After spending the morning in school, I was taken to a little cafe for lunch. That is just one of the many things I love about my hubby....he is so thoughtful. He didn't want me to have to cook on my birthday. Not having to clean up was another bonus :)
The kids did a great job of decorating the house with signs, balloons, and streamers. All the gifts that were secretly wrapped in the bedrooms were waiting on the coffee table to be opened. It didn't matter to me what was inside (even though I did like everything I received), the thought and love with which they were given far outweighed the gift.
Instead of a birthday cake, I made my very first cheese cake. My mouth watered as I sliced each piece. Then I scooped a spoon full of strawberries on the top. Some even wanted chocolate syrup drizzled over it (not me though). I'll sum up how it tasted in one word....
I'm already looking forward to my next birthday......mostly for a good excuse to make that cheese cake again *smile*.
I love my family so much! They did an awesome job of making my day special.
