Tonight I was surprised and celebrated by my St. Louis family! It's not quite my birthday yet, but I'll take the fun I had tonight! Sandy and Kirk cleaned up the dinner dishes and made me "sit". Then Bob poured wine all around....my favorite...a chardonnay ...then Sandy presented a beautiful turtle cheesecake with candles on it. Cara happened to call when the candles were being lit, so she joined in on the Happy Birthday chorus! (Sorry I didn't call you back tonight sweetie...I'll call tomorrow). Sandy is a very wise woman, with an amazing memory and knew that I'm not too fond of cake...but that I love cheesecake! She also remembered that I had blogged about walking on the beach as one of my favorite things to do....and bought me a really neat stamp of a beach scene. I can't wait to try it out when I get home! (I'll post pictures of something I make with it).
Thanks Sandy, Bob, Dad and Kirk for a wonderful evening! It's been a great week here in St. Louis with you all.
