Another Year Older

Today was a really busy day-Brandon's Christmas Party at school and I am his room mom, so for days I have been getting all the crafts ready for 5 different stations so that we could have a fun yet some what organized party.  We had a great time. Fun was had by all.

Brandon's teacher opening her gifts we got her.

Then I flew home to pick up the house a little before my father in love showed up to stay for a week with us for Christmas.
Then my sweet family gave me my birthday presents and we went to Logan's Steak House for my birthday dinner.  It was a great birthday-still not sure I like stating that I am in my 40's but there is no turning back now! lol
It was a great day-I am tired and still haven't picked up my Christmas cards to mail out-really late this year with that.   All of the kids having the flu last week really threw my schedule off.  So that is a task for the morning.  The kids have half a day of school so when I drop them off the girls and I will run out to do those last minute things, like picking up our photo cards at Sams and turkey and all the stuff for sides to make for Christmas dinner on Saturday.
My kids made me pop up birthday cards with Garfield and Odie in them (hand draw and really cute) my daughter, Alyssa made my a flower card and a picture frame with her and Analeigh in it (very sweet-it is magnetic so it goes on the fridge) and my sweet hubby got me some Mary Kay make up I use and a gift certificate to get my nails done at a place here in town-and my father in love got me a $50.00 gift card to CATO.  I was spoiled and it was fun! smile
Most of all I had a really great day with the people I love the most-it reminded me how blessed I am.  God is good and even though I thought 41 was a long way off just a few years ago-and I was sad last year about turning 40-I am so blessed for every day God has given me with the sweet blessings I call my hubby and kids and I pray that I live to be at least 82 or more so I can look back at this day and remember how young I was. lol!!
I did have a friend believe when I told her I turned 35 today so that might have been the best present-I thought well at least she didn't think I looked 41!  So that was good.
Thankful for a blessed day-for another year full of blessings-and for a family that loves me no matter what age I am.
On this Pathway-
