40th Birthday!

Starting the day with breakfast in bed! Thanks to my kids!

More birthday fun... enter my favorite restaurant!
Nah, it's really my best friend Erin's house to have brunch!

DING - DONG - the birthday girl is here!

Look at this beautiful table! See that picture of me at the table setting? A few years ago as a gag gift I gave them all a picture of me in a Jeweled Crown Tiara that I borrowed for Halloween. Now it's coming back to haunt me! Look at how BLONDE my hair is! Whoa!
But wait, now there is a new Tiara to wear!

This is Suzanne and I... self portrait of course!

Here I spied a birthday gift I HAD to touch! It was a jar filled with 40 written cards filled with wonderful and loving words that my friends think about me! I see tears of joy coming!

Oh my stars, my favorite breakfast! Eggs Benedict!
Blueberry Muffins!
Cranberry Jello Relish!

My birthday cake was called a Chocolate Zinger Cake with Chocolate frosting!
The secret Zinger ingredient was... a teaspoon of black pepper!
Now it's time for gifts~
Next it was time to do something with the kids! We have a brand new McDonald's near our house that is like the Taj Mahal of McDonalds - it's beautiful, if you could ever say a McDonalds was and I must admit, it's niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!
Yep, that's a flat screen TV with cable television streaming through.
The children's play area has faux leather furniture for the parents to relax in while sipping Espresso! Yep, it's got a Mc Cafe in it too.

Computers for the kids and check out this tubed play ground!
Even I had to play the Air Hockey game - still as fun as I remember it!
After that, we went shopping and loaded up with toys and goodies to bring home for the kids to complete their Operation Christmas Child Shoe boxes sponsored by Samaritan's Purse.
More fun still to come, so stay tuned!
