For HER birthday this year, Angie treated all her nieces and nephews (more like grandkids) and me and her dear friend Maryanne (who is a DELIGHT and oh so fun to be around!) to a fun lunch at THE RAINFOREST CAFE! The kids LOVED it. The atmosphere was exciting, full of vibrant colors, waterfalls, jungle music and noises, "rainstorms" and animated animals that "came to life" every so often. The food was a little slow coming out, but of course Aunt Angie is ALWAYS prepared and gave each kid a gift bag with some fun little trinkets to keep them busy! After lunch (which all the kids DEVOURED! YAY!) we got to sing to this lovely lady and celebrate with a chocolate lava cake. YUM! Brax was given an extra special treat and got his very own dirt sundae for dessert. I tell ya, that made his day! It came in a cute little pot with gummy worms hanging over the side. He was one happy camper! THEN, as if they hadn't been spoiled enough, Maryanne and Angie gave each kid $10 whole dollars all to themselves to go pick a gift out in the gift store. It was like Christmas! They all found their special toys and left with full tummies, full bags, and full hearts. It was a day they will always remember!
Thanks Aunt Angie!
WE LOVE YOU!
I didn't get a chance to give you a present, and I feel so bad about that, but I hope this expresses what's in my heart and how much you mean to us!
There is a very special woman in our lives,
Who brings light and happiness wherever she goes.
She is kind, understanding, loving, and selfless,
And is always there to ease our woes.
Her ear is always there to listen,
Her shoulder is always there for tears,
And no matter what the future brings,
We will always love her, for many, many years.
The Lord says he has given us Angels,
Well I for sure know thats true,
Because when I think of the Angels in my life,
Angie, I can't help but think of you!
Life isn't always easy,
And its not always what we hope,
But with your help we've learned to adapt,
With your help, we've learned to cope.
You are a wonderful Aunt, "Grandma" and also a dear friend,
And I am so grateful you will be in our lives
to the very, very end.
So on this very special occasion, we just want to say,
That you deserve the best, we love you,
and we hope you have a HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Happy 60th Aunt Angie!
