Many dear friends blessed me with a surprise card shower for my birthday.
Over 60 cards!!!
Many thanks to those of you who sent birthday wishes via email and comments, as well!
My children tried so hard to make my day a special one, even sending a special delegation to tell me, "Mommy, we want you to have a really happy birthday, so we're going to try really hard to be good and kind to each other and not fight!" The thought was sweet even if they weren't entirely successful in their endeavors on that end! :)
Rose and Lor went all out in making a special supper and decorating the table. We spent the evening playing "Uno" with the littles while the older children cleaned up dishes, and then doing Shrinky Dinks with the older children after the littles went to bed... I am so richly blessed!!!
