Birthday Gifts From Family

I had a birthday back in December and was blessed with some beautiful gifts from my family and friends.

My granddaughter came to see me and brought me this beautiful bouquet that lasted two weeks.   She spent over an hour with me just catching up on her very busy life!

My son-in law came to visit with my daughter and he bought me this poinsettia and the leaves sparkled.  He included a card that made me misty and a gift card.

My daughter as always overdid in the gift department and she brought me these beauties!

Scoop necked t-shirts because I've got bleach spots on all of my old ones!

Another huge poinsettia and I'm going to try real hard to make them live until next December!  I know there's a trick to it but I haven't figured it out yet!

She has a real knack for finding cards that make me weepy and they mean so much because I know she meant every word the card had printed!

Heather bought me this beautiful yard ornament for my flower beds and even though the rose garden looks horrid right now this beauty really pretty's the place up!!

Up close you can see all the detail in it and it stands about five feet tall and spins in all directions.  I was with her on a shopping trip when she got and didn't even notice!!!

My son took us out to eat for my birthday a few days later at a new restaurant in New Castle call Bibo’s and I had the most wonderful calzone I’ve ever eaten.

Hubby never forgets my birthday and he had my gift hidden for a few days at the other farm but it arrived the night before so I could help him get it in the house where I wanted it!

My brand new recliner!!!

I got beautiful cards from friends, hand-knitted wash cloths from Margaret (early gift) , birthday wishes from email and blogging friends and this beautiful charm from a special friend that I used to work with!

Cheryl, a Farm Bureau friend, gave me this beautiful charm and I have it on my angel tree in the guest room!

All of these are given with love and make me realize how blessed I am to have them all in my life!  I never regret birthdays and getting older, I cherish them and thank God above that he still allows me to be on this earth with my loving family and friends another year!

    • It is beautiful when it spins especially in a white snow background. I know it will be just as beautiful again a background of green in the spring and summer and will draw attention to my roses if they make it through this crazy weather.
