First we had to wait to be seated...apparently, 1pm is still a little early to bring a party of 22 people into a popular restaurant, even with a reservation!
K (below, on the right), gave me a card that said "Happy Birthday. Your name means rich. But I think that it means rich with God's Glory." That was so sweet~ thank you, K! =)
Mrs. Bee, Hannah and I~

I made some special ones that were Gingerbread muffins, for us special folks~
One last thing..Allison & Sara gave me "Lucy" she is a Plumeria~ some day she'll have pretty flowers! You can read about them here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~My comment on FB~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I feel SO loved~ thank you all for making my birthday special! 1 phone call, 2 loving parents, 2 text messages, 7 cards, about 10 e-mails, 27 party attendees (if you add all 3 parties), about 60 FB notes, too many hugs and gifts (mostly hugs!!!) to count(!), and ever so many friends & acquaintance to celebrate with me, and cheer me on to do bigger and better things~ Indeed, I am a very blessed young lady! =) Sniff! =) (Thank you Father, for blessing me so!)
