Happy Birthday To MePosted Sunday, November 13, 2011, at 5:47 PM
Today (Sunday) I am 33 years old. My family "surprised" me this morning with breakfast in bed and showered me with gifts and handmade cards. Timothy (age 7), Rachel (age 8), and Abby (age 10) all made handmade cards that said things like, "Mom, I love you, Mom. Mom, you are the best Mom ever. I love Mom. Mom loves me." (I think they like to use the word "Mom" a lot because it's easy to spell).
Rachel also gave me a present--a beautiful tea set that I had bought at a yard sale last year. It was in a gift bag wrapped up in a piece of purple cloth, an apron, and an African costume we had made for school several years ago (since obviously we didn't have any tissue paper handy).
Sarah (age 12) gave me a necklace, although Joy (age 13) said she was actually the one who had made it. Either way, it was very pretty and I wore it to church this morning. They also gave me a gift bag with some body wash and a hair clip. Sarah said, "Don't tell her the story about the hair clip." I still don't know what is about.
Jay (age 14) gave me the most unique gift of them all. He translated "The Lord's Prayer" into Elvish and framed it. He's taught himself how to read it and has a whole dictionary of Elvish words that he's been printing out a little at a time from the Internet. I don't know if there is any practical use for knowing Elvish languages, but if there ever is a demand for an expert in the field, Jay might be the right person. I think it's cool, though, that he has shown the initiative to learn something on his own. I just wish I could give him a high school credit for it.
Erick gave me some chocolate and another hair clip, and I also received some gifts at church including fuzzy blue and green striped socks which I immediately put on. My girls are afraid that I will wear them to the Community Thanksgiving Service tonight with my dress clothes and are imploring me not to because they will "die of embarrassment." They said I'm too old to act crazy.
I've had a lovely birthday so far, and soon I will eat my pineapple upside down birthday cake that Jay made for me. I was going to make it myself but I decided I shouldn't have to make my own birthday cake.
