Birthday gifts

I had a fabulous birthday.  I am strange because no matter how old I get I love my birthday.  The last several years I have been able to spend my birthday with all my family and we always have so much fun.  I mean does it get better than food, homemade ice cream, fireworks and family.  I also still make a birthday wish list every year.  Jerry used to think it was very childish and maybe still does but he has come to accept it.  I like to wish big knowing I won't get everything on my list.  This year I got two giftcards which I absolutely love.  I mean who doesn't love to shop on someone else's money!  I also got these

I am super excited.  These sharpies have been on my list for two years now.  This cookbook is my new obsession- crockpot cooking.  I have become hooked on this blog and she has two cookbooks out that I wanted.  I don't know what it is, but I still really like my good old fashioned cookbooks.  I will find recipes online but I much prefer to have a cookbook or recipe card instead.  And finally I got this

I have been dreaming of a sewing basket for several months.  I was still using the plastic pencil box that my Grandma Sims put together for me when I was leaving for college complete with needles, thread and scissors.  I have had it for 15 years now and have added to it but it was time for something bigger.  Over the past year I have started sewing again and really enjoy it.  Now with this colorful sewing basket I will enjoy it even more!
