Look what I received in the mail yesterday!! I was so excited to get a package in the mail from AUSTRALIA!! I was so happy!! I have been talking with Lee-Ann for a long time now and she saw something that I just needed to have...BUT oh it was the thought that counts..plus a great note to me...

What a sweet note...I love getting this great and wonderful things from my dear blogging friends!! WOW!! I feel so special!!
Isn't this just the cutest!! Flip Flop butter knives!! I did not care what was on the inside of this package...I was just so happy that Lee-Ann actually thought of me when she saw these!! Smile!!

Anyone that really knows me...knows that the more computers the happier I am..and a new one..WOW!! I am just hysterical happy!! The one on the left is one that I found yesterday at non other than BIG LOTS!! Yeap!! It was a great price...Hubby's computer is about to go to wherever old computers go..JUNK PILE!! He really needs a new one!! I am trying to be sweet and let him have it!! SMILE!! I am just really thrilled when a new computer is within my reach!!

FRIENDS!! Yes..this is only TWO Of all the friends that I CLAIM!! I so miss this couple Mr. and Mrs. Lazy Daisy!!

My sweet hubby...Oh incidentally these are in no order at all!! He would be at the TOP though!! Here he is right after going to a CUBS game in Chicago!! He was very happy here...

My family!! Oh how I LOVE my family!! Nothing any better in this world that MY FAMILY!!

This is our ONLY son!! Today is his birthday!! Happy Birthday my dear!! He is 44 years old today!! Just a little bit younger than myself!! Ha!! I know!! When he has a birthday i really feel my age...63...Hope he has a great and wonderful day!!

Our daughter Julie along with our 3 lovely granddaughters...Emily that is standing right next to Julie on the left has a birthday this Friday....she will be an ELDER 17!! My...17!! Aren't they a great group...and BOY DO I LOVE THEM ALL!!

Becky our third child and her family..Roger; Garrett and Madison!! What a family!! They are always here for me and I am so blessed to have them so close!! Blesses my heart!! I am going to have to go now and run over for an injection of B-12!! Back later to finish

My bible, my faith and my bible study is another one of my MOST favorite things in this ole' world!! If you have not dug into the meat of this great book, you are really not learning what you need to be learning!! God is still in control for sure!!

The butter knives are such a thoughtful gift from Lee-Ann. Guess I didn't know Big Lots had computers. That is cool. Loved all your favorites. Family is the BEST! Hope your MRI went well this afternoon.

Happy Birthday to your son. My son turns 46 in a few days. Doesn't seem like I should even be that old. Where does the time go?
