Woohoo for birthdays, celebrations, & fun family time!!

This weekend was a really great one. It began with us getting to see Jax who was gone waaaay too long on vacay without us! (I have one more picture blog of their trip to post.) 

Saturday night was the night of my family birthday dinner. 

My family has at least one birthday a month from June-January, so we do a LOT of celebrating. (& we all love cookie cake!)

My family is totally that family that celebrates every little thing that happens. Basically, we're always looking for a reason to celebrate!

D & Pops (his Dad) had revival services to lead at D's uncle's church in TX, so that's what we did Sunday. We made it a big family get-together for D's side of the family & we really enjoyed it. We got to visit with family we haven't seen in a long time, ate a big yummy family lunch after church, & see D's cousin's beautiful house he & his wife just built. I'm so mad at myself for not taking pictures! I'll have to wait for Aunt Teresa to post hers & I'll snag some.

The boys & I went back to Shreveport that afternoon to relax with my family & hang out in & around my brother's pool. It was a long, relaxing day!

I got way too many fun goodies for my birthday! D & the boys got me a laptop so I can blog & write on it. I love it of course!! My Brother & Sis-in-Love's gift goes with that-they gave me a gift card to get an external hard drive for the laptop so I can save all my picture files onto it. My parents & Mammaw (& a few people from my church family) gave me money for my birthday. That's always a great gift! :) & my Mom also bought me a bunch of things from my "wish list" to add to my "Big Birthday."

The only thing that could have made it better is if I had been able to see my church family too. 

I had a really great day. I LOVE TO CELEBRATE!!

** Friends who are in the area! Come join us for Jax & John's birthday party this Saturday!!! Let me know if you want to come & I'll give you the details!
