What a week!!

Our week started out rather slowly but by Wednesday it was top speed. Taylor was celebrating his 40th birthday this week and I did not want to let it go by without celebrating it in high style with lots of friends and family. I forgot my camera on Wednesday evening so I didn't get any photos of the party after church but it was really a blessing. He and a friend of his have their birthdays a day apart so we celebrated them together. Taylor, being a NCState fan, got red and black decorations, and his friend, being a Duke fan, got blue!! The NCState themed cake went first - need I say more???? JK - I do not join in the fracas of college allegiances in North Carolina - it's a dangerous prospect.

Anyway, we celebrated on Thursday, which was his actual birthday. His parents came for that, as well as my parents. Here are some photos of that celebration:

Taylor wearing my present. Kristinie the Great did not like them at all!!1

Opening the childrens' presents. We love Dollar Tree!! 

Taylor always gets a kick out of what the children pick out.

Our Maddie and her Daddy with the special Birthday cake.

The BIG birthday celebration was at my dad and mom's house. I call them Dorothy and the Great Oz. Here are some photos from all the fun we had.

Taylor's birthday was a great celebration at my parents' house. We had a terrific time. I thank the Lord for him and pray that God will bless us with many more birthdays to come.
