I celebrated my 34th year of life in July in fine fashion. If you've not experienced a Dollar Tree Birthday, well you are missing out on all the good things in life. I've requested this now for a couple years and every year proves to be better than the last. The only strict instruction I give John is that he takes pictures and remembers the things they say.
I was greeted at the door and ordered to put on my party hat.
Lillie always organizes the banner making.
It is fun to me because they can pick from the whole store what they think "I" would like best.
Here is the run down the gift selection (not in order by favorite):
Dom selected this angel bell. We pray the Angelus at noon and he thought this should replace our school bell. Perfect.
She went through terrible distress trying to figure out what to give me reported the male parent. Lillie knows my heart so she couldn't figure out whether she should satisfy my sweet tooth or buy me something elegant.
Lillie got me lilies.
Two packs of M&Ms and Vanilla Wafers.
Rose is a simpleton. She is precise and decisive and always proud of her selection.
Good ole Aunt Rose.
Zellie won the "Please let me take you to the Dollar Tree everyday" award. I guess she was unstoppable in the cute antics department. John said she was dropping lines left and right. I think she was shaking when I opened her gift due to proudness. She KNEW I had been wanting a watch so what better gift than a princess watch which I might add has a flip top (take that!!) and matching purple necklace and beads.
This was her first selection...ROPE which she thought was yarn. If only.
A party hat. She was just glad to be there.
Ole' Johnny he is a character. He had Clair's little note wrapped up and in her hand.
My dear Kristi took me to our favorite spot, The Oven. You are good to me.
I am spoiled. It was a wonderful day. Since I take them out to breakfast on their birthday, they each wanted to take me out individually on my birthday for breakfast. Oh my.
