A Birthday Weekend to Remember!

Awesome Cake at the Nystroms

I’ve had an amazing birthday weekend! WOW!

Last Friday we enjoyed dinner with good friend’s Marty and Jeanne Nystrom and Jeff and Sarah Jones.

A strange wind storm knocked the power out but we managed with lanterns until the power came back on.

My Bestie Jeanne always knows how to make a girl feel special.

Saturday I enjoyed the sunshine and worked in my yard.

The flowers Steve planted for Mother’s day are growing and I’ve added more with my birthday money from my father-in-law.

My yard is looking better every day.

While we watched a movie downstairs, Steve decorated our family room. He’s been teasing me because it took me a couple trips upstairs to notice that huge balloon!

Sunday, my “official” birthday was my favorite day. Church with Pastor Jude preaching. Zane and Kelsey over for lunch. Looking at their photos from England and Ireland was great fun.

We laughed over the goofy photos we took with my new iPad!

Happy Birthday to Me!

It was the birthday that kept on going with dinner at the Halvorson’s.

Barbara and Elling Halvorson were home so I enjoyed hanging with them. Yummy BBQ with Barbara’s potatoe salad.

Elling led a beautiful round of Happy Birthday as they presented me with yet another yummy cake.

More laughs with the photo booth on my iPad with Rod, Randy, John and Kent.

Monday we had a Memorial Day BBQ with Jeff and Sarah Jones.

Ray and Laura Clavero joined us. All the Nystrom’s were there too.

Ray and Jeff - Kings of the Grill

It was a battle for King of the Grill between Jeff’s filet mignon and Ray’s rib-eye steak.

It was hard to go back to work on Tuesday after all the celebrating.

I am truly blessed.

May the God of HOPE fill YOUR birthday with JOY and PEACE and LOVE as you TRUST in HIM.

God Bless Your Heart,
