A Happy Birthday

Yesterday was spent joyously enjoying my Birthday! Last year Benjamin was gone during my day and I am so glad  this year was different! It was a pretty crazy year last year!
 I awoke to beautiful roses and breakfast in bed which was a British breakfast. British as in baked beans with my eggs! When we were in England for our Honeymoon we were charmed to have baked beans with our breakfast! Happy memories!
And he gave me roses which are sitting beautifully in an antique vase. I was saddened to see that Bay (the cat) had decided to have a rose for breakfast! I thought he had learned his lesson, but I found him tonight again munching on my beautiful roses! He went to bed early tonight!
I had a lovely lovely day and couldn't believe it was over so quickly lol! We ended our day watching the new movie 'The Young Victoria'. It was so nice...... :)

~Benjamin took this of us, but we had a hard time getting it focused!
 This was the best one :)

My twin Marie and I, can you tell which one is which?
I stole this picture from my Mom's page :) she wrote the nicest birthday post for my sister and I. Really this day should be her day, since she spent the day laboring for me and my sister! I can't even imagine having two babies to deliver! I love you so much Mom! :)
Happy Birthday Marie, I miss you especially today!

SO sweet! What a nice day!!! LOVE breakfast in bed, even if it's just a hot tea and wildflowers, the "in bed" part is wonderful!!! :-D
I'm so glad you had a nice day. I know how birthday's make you ache for family, but your long-distance family loves you SO!!!
Your mom's post made me cry, so sincere and loving.
LOVE the baby photo op for your birthday too! He is precious!!!

I love the post sweetie. I won't tell which one is which, but I will enjoy seeing if others will know. Precious baby Winston is as cute as eve;r those toes in picture 2 are delightful. In picture 5 he reminds me of Zane. I like the picture of the 2 of you. So glad you had such a lovely day. Benjamin is a sweetie.
Love you

Belated Happy Birthday. It's so nice to get spoiled on your special day. Since I became a mum I've also thought that the emphasis of birthdays is on the wrong person!

Aww, happy birthday!

You went to England for your honeymoon? Wow, how romantic!

Your cat eats roses? Crazy cat! ;)

I have no idea which one you are in that picture of you and Marie. No idea at all. But I think it's an absolutely adorable picture!

Have a wonderful week!
