My 28th Birthday

Today is my birthday. I am 28 years old.


I had to get up really early because Jackson has an appointment to get his haircut.


This is my first birthday in our new house.


We are here at The Pet Palace. How do you like my new LuLaRoe dress? It is a Carly.


This makes me a little bit nervous but Darian will take good care of him.


"Bye Jackson, I'll be back soon."


This was a surprise. Happy Birthday Becky Kent. Yep we share the same birthday. She was my softball coach for so many years. I love her.


And this is her daughter Melissa. She went to school with me for all my grades. She is so nice. Look at this. We bought a new microwave. We get all of our appliances at Snow Brothers.


So my mom said, "Sarah You can pick anywhere you want to have your birthday lunch." So I picked Sonic. I love that drive in. OMG, I got a Ninja Turtle with my chicken strips. I will have to give it to Jackson to play with.


"Oh Jackson you look so handsome."


Here we are at the quilt shop. Jackson hasn't been here for a while. I think he is confused. How do you like his haircut? His bandana matches our shop.


This is Jay Fernandez. He is the new Board President for the Heights Hillcrest Chamber of Commerce. He wanted to come meet me because I am a member.


Surprise! It's time for my birthday dinner and look who is here! It's my little brother Matty!!!


He is so happy to see Jackson. How do you like my Barney birthday banner. It is from my 4th birthday. Matt wasn't even born yet.


Time for dinner. I wanted pizza and pringles. Yum yum!


We are sitting around our new counter even though we don't have enough chairs yet. 


I am so happy. It is good to be 28.


Ok here we go. Time to blow out my candles. My dad is singing to me.


One more try.


What the heck? They won't go out.


One more time.


Ok this time Matt is going to help me. Whew. That worked.


Oh my goodness. Grandpa be careful!


This is a big present. I wonder what it is?


Oh this is a nice card. It says...On your Birthday...


Grandpa read it to me please. 
There you go again Granddaughter-
off on a whole new year
of living life to its fullest
and sharing your smile
and following your heart
and reaching for stars
and giving your all
and making a difference
in the lives of those
who know you
and love you so much
and making them feel
not only young at heart
but so very proud 
of the special person
you are. 

Have a very Happy Birthday
Love you, Grandpa


Oh that was perfect. Jackson loved it too. 


Oh this is so cute. Jackson is trying to pull the paper off for me. He loves to play with paper. He eats it too. That is not so good.


Oh I am so happy!!!


It is Melody Ellison. She is the newest Beforever girl. I can't wait to read the book with my mom. Melody represents 1964. Thank you Grandpa.


I had a good day. Stay tuned for next week. My mom is going to take me on my birthday trip. We are going to Cincinnati to visit Charlie! and then we are going to King's Island. I can't wait.
