Yesterday was my birthday - and it started with a phone call from Brookelyn and Bailee. Brookie said, "I got up and said to myself, 'Today's Grammy's birthday, we have to give her a call.'" After a nice and very grown-up chat, Brookie gave the phone to Bailee - who, at age five, has the cutest little voice ever. Bailee said, "We got you a present. You're going to be so ticked off." I could hear Brookie whispering loudly to her, "no, shocked." "Oh yeah," said Bailee, "You're going to be so shocked." I had to keep from laughing out loud. I'm so glad I had my pen in hand to write that down. The day just got better as I got calls from my parents, Suzie, Merilee and others.
I just have to show you my 'surprise' from Scott. He decorated the dining room and got a cake and flowers - and some gifts from the dollar store. I had told him "no presents," because I got some nice stuff for Mother's Day - so he bought funny little gifts at Honks - and he enjoyed shopping there a lot more than wandering through Dillards.
There's a little lamb that says, "Ewe are special to me," and a ridiculous pair of chimps hugging. The pink plastic necklace says, "It's my birthday." It came in handy when we had dinner at Hamiltons - free dessert. He also got me a Shrek notebook, a trashy romance novel, some glue sticks and a pair of chip bag clips. lol
I looked out the window and saw that our good friend Dewey Forsberg had just pulled up. Bonnie had sent him to deliver some Bluebird chocolates - thanks Bonnie - I've been loving them all day!
I had to get some photos of Dewey's decked-out Jeep - adapted by his own company, Novak. I said, "Dewey, would you have dreamed 20 years ago that you would be doing what you're doing?" He laughed and said, "No way!"
