Birthday Bash!

My birthday celebration actually began the night before
with surprise gifts and a delicious cake from my husband
and my step-daughter Krissy who was here visiting and
his nephew Billy. Tons of fun but no pics because
I was totally surprised! My husband surprised me
with a Blu Ray player for videos and Krissy got me "Eat
Pray Love" and "The Sound of Music" to watch on it. I
can't wait to see them on it!
Then, the night of my birthday was a party and yet another
chocolate cake that my daughter Jenny went to
get and a complete Chinese dinner--yummy!
This time, we were able to get a few pics.

Here's Ralph and I.

Too adorable!

And what would my birthday be without my little Jamie?

It was then time to open presents. Jenny had driven to
the French Quarter in the pouring rain in the morning and
got me this beautiful vintage style perfume bottle and amazing
pewter box with a crown at an exquisite gift store...
I fell in love with these!

Then, as if this birthday wasn't just so fun, I opened
a package from my friend Gayla in California and
there was this magnificent heart-shaped necklace!!
Did I mention I was in shock?

What a fun and amazing birthday!!!!!!

And thank you to all of you for your wonderful wishes!!!
