Birthday Highlights

After such a sweet and wonderful post from Chuck, I don't know if I can top it. I did want to share the highlights of the day in pictures.

The girls and I went to a local tea room for lunch. It was so special. We all got dressed up and did our hair. I even wore a dress (a bit of a change from work clothes and yard boots).

The view from the table. This place it too cute. I realized how much I like quaint things.

The day was full of flowers. First the flowers that Chuck gave me. He always gives me wild flowers...which I LOVE. And my dear in-laws sent a gorgeous bouquet of tulips, which are some of my absolute favorite flowers. Then the girls got into bringing flowers to the front door and ringing the doorbell and running off.

The flowers from Chuck look great in the custom built-in hall tree that we

made (I say we meaning my Dad and Chuck).

I love those little places. All seems to be well with the world in quaint little places like that. Especially when accompanied by your favorite girls. I'm sure that the tea was just a little bit sweeter that day.
Well done T & T for taking Mom out.

It looks like you had a fun time...what a cute little place. I love tea rooms-cafes. Glad you could do something fun with the girls that is girly!! I love the hall tree, is that what you called it? It is TOO cute...and Chuck and dad made it? WOW. love it.

The hall tree looks great. Finally something that makes sense in that weird area of the dining room. I also noticed the pantry door, I bet you love those too :)
A bunch of friends hosted a baby shower for me (Jonny) and it was so much fun, so girly!

Sweet pictures! Sweet girls! Sweet Birthday Gal! Glad it was sch a good day! I can picture the flowers - dried - hanging from a hook in the hall tree. Still praying someone soon will buy your house. I loved the "blogger" who said she was praying for the buyer. Great perspective! Much love

I love that hall tree - though if it were at my house it would be packed with jackets and coats, and nary a bit of its charm would show.

The tea room is adorable! I love quaint things, too.

Late Happy Birthday, Cris. Sorry for my absence. I've had a hand problem...carpal tunnel...having surgery on the 6th. However, wanted to let you know I was thinking of you, and praying for you daily.
