i heart little people and big things richard makes
What a great birthday! Thanks for all the happy day wishes! I did have a fabulous day.
But the fun started on my birthday-eve with the opening of some super awesome packages.......
One very extravagant one from my in-laws. Thank you (you guys know me too well). I love the candy, chocolate, socks, shirt, game, card-that-is-actually-flower-seeds, money, book, stevens registration, and of course the census information (you goof).
And a fun filled package from my sister and her 3 crazy kiddos. It included home-movie of them making these gifts for me:
(a fly, an octopus and a pet fish). I love anything with googly eyes. The movie also included them singing happy birthday and merry Christmas at the same time (birthdays......christmas........its all the same!). Nothing better...............
My actual birthday started out kind of lonely and sad because richard had to go to seattle for work monday night and it was raining really hard on the bus ride to work. But when i got there it was okay because my boss bought me treats and my friend lorri gave me chocolate (everything is better with chocolate).
But when I got home (finally at about 8:00) I had some suprises on my doorstep! And this awesome video from 2 of my best friends - Miki and Xilone!
go here to see funny video
And Richard made me a larger than life birthday suprise: A Trellis!! I've got to find something to grow on this thing because the rose bush next to it probably isn't going to reach those kind of heights any time soon. ( love you babe - you are so great to know that I love a homemade gift more than anything you could buy me)
then we went out to eat because i had a coupon...we got a Huge'ole reuben and tried a whole buncha different kinds of mustards. After that - we hit they hay rich and nicole style: before 10:00 pm. I am so blessed to have a wonderful life full of caring and thoughtful friends and family! Thank-you for making my day!!
