Monday, April 1, I celebrated my birthday. My kids were determined to make my day special. They had been asking what meals I wanted, what kind of cake, and writing down my birthday suggestions.
My kids' goal for my birthday was to do whatever they could to make my day special because they love me. The thought and planning that went into Monday's activities meant more to me than the actual day. Four precious kids that call me "Mom" . These same kids see the real me and know I am far from perfect, yet.....they love me with all their hearts. You just can't get better than that!
So...back to my birthday celebration:
Breakfast: French toast
with strawberries and powdered sugar.....yummy!
(made by Ron and Daniel)
After breakfast the kids sent me to my room while they decorated around the house.
Each of the kids gave me some of my favorite snacks:
spicy peanuts, salted peanuts, candied almonds, sweet mint gum,
peach tea, carrot juice, and pop corn
With just a little bit of supervision from me, the kids made me a delicious dinner of taco rice. Then Sarah and Daniel made a scrumptious apple crisp that we ate while it was still hot with vanilla ice cream. We all liked it so much that we are going to have to have it again real soon.
Later in the evening I got a few phone calls from some special people which was an extra treat!
Guess what? I still think birthdays are fun - especially when they are spent with my favorite people!
Just for fun,
I thought I'd add a photo of the weather conditions on April 1, 2013
