

Thanks for making my day extra special, Dan. For the first time in six years, I can truthfully say that my birthday didn't suck. :-) Ha ha!

And thank you to all of you for the cards, birthday emails, and calls.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, neither shadow that is cast by turning. ~James 1:17
