Birthday, Blizzards and Basketball

I am a little behind on blogging, but I wanted to post about a really cool birthday weekend I had on Dec 20th. Greg bought me a silver pendant and chain in the shape of Africa with a heart cut out in Ethiopia. It was so beautiful and I have wore it every day since he gave it to me.

Most people that know me know I love winter and I love snow. Well, our area of NC was treated with an unusual amount of snow on Dec 18-20. We had the best time playing in the snow! I made two big pots of soup, we had friends come over to sled and play in the snow and it was just so much fun! That is the second year in a row we have had enough snow to play in behind the house and I love it!!

Because of the snow, the church parking lot was very slick and so church was cancelled on my birthday ( the 20th), but the weather was not too bad and we were able to go out with some friends to O'charleys where I was sung to ( Embarassing!) and given carmel pie ( Yummy!)

We were also blessed with Wake Forest basketball tickets to watch them play after dinner. We had awesome seats and had so much fun. I love watching college football, but college basketball especially ACC is just the best! Even Esther got into the game dancing and cheering and sporting a free basketball net hat for the second half.

My birthday is not always something I like to remember( the age thing and all!) but this was was different and really really fun!

OMGOSH! I love your pendant. My hubby bought me one from the same artist. Mine is the one with handprints all over it.
