I turned 21 today! plus 22! (hee hee!)

Happy Birthday to me!!! I had a great birthday!!! My wonderful hubby took me to dinner yesterday at Pappadeaux's, which is my second favorite restaurant (Olive Garden is #1) and where I have my must-have dessert of creme brulee every year! After dinner (stuffed shrimp was awesome!), we went to see Tyler Perry's new movie, "The Family that Preys", which was really good. This morning I was served breakfast by my hubby and kiddos, after a wonderful introduction by my hubby as I was coming down the hallway! Too cute! I got lots of great cards (homemade are the best!) and gifts, which mostly consisted of used toys! LOL! I got a brand new tambourine, which was a thrill since my old one has lost most of it's jingles! I enjoyed playing it at church today! At church, my birthday was mentioned during the announcements and I got clapping and cheering and some friends that sang to me also, after church was out. After church, between services, we went to the Cotton Patch Cafe, where the crew sang Happy Birthday to me backwards! They were standing with their backs to me, while singing!!! Too funny! Then we went back to church for our Sunday evening IMPACT service, and then to Baskin-Robbins for ice cream! I had a great day and I thank God for my sweet hubby and precious kiddos!!!

Thanking God!

We have so much to be thankful for! I thank God for my family and my life and all the wonderful blessings He's bestowed upon us daily! I'm very thankful that we only got rain and a little wind on last weekend, with no property damage. I praise Him for my family members in Houston who were only midly affected by the storm. I thank Him for the rainbow after the storm! God is an awesome God and truly amazing!!!
