Another Birthday!

In my last post, I mentioned how I had computer issues and that those issues had kept me away from blogging.  Well, no sooner did I post that, and our internet started having issues!  It has taken until today to get it going correctly, again. So, here we are with a new post. :) Hopefully, the computer and the internet will cooperate for a while and I can keep posting.  :)

Yesterday was my birthday.  The UPS Store guy came home and took me to dinner! We went to the Cheesecake Factory!  When dessert time came, I ordered their Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake. I love that flavor.  I have tried other flavors, but this is my favorite.  What I didn't know was, he told the server it was my birthday!  So, I was serenaded.  :)

Pretty cake and plate, isn't it? 

A couple of weeks ago, I received a box from my SIL Cathy.  There were 3 birthday gifts inside.  One for me, one for Rebekah and one for Anna.  :)  Our birthdays are within 4 weeks of each other.  We were to open the gifts together, cause that would be more fun.  The day after the box arrived, I couldn't stand not knowing what was inside, so, I drove to Rebekah's picked her and the girls up and then we went to Anna's home. 

Cathy has been VERY busy this past year.  We each opened up a quilt, made just for us.  :)  Mine is called Square Dance(because I am a transplanted New Yorker living in Texas and some of the reds look like a bandana), Rebekah's has flowers appliqued on it(she really has a pretty yard, with lots of flowers and she loves flowers!) and Anna's is blue, because this was the year of the boy.  :) 

Here we are modeling our beautiful quilts.  We get to wrap up in them on chilly evenings and we stay really warm. Thanks, Cathy!  You sure made us happy!  :)

Thanks to our photographers, the granddaughters!
