Another year older, another year wiser? Not so sure on that one.
My birthday is actually Tuesday, but some of my family came down to visit and celebrate over the weekend — I am one lucky girl!
I pulled up to Mema’s house and she had the banner outside. It put a big smile on my face.
My Aunt surprised me with my favorite food: BOILED PEANUTS! I almost died of happiness.
The nephews –Day and Ford– came running in saying “Happy Birthday Jill! Happy Birthday Jill!” I could just tell they practiced it all day 🙂
Of course, Carlos came — we are born one day apart and celebrate every year together. Here is our birthday kids photo:
There is nothing better than being around the people you love for special occasions.
After we got done eating, my nephews ran over to me. I see the cake coming at me and everyone starts singing. Then I realize the boys had decorated it for me.
It was such a sweet moment. They were so excited to see it and help me blow out the candles. I love those boys with my whole heart.
I wasn’t surprised or anything?!
It was great to celebrate with close friends, laugh and remember all of the great times we have had together. Of course, we missed those who couldn’t be there. You know who you are.
