and the snow is calm and peaceful, nice relaxing sunday's, sweet blue sky and sunshine days during winter, Valentine's day messages/goodies/treasures, the excitement of the countdown to halloween season, super wednesday post office adventures, Kentucky Derby day excitement, pickle making adventure, potato harvesting adventure, visiting the beach and collecting seashells and rocks, holding a seashell close to my ear, and hearing the ocean, seeing the water when the sun is shining on it creating a sparkle, super wednesday post office adventures, the fresh crisp winter air during late winter where it feels like Spring is coming, new experiences, social interaction, sunny sunday mornings, indoors gardening, wonderful simple pleasures, great shopping experiences, making eye contact, enjoying shopping, walking outside on a sweet blue sky, and sunny day, and breathing in the fresh air, and thinking, "i am so very happy to be here! to have the chance to experience life", and smiling! :)
Enjoy the simple pleasures in life. They truely are, simply wonderful! :)

I could feel your wonderful excitement and happiness within! What a party you had! From sunrise to midnight! I\'m so happy you bowled with your dad :) You two made a great team bowling. I loved the high fives you gave your dad!! The new digital camera sounds awesome!! I know you\'ll get use to the new features soon. You and your family know how to paaaaaaaaarty!! I\'m so glad your pictures turned out alright, when you went to Yahoo. You\'re so very smart to think of that. Boy, I\'ll need to call you, so you can help me with my digital camera ;) You received such wonderful gifts! I know you\'ll have many dvd nights, plus with all the goody snacks! I think it\'s a good idea of your moms, to unwind tomorrow, and go to the post office on Friday. That way, you can relax and unwind. I love black olives on my pizza too! I\'m so happy for you Chris! You had a wonderful birthday with many of your friends calling, texting, emailing, etc... You deserved the very best!! I hope you\'ll be able to sleep tonight. Get plenty of rest. Know I love you bunches and bunches!! xoxoxox

Oh Chris that was a very special birthday celebration and added to the party, the wonderful family memory of the bowling contest. Special memories! You got so many wonderful gifts, how loved you must feel by family and friends. Four cakes, balloons, flowers, snacks, pizza. That was a wonderful party. I love your new camera! I bet you have\'nt totally come down to earth yet, and still floating up on the Happy Birthday clouds. So special, you and your dad getting to bowl together. Well, try to relax and rest some tonight. Such a wonderful celebration. Love you mucher and mucher!

Your flowers are such a lovely color too, I sure hope my friend MR COOL SUNFLOWER enjoyed his iced coffee and cake. I smiled when I saw him! I hope you enjoy ALL of your NEW dvd\'s and SNACKS this evening. Sunny Hugs-Stephanie

My goodness - look at all of the love that is pouring out at you Chris. What a lovely birthday you had - but just one question. Do you think you had enough cake? My gosh - I\'ve never seen one man get so many cakes! You have made many friends - because you are such a good friend. I\'m so happy that you know you are loved so much by so many. You can now snuggle down, get your snacks, one of your new DVD\'s and have a ball. Again - Happy, Happy Birthday to you my very dear friend. Millie says Happy Birthday too :)

Hi my sweet Chris! I\'m so happy you had the best birthday ever, you deserve it! Enjoy all of your wonderful gifts! Thanks for sharing all of the pictures and the special thankyous....... I know your day was everything you dreamed of and more! Love you bunches and bunches!!!

Awww Chris i couldnt be happier for you. It warms my heart SO that you had such a great birthday!! I just LOVE how you got spoiled SO! Cuz you really did & you truly deserve it. I sent your birthday package on it suly has to come tomorrow.
Love you bunches & bunches my wonderful gardening & nature loving friend =o)

Dearest Chris... See how much better it is when you KNOW you have all week to take pictures and post them??? I LOVE having a BIRTHDAY WEEK especially because I live so far away from my family and friends... I think it takes the pressure off of them as well!

You totally SCORED!!! which you totally deserve Chris! You are a good friend! You send cards without real solid reasons that just brighten our days! Now I know you are also there by phone and you understand my cell phone is unreliable at best living on the edge of the Verizon network as I do... You are always here on weekends when many are too buzy to spend much time. I especially love Baking Friday as that is a journal I KNOW I get to read late in the evening when most others are too involved with family/kidz/other obligations. YOU my friend seem more available to others like me... I have a very solitary existence here in Goddess Country... You are HERE for me when nobody else is available because their lives are too full with kidz and husbands and other folks... YOU always have time for me!

Love to you and Mom and Dad and Kayla!!! My Mom was THRILLED that Kayla loves the butterflies!! That meant so much to her tonight! We had a long talk, and I\'m looking forward to sending her pictures of Baking Friday! I also pull the one picture today you posted which I will send through my sistour... I wish I could talk my Mom into getting a computer running at her house! She could easily use Charlie\'s computer! Time... I hope soon there has been enough TIME... xoxoxo Cj

once again chris, i am so glad you had such a great birthday. enjoy allof your new goodies and treasures. you deserve them!!!

So glad that you enjoyed your day. It sounds so exciting. I love your new camera and am jealous!!! I need a new camera badly.

Can\'t wait to start gardening. We are going to be doing some digging this weekend if the weatherman has the right forecast!! I can\'t wait to get into the dirt!!! It is time to be planting some lettuce and onions for an early spring crop. I am so excited.

Got to run. Have a great day my friend. Hugs and more hugs -- John and Debbie
