Sunday July 31st, my birthday day, was so relaxing... as tradition, I got breakfast in bed... yummy crepe's.
Later that day Dave and I went shopping at Beall's and the pet store. No luck at Beall's, but Dave did get a new bone.
After a yummy dinner of grilled pork chops, rice pilaf with cherry tomatoes, and a salad, my family had a game set up for me in order to earn my presents :)
Have you ever seen the TV game "Chain Reaction"? The gist of the game is to figure out a chain of words that fit together. An example would be... "Bike-Seat-Belt-Buckle-Up"
The catch is, you only get one letter at a time and you must guess the word after each given letter. As soon as you figure out "Bike", you get an "S" under the word "Bike". You only have a few seconds to guess what the "S" could be. If you guess incorrectly the other team has a chance. So then one more letter would appear... it would look like this...
So for my birthday, I was up against Collin and Kaitlyn. We played about 15 rounds, but I finally won all my gifts. But they sure put up a good fight :)
Dave was a great helper...
I love, love, love, the color scheme; white, black and gray with black filigree. So mom took that idea and ran with it!
I'm so blessed to have such an awesome family!
