Birthday week is over

So my birthday week is over.

Its sad I know.

Here's a recap!

Tuesday morning Cindy and her boys came to town. We ate out for lunch, I took them for a drive around town(it didn't take long) and we swam all afternoon. Stephen grilled hamburgers and Cindy and I played on the computer-we just love Facebook! I'm not sure where the kids were. NO!!! I'm just joking they were playing Wii.

Wednesday morning I began packing. We had found out Tuesday afternoon that our former music minister in Augusta had died and so we were headed to Augusta for the afternoon. It cut Cindy's trip short and I hated that part, but we had fun in the 24 hours we had together.

Thursday morning we woke up and went to Longview to see Mamaw and Uncle David. We got there a little after lunch. As soon as we unpacked the van the kids found a cabinet full of games and never stopped playing until we left. Uncle David grilled for supper and it was wonderful.

My birthday presents and cake were sitting around the table and I had had enough of waiting, so we ate birthday cake at 9:00 that night. Fun times!!!

Friday night we had fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob, green beans, salad, and homemade rolls. Peach cobbler, lemon pie, and birthday cake for dessert. OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS GOOD!!!! I know I made Mamaw work really hard and I'm sorry for that. But, Mamaw, I think it was worth it! The kids are still talking about it.

Saturday we headed home. My birthday was over. Or so I thought.

Sunday I got to church and got 4 more gifts! How cool are church friends?! (you're cool too Leeann!HA!)

So birthday week is over but anniversary week is just beginning. We will be married 15 years Thursday! There is always something to celebrate around here!

I think its down right cruel that you named all the food yo Mammaw cooked. Sounds like those days of yesteryear when we would gather at Granny's to eat. Were the rolls Betty cooked the ones Granny was world famous for?
