My cup runneth day in pictures.

Good morning, everyone!
OY!  I am a year older!!!  :-)
I was completely blown away by all of the love and consideration that went into the cards, gifts, notes, and the amazing thoughtfulness of everyone, so I decided to share my day in pictures.

This is what I woke up to...

Maddie's card...the back read...
"To a wonderful blessing from the Lord,
To the most wonderful, beautiful, creative, outstanding rose of a mother!  Your the prettiest red rose anyone can find.  Mom, you are more special than I can explain and God loves it when you are the best mother a kid could have or ever want or imagine. May God bless you on your birthday."
This kid has a way with words!!! So, I'm CERTAIN that I am not worthy of such praise, but this definitely had me crying 5 minutes out of bed.

Eleanor's handiwork

In true Jack fashion....soooo cute!

This is from Miss Madelyn, too!  She felted me the picture.  She is ALL about flowers, pink, strawberries and sparkles!

Don't mind the messy handwriting...this girl is ALL about quantity and not quality right now.  lol
She is my project QUEEN!

While napping on the sofa(I know, I know, but I had a sore throat :-) ), the mailman came...BOY!  Was that a treat!

My best friend sent me this package FULL of wonderful treats...can you even imagine?  I LOVED everything SO MUCH and it totally blew me away!  Organic treats, clothes, CHOCOLATE, clothes, jewelry, accessories...what MORE could a girl ask for!?!  The card even sang to was lovely.

We decided it was too beautiful outside to lay around, so we went to lunch and stopped at the thrift store!  YAY!  I scored some antique ironstone pieces for my collection($1),  a basket($1), summer clothes($5), some books($.25) and two movies for the boys($.50).  Have I ever mentioned that I love to thrift shop?  hahaha   This is my best attempt at a pic of all of us, lol.    If ONLY my arms were LONGER!

The tribe

The boys playing peacefully(for a minute) lol

When we got home, my husband called and had supper on it's way.  My favorite...soup from the local co-op.

 I love this stuff!

And I could definitely feel the love, lol!

My FAVORITE dessert, lemon bars!!!  I pretty much wolfed it down, sore throat and all!  :-) 

It was a good day.

And church last night, my mother-in-law brought two big cakes and we devoured those, too!  YUMMM!
That is my day in pictures(I really think I need a new camera, don't you?  lol) !  I hope you enjoyed them.  God is so good to each one of us, isn't HE?

Mary  :-) 

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 23
