Thank You

Thanks for all the birthday wishes!  We had a wonderful Easter and I had a fantastic birthday!  It was, seriously, a beautiful day from start to finish!  My mom, dad and grandmother all came to visit from Florida.  I've missed them so much!  Hopefully they will all be moving here soon!
One of my gifts was a bunny for my garden.  Mom picked him out and my dad painted him pink for me.   He stands about 3 ft tall, so appropriate for an Easter birthday. :)  They also gave me a beautiful brooch pin that is a flower, the pedals are diamonds and the center is pearls, it's Beautiful!  My birthstone is diamonds and my son's birthstone is pearls, so this is my favorite combination.  It matches a diamond and pearl ring Kyle gave me for Mother's Day years ago.  One of my gifts from hubby & son is a beautiful birdbath, it reminds me of a sunflower.  The birds are really enjoying it!  
 Our Azaleas in our front yard started blooming on the Friday prior to Easter.  So far, we have pink and white and now purple and red have started blooming today.  They are absolutely beautiful! 
I've missed visiting my blogging friends!  I'll be catching up later today.  It's gorgeous here again today and so we are going out and about. :) 
 Happy Saturday to you!

Mr Bunny!

My baby boy!  Love you, Kyle!
Kyle was in charge of putting candles on the cake,
he put too many. ha ha


My Lovely Grandma!
I requested my mom to make this cake for me.  It has pineapple and it's so DELICIOUS!!
Love you, Mom!!!

So true....

Love my Dad!.

I just think it is so neat your grandmother is still with you and was able to celebrate your birthday with your family! She looks great!! Sounded like a wonderful day! I'm glad you are choosing to go out and about instead of blog reading; blogs are always here, nice weather might not be :)
