I like my birthday!

I love birthdays. If anybody knows me really well, they know I think everybody's birthday is their own personal holiday and it should be treated as such. Steven was a kind soul and slept in until 10:00 a.m. today. He's so great. He's been happy for my birthday week. The earliest he has awaken this week was 8:00 a.m.
All week Darrell has been nervous, because he ordered my birthday present, and it wasn't supposed to be here until Sept. 29 but he really wanted me to have it for my birthday. (he's so cute.) Anyway, a package for Darrell came today, and it of course was my present. I literally had no idea what it was, and the box was really light. So, I just put the box on the table and left it till he got home. When he got home, he got all sneaky and took off for the bedroom. I sent Steven after him to see if I could find out anything, and all I could hear was Steven jabbering away to his dad. Anyway, present time came, and I opened it....and walaa! It was Photoshop Elements! I've been wanting this for a while, but I had told myself we could wait till we got a new camera or Christmas came along. I was and still am super excited!!! Cute husband of mine surprised me! I've only been playing with it for a few minutes, but I think I'm going to LOVE this! Just playing with some wedding photos... My mom and dad gave me some lovely sweaters and some jewelery. Thanks parents! I love you! And here are some pictures of last night of us being silly outside on the grass! :) A great big thank you to everyone who left me a birthday message via text, facebook, phone, and thoughts! I love you all, and thanks for your well wishes on my holiday! :)

Happy Birthday Janell! I'm sorry I didn't get to call you. I've been crazy-busy with teaching dance and working at the book store. I was thinking about you though. Does that count??? ;0)

I'm glad you had a great birthday. And how exciting to get photoshop! My computer is horribly slow so I haven't had much fun using mine because it always freezes up. I dream of the day when I can use it and play with it though! Maybe you can get really good at it and teach me how to use mine!
