Marvelous Birthday

All I can say is that I had a marvelous, fantastic birthday party, thanks to my wonderful son, daughter in law, daughter and husband.
For the past few weeks, as mothers some times do, I was feeling a little under-appreciated, well the kiddos sure changed that for me yesterday. They pulled out all the stops and showered me with all the things I love best and best of all, they showed me how much they do appreciate me.

Late yesterday afternoon Emery took me shopping and when we got home, the house had been transformed into a Parisian theme. On my dinning room table stood a huge Eiffel tower. The colors of the party were pink, white and black and it looked as though they had hired a famous decorator to do the decorating, it was gorgeous. The food was incredible. The cake was a multilayer chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and frosted with a heavenly ganache There were chocolate tulip cups filled with mousse, and hand made gelato that was to die for.
Champagne on the table along with Dublin Dr Pepper (a family favorite) and sparkling fruit juice. We had amazing pizza, (my favorite food of all time ) for our meal.
Presents, flowers, beautiful cards, and the best of all, being surrounded by people I love. The little girls gave me lots and lots of kisses and plenty to smile about.
I didn't have to lift a finger to clean up either, Priscilla, Steven and Emery did it all !
I feel so blessed. Just wish Melissa could have been here, but at least I saw her just a couple weeks ago.
Life is good and I am expecting another marvelous year !

Happy, happy birthday Pat! I know this is late but I've been in Albuquerque tending my mom who had a kidney transplant two weeks ago. I'm so glad to be able to read your blog again too. I hope this next year of life brings many blessings your way. Lisa in NM
