Homemade Birthday Goodness

Ooo... I am *so* excited to show you the homemade-with-love gifts I received for my birthday! As I mentioned here, my birthday was yesterday. And it was quite a wonderful day!

A few of my children made the gifts they gave me. I am quite pleased with their crafty creations...

My two youngest children each painted a picture for me. One of my girls made a wee cross-stitch bird and another daughter crocheted a scarf that looks like a piano keyboard.

Here is a closer peek at the sweet little bird my girl made for me from a craft kit she purchased. So cute, yes?

And here is the keyboard scarf. I love it!

I have wanted a scarf like this ever since I began piano lessons several years ago, but I haven't gotten around to making one for myself. I am so happy my daughter made it for me, it was quite a surprise.

And now I am excitedly waiting for more snow on our homestead. Lots and lots of snow. Not only so I can wear my birthday scarf to keep warm, but because my dear hubby got me a pair of snowshoes for my birthday.

Snowshoes! Squee! I cannot wait to try them out!

My forty-ninth birthday was a most happy day full of celebration and family togetherness and homemade birthday goodness. I am indeed abundantly blessed, very grateful, and *thrilled* to be forty-nine!

Wishing you a lovely day, friends.
