Someone had a birthday

I was surprised to get these....from my older daughter.  Believe me this photo does not do them justice.  The roses are more a peachy-pink color.  All the colors have a fall feel to them...they came Friday which was one reason they were such a surprise. (By the way,  both photos need to be clicked on to enjoy more.)  Anyway, they are gorgeous. 
 Then Sarah had us over Saturday and cooked dinner for us...she fixed this yummy dish called Melt in Your Mouth Chicken...and it did.  I am pretty sure this is the recipe she used...only she used chicken thighs.  Plus she got me a puzzle...and a big sack of sunflower seeds.

And I got to see Tootie.  You would never guess she had been sick if you could see the sparkle in her eyes.  She is still coughing but it does not slow her down.  Sarah said she had to wear this pink dress for us.  As usual, it is fun to wake up over there to her smiling face looking into mine.  I will wake up and there she is right at my side, sometimes her elbows resting on the bed, and she will say 'Mamaw, its time to get up now!'
