Well it has to happen at least once a year.

My birthday.

I'm hoping for one of these sweet rides with a big shiny bow.

Or maybe some of these...

But I think I have everything I need.

Bebe and I went to the store and picked out bakery fresh cupcakes as a special treat.

It was so much fun watching her eat one. When she laughs, I laugh.
She is my special gift and spending time with her makes it all complete!

Linking with PINK SATURDAY!

Won't you help me celebrate?

Oh, how I love that hat on her!! It reminds me of a very special picture that I took with my son when he was young. I was wearing a hat that looked similar to that one, and I still cherish that picture. Happy Birthday, and I'm glad you got to spend it with the ones you love.

Happy Birthday, Jillian! Hope you're having a blessed day! Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to this week with all the celebrations - and my visit to Newport. Wait til you see my blog this coming week on the antique shops I've been in - and a treasure find! Newport has the mansions - so the antiques available up here are really something. Where to put such things! Love ya!

Happy (belated?) birthday! I bet Bebe had an icing face afterwards! Kids are so funny at birthday times! (K cried for years when "Happy Birthday" and interrupted the song when it was sung! Funny how you can forget these little things!)

Hi Jillian Sweetie...
Happy Birthday to you. I love birthdays and a great cupcake is just the perfect touch for a birthday celebration.

Oh what an expression on her precious face. Does she scream of LOVE or what? I simply adore her little wrinkled nose. That hat is just her. I would say you are going to have a Hat Kind of Gal. This photo is positively priceless. I love it.

Hope you get flowers, to go with the cupcakes and how about dinner out? Yum. Keep me posted. May all your dreams come true.
