"I love my family (AND FRIENDS). I really do." part 2...

So, I'm thinking 28 may be a pretty good year for me. I've only been 28 for a day, but I must say, it was one of the best birthdays I've had to date. First of all, my students were so sweet. I think they were more excited about it being my birthday than I was! At school, I was given not 1, not 2, not even 3, but 4 cakes from a couple of parents and fellow teacher friends. Of course I had to "taste" them all, and wow!... I definitely got my sweet fix, and should easily make it until Easter when Lent is over! My students (including 4 of my students' wonderful moms!) also threw me a surprise party at the end of the day. Here I am blowing out the candles on THAT cake! I also received some beautiful tulips from my dear friend Meredith. Isn't she thoughtful? After school, I went home to find this: Balloons on my mailbox, a new adorable Easter wreath, fresh flowers, a bowl of starburst jelly beans, a cute Easter centerpiece, and one of the best gifts EVER: A COMPLETELY STOCKED REFRIGERATOR AND PANTRY! That's right! Mom, Nana, Kristen, and Henry went grocery shopping for me! The picture that I posted really doesn't show it all, it's just a glimpse to give you some idea. Isn't that awesome?

Finally, my wonderful teacher friends treated me to yet another trip to Tipico! I'm so glad Kristen has the week off so she was able to join us!Thanks to all who made it the BEST day for me!

I'm impressed! Your family gives such thoughtful gifts--from the wreath on the door to the stocked cabinets. I'll have to remember those ideas for the upcoming birthdays in my family. I'm glad you had a great day--I mean week! :)
