It's My Birthday !!




Yes siree Bob, all day long today!


I always feel extra special on my birthday. Thank God for gifting me with another year, and I wish for many more to celebrate with my loved ones!

Yesterday, we went to The Cheesecake Factory. I love the food in that restaurant, and the great variety of cheesecakes to choose from!. I had to bring my little slice of heaven home with me, as I was so full, I couldn't eat it there... sorry no pictures.

Our tradition for every member of the family is, that, after eating at the restaurant of their choice, we go back to the house for ice cream cake.





That's right, this is how old I am today. What a beautiful number!. I made my own special crown to celebrate!

Some of us were really in a party mood!!




I wanted a picture with all of us, but Mr. Jason... was sound asleep!
But then, he woke up... and the party got started!!





Oh, everybody seems to be having such a great time!


I received wonderful gifts from family and friends. Actually, $$ from the family ( I want a white Brocade Home mirror, unfortunately they are not taking any orders at this time...sniff, sniff).


On the bright side, I received a beautiful tag from Scrappy Jessi, thank you, I love it!!





And from Sarah, a beautiful paper cupcake. So yummy lookin' !!





And to celebrate even more, if you leave me a happy birthday wish on this post, you'll be entered to win a birthday paper crown similar to mine, handmade by me, in the winner's choice of colors!. I'll announce the winner when I return from vacation on August 31st!!

P.S. You can click on the photos to enlarge them to view the crown's details!

Go ahead, make my day even more special!!!
Hugs to all,
Rosa

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROSA!!!!

It looks like your little man partied until he dropped, so cute!

You look just like a portrait I saw of a Hawaiian Princess in your glorious crown. She was wearing a beautiful headdress shaped much like yours! The candles do not do you justice, I seriously thought you were much much younger by your other blog photos! OK, so spill your youth secret!
