A little late but I wanted to share a few surprises....

few weeks ago...
I survived another one....
...a birthday that is.
I had a perfect birthday...
DH had a 4 day weekend and we headed to Canada.
I got hugs and spent time with my grandones...
...on Saturday we got to see our DGS skate and play a little hockey for the first time... to see my DGD practice her dances for upcoming competitions...
 we had a delicious prime rib dinner complete with yorkshire pudding
mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots
prepared by my DSon2...he even made the gravy from scratch.
 Dson1 and DDIL joined us, we had a lovely visit and a delicious dinner.

On Sunday, my DSister and DBIL hosted a delicious Easter dinner...
got to spend some time with my DMom and DBrother
my Dniece and her Dhusband...

It was a beautiful Birthday weekend!!

DH always gets me roses for my birthday but this year
he told me he chose to forgo the roses because we would be away for the 4 days.  
Good idea...

Well to my surprise...
a week later he stopped to buy these beauties on his way home from the office...
...totally not expecting roses!!

...he is the sweetest!!!


and then a surprise on Wednesday at our quilting get-to-gether
...from Mama Spark
 a Tasha Horsley custom print...

and it goes with this print Mama Spark gave to me at Christmas

Thank you Pam
....and now I have to get them framed.
