It's my Birthday and a Surprise

My birthday is today. Yes, I am 50 and no that is not me.

This weekend, my daughter came home from Jacksonville. She, my husband, son and his girlfriend had planned a surprise birthday party for me. My dear friend and her mother came into town from NC and we went to yard sales on Sat. morning bright and early.

Little did I know what was going on in my home:

The Cake

Another view of the cake lit.... no, it didn't burn down the house.

My daughter made a four tiered two flavor cake. Isn't it pretty!!! I am proud of her attempting such a big cake. She even transported it from Jacksonville.... Amazing.

Miss H made some pretty cake balls. Not only were they so pretty but they were soooooo good.

A view of all the food these kids made, with the help of a dear friend.

Another view!!!

People waiting for me to get done yard saling.... I didn't know, I would have been home sooner.

On top of the party, my son made a DVD of pictures of me, my husband, my family and the dogs.

Here he is expecting me to kill him!!!!

My daughter and a dear friend.

My official present opener. Isn't he adorable.

The chef!!! and co-conspirator

It was a wonderful party and I was totally surprised and humbled by such good friends and a loving family. Although I might be getting older, my blessings are multiplied ten fold every year by my friends and family.

I thought I would leave you with a picture of my lovely children.

P.S. I am not turning off comments because my husband and daughter are out of town today and I need to feel some blogging love. Sad but true.
