Hello everyone! Thank you so much for all the wonderful birthday wishes!!! Quite often I hear people talking about how they doubt the ability to have friends on the internet. I want to tell them about you all, my sweet friends in blogland! You really made my birthday special, so thank you again for all the birthday wishes. I appreciate every one of them.
I was so excited to find out that I won my friend Anita's Valentine Heart Giveaway. Look at what she is sending me in the mail...
Isn't it just beautiful?!! Thank you , Anita!
My mother-in-law took Grace and I birthday shopping this past weekend and I got this new birdbath/watering station. So far the birds are scared of it, but I'm sure they'll warm up to it eventually!
My parents and sister sent me this sweet Peter Rabbit Calendar and a Donna Dewberry painting book. I can't wait to get out my paint brushes. Have any of you tried her method of painting?
My sister sent me this lovely set of gardening note cards....don't they make you wish for spring?!
My favorite gifts were from the girls and Benjamin. First thing in the morning, Emily gave me an assortment of things. A silk rose, a toy top, coins, all things that were special to her, tied up in a lavender sachet bag.
Grace wrote me two stories: The Magic Horse and The Magic Acorn. Both wonderful, of course! :0) Both girls also got me some note cards (I guess I should get caught up on my letter writing!) and Benjamin gave me his favorite pen and pencil, which he wrapped up in paper that he drew wonderful pictures all over.
As you can see, I was very spoiled by my friends and family! Thank you again, for all the birthday wishes and for letting me share about my special day.
