Birthday Fun

May 30th was my birthday, and we had fun celebrating for several days! At breakfast that morning, the boys gave me my birthday present. They brought me a dwarf gardenia bush. I potted it and it is sitting next to our garden tub. It's full of buds, so in a few days, I'll have a heavenly smelling bedroom and bathroom! Brent combined my Mother's Day and birthday gifts and gave me the cushions and umbrella I wanted for our deck furniture. We are all really enjoying them!

That morning we had planned to go to church, but Coleman and Jonathan were both sick and running fevers, so we stayed home. Then, I went to a shower for a PC friend who is expecting her first yahoo. On the way, I got my favorite lunch, a BLT from Sonic and a cherry coke with extra cherry. Yum!! The shower was for Cathy, and it was given by her housemates from PC, which included. . .

Aunt Mer Mer!! So yay for a great birthday with my favorite sister! She came home from Decatur with me that night and Brent cooked us an awesome steak from Green's Grocery. They have the absolute best meats I have ever bought. Their ribeye has become our "go to" special occasion dinner. We had baked potatoes, salad, rolls, and a carrot cake from Green's for dessert. It was a fabulous birthday supper. Here are a couple of pictures from that night.

I'll share the rest of Aunt Mer Mer's visit tomorrow.
