Another year.....

 I wasn't going to post about my birthday this year.....but when you get an edible bouquet as pretty as this....you just have to share.  Jared's family sent it to me.  I love fruit anyway, but when you add chocolate, just too good to be true!  
 I thought these were chocolate covered marshmallows...but they were bananas.

Got some new shirts, lotions, chocolate truffles, gift card to Sizzler, quilt book, and cash!!  Jon and Bekkah gave Gary and me a new dishwasher for our birthdays.  Guess I can't complain about getting a year older with fun gifts like this (yes I consider a new dishwasher fun!!) 
 Now on the subject of wrinkles and aging.  One of our older black chickens is laying some funky looking eggs.  They are really thick shelled and WRINKLED.  We researched it on Google and it happens sometimes in older chickens when they are nearing the end of their laying.  Looks like a fake egg, huh?

happy happy birthday carrie!!!! that basket of fruit and chocolate made me hungry. looks yummy! hope you had a great birthday.

as for the egg... very strange! i thought it was a paper mache egg or some craft thing? who knew chickens laid wrinkled weird eggs. poor thing. ugh, even chickens have weird stuff that happens to them when they start getting old. i wonder if they get hot flashes too? haha.
