Aw, Shucks!

Well, it's been pretty good for a Wednesday.  I actually will have more to post about my birthday on Friday, but I wanted to get a couple of thanks out there today.  


I got the older girls up for school as usual at 6:20, and then since it was my birthday I curled up in my favorite chair with my warmest blanket and snoozed until it was time for them to leave.  When they opened the front door they found this:






Which had apparently by delivered the night before by my sweet sister-in-law Kim and her family.  The note under "We love you" is letting me know that she'll be bringing dinner by tonight.  Score.  a)  Kim is a brilliant cook.  Yum!  b)  My girls had wanted to make tacos for me tonight for dinner, and when they saw this said, "Good, we can make the tacos Thursday.  That's two nights off!  ThAnKs, KiM (and Eric and Kids)!

Also, a package arrived last week from Shauna, who is so incredibly sweet to keep track of her bloggy friends' birthdays.  (I'm lucky I'm keeping track of all of your blogs.)  Since I'm a little mental about not opening presents early, this afternoon I opened a talk from President Hinckley called "In the Arms of His Love," a picture of the Savior, and a card and magnet that read, "The most precious things are not things."  Shauna also posted on her blog about my birthday.

ThAnKs, ShAuNa!!

Larry and I went to Subway for lunch, and I came home to sixteen Facebook birthday greetings and seven new birthday comments on my last post.  Thanks to everyone for contributing to a great birthday!
