Can't freeze time...

and we can't turn the clocks of life backwards so we might as well move forward.
As of today my clock struck 39 and it's slowly beginning it's journey on to 40. 
But that's OK with me. Age is but a number.
I mean look at men.
How many do you know that are 50, 60, 70 and so forth yet still act at times like a child?
So you see, it's all in what WE make of it. :0)
                                                          No offense gentlemen!

The whole family gathered this past Sunday so we celebrated my birthday early. We had dinner and then birthday cake.
Afterwards the kids wanted to go outside and practice shooting their BB guns.
And look Grandmas even got a gun!
She's gonna kill me for this one!

Hubby and the kids really surprised me with this birthday gift.
It's the new Kindle Fire and I LOVE it!
In my spare time you will find me playing my favorite game on it.  (Text Twist 2)
My brother and his family gifted me with all kinds of things that I love. 
Country Living magazine, Girl Scout cookies, candy bars and those blue Dryer Balls that I've been wanting to try. They aren't pictured because they're currently being used in a load of laundry but so far...so good! 
My clothes are soft and NO static.

Other gifts include money and these t-shirts from my best friend and her husband.
Love them!

Later tonight we'll enjoy dinner out at my favorite restaurant and the best part of course is the fact that I don't have to cook or clean up the kitchen so I'm a happy camper.
Hope you all enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday, Jessica!!! It looks like you had a wonderful celebration! The big 5-0 is coming my way on the 29th, but I don't mind. Like you said, it's just a number. I told my husband the other day how strange it is that in our mind we don't seem to age...just our bodies. LOL! Glad you had a great time!! Where did you go out to eat?

Brenda said...
