It was GREAT to have so many birthday wishes!
I had a FABULOUS day filled with presents and cards,
phone calls and emails ,
shopping and signing up for giveaways (heehee) and girlfriends that sang
Happy Birthday to me.....and grandkids that sang
their sweet Birthday song over the phone,
even a music play list (thanks David) !
I love everything I received and the special greetings from around the world.
One of the sweetest emails I got was from
Aihara Ramintessah Sanchez in Japan. She wrote "Happy Birthday dear!
Its nice meeting you tru OWOH. I hope you would enjoy your day!
What about gaining a new friend on your bday-thats ME! LOL!"

I feel so blessed to have such a precious family and so many friends.
And there is nothing better than gaining a new friend!
My day was filled with love.

Well....and a sombrero.......and ice cream and chocolate on my NOSE
......and more songs and GREAT Mexican food.....and FUN!
My face turned every shade of RED at Papas and Beer!

They really made me feel embarrassed.......I mean SPECIAL!!!

(Wonder if I can get away with ONE more FUN DAY!!!)

Happy happy birthday!
I loved reading about making a new friend. That is a gift!
I would love to share "Lavender Fairy" picture with you. She is from "The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies" by Cicely Mary Barker. Her song is also very sweet.

Glad you had a good BD and chocolate always makes a birthday or any day even better!
You look good, is it 29 and holding?
Enjoy your BD week my friend!
Yes, would be fun if we lived closer but we might get each other in more trouble, tee hee! Good trouble though.
