This weekend it was my turn for a special birthday celebration. My official date of birth is August 22, 1971. YIKES! I'm 48 years old! That tidbit of information can be our little secret. :)
Clint got busy in the kitchen baking me a delicious Hershey's Deluxe Chocolate Cake from scratch for the celebration. Am I spoiled or what? I believe so!
Everyone joined forces to buy a Chromebook Laptop for me to use for my studies, working on the blog, editing pictures, and putting together Bible study videos.
My parents sent me a box full of birthday blessings! So sweet of them! I'm grateful for every bit of it.
Tracy, Tracy, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With tomato plants, and pepper bells,
And pretty sunflowers all in a row.
I can't believe we're celebrating Alex's 10th birthday already! His first double digit birthday! My goodness where has the time gone? I can't believe he's sporting a man bun either! Kids these days! :)
He chose Minecraft for the theme of his party.
I purchased the plates and napkins from Party City. The Steve head was a hand-me-down from Aaron when he dressed up as Steve for Halloween one year.
He requested country fried steak, mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese, corn and green beans for his special birthday dinner. This put me in mind of a meal served at Cracker Barrel.
After dinner it was time to go on a treasure hunt to find his birthday gift. Pappy is always good at making up interesting and funny clues to help him find the treasure.
Of course opening up the gifts is the best part of any birthday party!
Who wants some orange creamsicle cake?
It's time for a round of Apples to Apples!
Happy birthday Alex! We love you!
