Party!

Chad threw a surprise birthday party for me on Friday night. It was so much fun! There were lots of my family members here (including my mom from Rapid City....a 5.5 hour drive) and many of my good friends too. It was a good night. Thanks to all of my friends and family for helping Chad with this and for making it a memorable 40th birthday!!!

Chad also surprised me with a new digital camera! It's a Canon Rebel XT and it is awesome! I have been wanting one for some time now. So, it may be awhile before you have any more pictures from me, I have to figure the thing out and download all the software for it yet. I also got some other very nice gifts and some um....interesting gifts too!

Thanks to all of you for the birthday wishes! It was a great day!

Happy Birthday! I've been blog surfing and came across yours and was struck by the dress your beautiful daughter is wearing. Take a look at the dress my 16 year old is wearing. http://scpepccee.blogspot.com/2008/04/aprils-almost-over.html
Take Care :)

Hey, Thanks for stopping by and I'm also adding you to my blog list. I was struck by your daughter's dress because I haven't seen another one come so close to looking like the one my daughter has. I'll be back often. Take Care :)
