The boys wanted me to open their presents to me first thing in the morning. They painted wooden bird house ornaments and made cards for me. Ben also bought me a gift card to Tim Hortons. He's so thoughtful.
Then we had to get going to violin lessons. After we were done, we went to the dollar store. Rebekah bought me a Mars Bar and Jacob bought me a Caramilk. When I asked him later if I could eat it, he asked, "Which one did I buy you?" I told him and he told me he ate it! So, he gave me a tootsie roll instead. He is so funny!
Rebekah also painted me a wooden bird house ornament and she and her friend worked all day to make me a beautiful birthday cake.

They did such a lovely job.
Later, Larry came home with some balloons, pop and chips. It kind of gave me the idea that we were expecting company, but I didn't say anything. And while we were eating supper, Larry handed me a jewelry box with a beautiful necklace with heart pendent.
When we were just done with supper, a vehicle pulled into our driveway and our really good friends showed up for a party! We had lots of fun. They came bearing gifts too. They are Mennonites from Mexico and brought us some Mexican beef soup with jalapenos and chocolate cheesecake.
Also, throughout the day my family and friends called to wish me Happy Birthday. I even was completely blessed by a friend who phoned. We hadn't talked much in the last few years and it was SO nice to hear from her.
Thank you to my family and friends for helping me have a wonderful birthday.
