My Birthday Surprises!!





I arrived home from work and had a wonderful edible arrangement with a balloon from my sister, her BBF plus their kids; also beautiful flowers in a vase and a teddy bear for Lizzy from my Mom, and a visit just now from my Florida cousin CR!! Yeah!!

My favorite so far is the chocolate covered bananas! WOW are they delicious!! Can you see that some are missing from the picture??

CR and her parents gave me (and DH) a Key Lime tree and a shrimp casting net (really, just what I asked for!). She arrived tonight with a bottle of French red wine - also our favorite.

Too bad this is a work night, but we will have fun as a special night out is happening over Memorial Day in St. Augustine. I finally planned something as I kept postponing any special party not knowing for months when the IA would happen!! So the family will get together then - we love any excuse for a family party! See you then!
