Yesterday we celebrated my birthday at my parents house. This is a picture of my beautiful niece, Paige. This was my favorite picture of the day so I wanted to share.
My mom fixed all of my favorite foods for lunch. Mom does this for all of us on our special day. I have the best mom in the world. We get on each others nerves at times because we are two different people with sometimes very different opinions. The older we get, the worse this seems to get. :-) I guess that is just life and probably that we are too much alike. But.... I love my mom and there is never a doubt that my mom loves me. I am pretty hard to love at times but she loves me anyway. I guess that is what good mothers do!
My family gave me some funny birthday cards and I got some money from my grandmother and from my parents. I can't wait to spend it on some Papertrey goodies... yum!! My siblings and I usually don't exchange gifts for birthdays, just cards, but my sister-in-law made me the sweetest scrapbook for my birthday. It is a poem, with pictures of me and my nephew, Alex, telling the story of how I became known as Boo Boo. Alex started calling me Boo Boo when he was around 2 years old because he couldn't say Kelley. Alex just came out with Boo Boo one day... we all laughed and I have been Boo Boo ever since. To this day if he slips up and calls me by my actual name, I am like "excuse me... i don' t think so... it is boo boo". My oldest nephew, Dustin, is married with a child older than mine and he still calls me Boo Boo. I love it! I will forever treasure that scrapbook.
