My birthday was actually on the 27th but the ring took a little longer than we thought to come in, so we celebrated it on the 5th. Since sapphire is my birth stone, I had one put in the ring except instead of the usual color blue, I wanted a pink one. Some of the girls said I was crazy for it. They were already jealous of me having a sapphire for a birth stone because of the color.
It was a really nice evening with the fancy dinner table set. Grandma and Grandpa came over and also our cousins from next door. Since there are a lot of kids when our two family's get together, they were privileged enough to sit outside eating on paper plates, while teenagers and adults got the nice decorated table:).
From my younger cousins I got a huge stack of cards and drawings they had worked on all day. The 5 year old boy was so sweet, he's been into drawing ever since he saw one I was working on. He gave me a lot of hugs and several drawings and asked me if they were good. I had a great evening and it was an awesome birthday even though it was a little late.
