I just want to say that I had one of the best birthdays ever! I heard from more friends this year than any year I can remember in the past. Thanks everyone! And I literally haven't cooked since Saturday night. I was treated to dinner on Sunday night, lunch on Monday, dinner on Tuesday, and dinner again on Wednesday night. Michael stopped in for two nights on his way from Texas to Nevada and treated us to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. It's a great moment when your child picks up the tab! :) Craig picked out the card above because the dog looks like Saby would have as a puppy. (We adopted her at age seven.) And I enjoyed all my birthday cards and gifts!

You know I love cake! The cake above was a gift from a friend. There's a little story about the bee on that cake. Only God knows what gets into kids' heads! When we were in early grade school (first grade?), we made a game out of sitting on bees on the way home from school. When done properly, the skirt is tucked underneath the bottom and legs to guard against stings, but Jenny forgot to tuck and ended up stung! Ha! I think our bee-sitting ended that day?

Anyway, I'm a lucky girl to have such great friends and family! Besos to everyone!

Here's one of my favorite songs.

Happy birthday Baby! You lucky girl. And Saby, how lucky she is to have someone who sees her as ageless. We should all be so lucky, no?

Happy Birthday, Beck.
Sounds like it was well worth aging. LOL

Our "bee collecting" did end that day. I'm still not sure I have gotten over the embarrassment of having your mom pick the stinger out of my butt.

But was that really the stupidest thing we did in Oswego? Ah, the days of our youth. HA HA

Cake! I love cake and I have yet to find a really good one down here. (other than from my own oven!) Love that song too! So, I guess a belated Happy Birthday is in order!

Thanks to all of you! Wayne, we've tasted some cakes at ballpark tacos that were pretty dang good, but that's the only good bakery item I've had on Isla.

Jenny, I still remember when the bumble bee bigger than the hummingbird came visiting in March when you and Judy were visiting. No sitting on that one! And I'm sure I'll eventually get to some of our other stupid stunts.

Doog, I keep track of your blog and loved your latest!

And Zina, Saby is pretty ageless so far! I guess I need to get out there and chase the ducks too! Ha!

Glad you had such a good Beck! Do elephants age?

Frank, I think their ears just get bigger! Ha!
