Thank You All!!!

You just made my day! :)

As you already know, my sweet husband contacted all the wonderful blogosphere friends of The Bird's Nest (with some help;), and today I received one of the most awesome gifts.

Inside this present was a box containing 19 cards from all of you! 19! I got all choked up.


I was so not expecting this. Perplexed as I was opening the present, I was thinking it was maybe a shirt or something.
Then I began reading your kind words and birthday wishes. With the help of Aidan.
I feel so touched & loved! Thank you for doing this and celebrating my birthday with me. 29 is off to a good start!

Love you guys!!

YAY!!!!!! I'm SO glad that Pat was able to surprise you! Woohoo! I was literally jumpy all day because I knew you'd enjoy them and was just hoping that you didn't somehow find out beforehand! :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! Now, let's meet up soon, k? Perhaps during your 29th year sometime...haha!

Oh, and too funny that you thought it might be a shirt or something! That would be kinda funny, but I think what Pat organized (GO PAT!) was better! :)

Ooh--One more thing--How did you darken the edges of the pic like that? I am using Gimp to try to do that to Nancy's bridal portrait, but no luck!! :o)

glad you liked your surprise! I haven't been calling you too much cause I'm horrible about not letting things slip and I didn't want to blow it! Hope you've had a great birthday. We have to get together again soon!!

:) I am so glad it went well! I have been showing my husband your husband's emails....you know...dropping hints about how AWESOME this idea was.

Pat worked really hard on this. :)

Happy Birthday!

Sharon, I hope you had a wonderful birthday! I was wondering when you'd get to open all the cards!

Jenny, it is an option in iPhoto, I'm not sure how to do it in GIMP though I'm sure it's possible.

Glad you got them! I'm sorry I didn't participate! Your sweet husband sent me the email, but in all my cruise furry, never got the card made and sent! :( Hope you had a great bday!
