One of our sisters, who is having a birthday tomorrow, has been overwhelmed by gifts which have flooded in from all over the world. This Cutie let slip that the only Christmas gift she had was from her Cute Secret Santa and as a result, many people wanted to make sure that this coming birthday was a really special one for her, to show her how much she is loved.

She doesn't want to act like she should be receiving special treatment like this, and certainly doesn't want anybody to think she is boasting about the gifts, but she is actually thrilled to pieces. She loves all of the gifts and will cherish the thoughts of the lovely Secret Sisters that cared enough to share their craft with her for ever.
Perhaps now I have explained the situation, she could be persuaded to tell us about the beautiful things she has received, when she has opened them all. (She is being good and waiting until tomorrow - her actual birthday!)

Thank you each - you are all so special - what can one say - when you have gone out of your way to make a birthday so speical - when it comes - I will open my gifts - more than likely have a leaky eye or two and then take some pictures and post them - do be patient with me - as I want to take it all in - on my birthday - I don't believe I have had this much attention for a birthday in my life. However, I have had a special birthday celebration with the CUTE family for many years - the 1st one I celebrated with the CUTE family is part of the reason that we now have a birthday posting - if I am not right about this - I am sorry - but when there was so much fuzz made the 1st time - when I posted it was my birthday - it was so much fun - recieiving birthday wishes - that I do believe from that - Raelene decided to make a list of birthday's - some time right after that. So thank you each for being so special to be part of this birthday celebration, too.
