So do you wanna know what I got for my birthday??

My parents took me out for lunch, with my sister and a couple of buddies. That was a lovely treat and the kids then cooked dinner. I still did the dishes but hey you cant have it all. I have some pics of my gifts but I forgot to put everything in! LOL What is not pictured is my super red iPod shuffle, and my CD by Duffy. Here is a pic of the Froggy bookmark, Cake Stand, Pandora Bracelet and box of chocs. The cake stand is so cool, it has different chocolate desserts pictured around the edge.
Here is a close up of the Pandora. I received the bracelet and 3 charms for Mothers Day. ( From the right they are a bible, a cross and a cup & Saucer.) The new charms are (from the left) a little frog, my birth stone charm and a tiny teapot (it is super special as it has gold on it).
Here is a close up of the amazing bookmark my sister gave me. It is metal with a tiny glass frog on the end. I think I am too scared to use it, I would be sad if he broke.
And then from my dear friend Nic, an amazing apron. Very retro in style, made from one of my favourite Thimbleberries fabrics. She has done an awesome job with all the bias binding. Thanks again, I really do love it.

Today is my DH's 40th birthday, and he is stuck in Q'land working!! But we will cook him a lovely birthday dinner when he gets home tomorrow. Then my baby turns 11 on Monday, yes 3 of us in 4 days. But it doesnt end there. Today is also my sisters husbands birthday, (his 40th also) and on Sunday is another brother in laws birthday AND his son, (my nephew) on the same day. So that is 6 members of our immediate family celebrating in a 4 day period!! FUN!
