Early Birthday Fun!

My birthday isn't till tomorrow...but it worked out better for all of us to have a lil birthday party at my mom's this evening! We had good fun and nice conversation! It was a beautiful evening as well! Madelyn couldn't wait to give me the card she got me...the front of it is the pic above. (It's a pic of a boom box, if you can't tell) and then this is the inside.....

Oh my goodness.....I must be getting sooo old!!! They are making fun of "mix tapes"!!!! ROFL! I used to listen to those all the time in high school!!! We made mix tapes for cheerleading and just to listen to! This card just totally cracked me up because it is totally spelling it out....I am getting OLD! It would be like me giving my mom a card that says to "break out the 8-tracks" ROFL!!!!

My sweet farmer boy, Chris. He's just too cute. His personality just makes this outfit work for him. He is proud of it...and although I always say how much I hate his overalls...I actually kinda like them...hehe...don't tell him though!!!

Chris and me:

The flowers my sister and Madelyn got me! (M even picked out the balloon!!!)

A pic of all the stuff my sister got me for my birthday! Isn't it all great??? I love it!

And a couple pics of the gifts my mom and dad got me! More spatterware!!!! YIPPEE!!! Just adding it to my collection!!! I just love spatterware/enamelware! I use my spatterware for our everyday dishes and my Warren Kimble Americana dishes that I have, as our "good" dishes!

It was such a nice evening! :) I hope you are all having a super nice weekend!!! xoxo Thank you so much for all the kind birthday wishes you have all sent my way! I truly appreciate each one!!! :)


  1. Sounds like a fabulous time!!
    By the way....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! my good friend.....and NO, you are not getting old!! heehee.....hey, watch it with the 8 track joke...LOL.....

  2. Hey girl - you are not old!! You are my kids age!! When my hubby and I were dating, he use dto find just the right 8 track tape to ply in the car - we thought we were soooo cool and we WERE!! LOL

    Have great day on your REAL birthday!!

  3. Nice haul, girl! :D Love those spatterware dishes too! And I also have a set of Warren Kimble dishes! What a coinkydink! Mine are called Brandon House and have stars around the edges of the plates, and the saucers have different American flag on each of them, and the coffee mugs also have the different flags. I only use them for special occassions. they were expensive (for me anyway!) LOL!
    Have a great birthday!
