Sami's Skateboard

Grandma Faithie wanted to buy Sami a long board for his WELCOME TO THE FAMILY present.  Was it ever FUN to watch his eyes light up when he realized why were walking into THAT store!  Such a sweet boy we have!  He rode it in the parking lot while we loaded Kaleab into the car, and tore out of the vehicle once we got home and rode it into the evening.......

 This grin didn't wear off for days!

He got the board on July 5th, my birthday.  It made my heart soar to watch his excitement.  I felt like THAT was my birthday present!  {big grin}

What an extra special birthday it was, indeed!  BOTH BOYS HOME to help me celebrate and my MOM there too!  Not that Jeff and friends weren't enough to make my birthday special in the past, but I don't think another birthday could top the one this year!

The morning was a slow relaxing start with coffee and breakfast under the pergola in our back yard. My birthday presents were precious, one of which was from my Mom.  She got me a precious necklace from Lisa Leonard!
 Mom and me.
Before I got the necklace.

Should have turned this upright.  
Oh well, you get the jist of it!  :)

 The back of it says "god is faithful"
Oh, yes, faithful indeed!

We all went to Tucanos for dinner.  I chose it because it is one of Sami's favorite places to go.  He LOVES how they bring the meat to your table and carve right there.  He also loves the amazing varieties of meat to eat!  What am I saying?  SO.DO.I!!!!

I thought I escaped them singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me, that is, until my mom secretly made sure that they came to our table to "help me" celebrate!  They made me stand up and shake a marroca while they sang to me!  I was a bit shy to do it, but my heart was so FULL that it actually was easy to do!

THANKS to ALL of my family and friends who called, emailed and Facebooked me birthday messages!  Each one of you added to the specialness of my day!
