For my 24th birthday we rented a rustic cabin in the mountains... So fun!

I don't really do much for birthdays. But my Honeyman is turning 40 in February and we have already booked our trip to Mexico!! 10 days on the beach when we are supposed to have another COLD winter!!!

My favorite birthday was when my friends at school gave me a surprise party during lunch time.

WOW, time went fast! I think my favorite birthday memory was my 7th. I went to Disney world with my grandparents and it was so special.

Sandra said...

This year we are planning a car tour to the four corners area. I have never been there so should be interesting.

Happy Birthday Sonja! They grow up so fast that it seems like just yesterday when they arrived. My favorite birthday is every one that I make it to. Have one coming up on the 23rd and if I'm blessed enough to be here it will be my favorite.

Happy birthday to Sonja! It is amazing how quickly our children grow! My favorite birthday was at a craft show, when my hubbie got a cake and everyone took a moment to come to our booth and sing happy birthday.

Julianne said...

Happy Birthday Sonja!
I love my birthday every single year so I cant pick just one! The cakes and all the other treats and just everyone sending their wishes makes every year fun!

Happy Birthday Sonja! My favorite birthday was when I turned 21 and really felt like an adult.

nan_c said...

One of my favorite birthday's was a couple years ago we were at Stitches West and when I met up with my friends for lunch there was a cake with candles and they started singing and then EVERYONE joined in. It was really fun...and embarrassing! :)

Kathy S. said...

Happy birthday, Sonja! My favorite birthday was when I turned 16. My friends surprised me with a party. They gave me a special necklace (a heart with my name on it that holds charms). I still have it and cherish it. I remember how surprised I was and how thoughtful they were.

For my 21st birthday, my mom and her sister took me to the horse races near where I grew up in Pennsylvania. That evening they were having a drawing for a trip to California and my mom WON! It was exciting, but she was freaking out a little because she had never flown and thought it sounded scary. I told her I'd push her onto the plane if I had to! She and my dad went and had a great time, although I'm not sure she liked the flying part. She died several years later, having never taken another flight. I'll always remember that birthday! Happy Birthday to your sweet little miss!

For my 40th birthday, the man I was dating then got us tickets to see 42nd Street, orchestra, 3 rows away from the stage, and dinner and a night in an elegant hotel uptown. We took a "bike taxi" from the theater to the hotel. It was memorable, and the show was awesome. I follow with Google.

Karen Thurn said...

Happy, happy Birthday!! My favorite birthday was when my first son turned one and my dad turned 50 the day before. They shared a cake. Little did I know that I'd go on to have 4 sons and one daughter and my dad is now 84 with 17 grandchildren and 5 greatchildren and 2 more greats on the way. I tried to find if I'm a no reply but Bloglovin didn't match your directions above. so I've included my email just in case I should win. I can hope. kthurn@bektel.com

My birthday is in July, so when I was younger, my family and I were often on vacation. I remember one year going to Virginia Beach. The car broke down so we ended up having an impromptu picnic breakfast by the side of the road. That evening we went out to dinner and the power went out. Certainly an eventful birthday!

Sherry said...

I am a follower of your blog and my favorite Birthday memory is the fun party my mom had for me on my 16th and the beautiful charm bracelet she gave me as a gift. Happy birthday to your daughter!

I would have to say my birthday this year (46) has been the best one I remember the best! My Sister took me to the Cheesecake Factory and then afterwards she took me to a quilt shop and bought me $100 worth of fabric and supplies! Best day I remember in a long time! Your daughter is beautiful, granddaughter just turned 5! I love listening to the way they talk and think! Thanks for the giveaway!

SewMisadventurous said...

I think my favourite birthday was my Niece's 1st.We had to wait 10 years between the Wedding & the Birth, so she has always been Super-Special and Super-Spoiled(Guilty party here!)but watching her try to copy how to blow out the candle(whilst we ALL huffed and puffed like loonies) as she just sort of hovered over them, breathing, was almost too funny to describe.She thought if she blew she'd hurt them,so blew kisses. NEVER did a cake take so long to cut, and it still makes me smile to think of it.

I follow by email. My favorite birthday was my grandson's 5th - we rented a water slide and had a perfect day with 30 kids having fun! No injuries, no fights, and the well didn't run dry.

I have to say last year in Sept was my husbands 66th birthday. We had a pool party and a cake with all the candles. It will be very special in my heart because in Dec he passed away.

My favorite birthday was my granddaughter's 1st birthday. We never though we would have a grandchild. It took 8 long years for my daughter and her husband to surprisingly get pregnant. We worried about cleft pallet but God is good and she is beautiful and such a blessing to us.

Last year I had some new friends over for dinner, and that was when I started being really close friends with them, so that was pretty special. Happy Birthday to Sonja!

Quilting Momma said...

Besides the kids' birthdays, my fav was a couple of years ago when my honey bought me a BabyLock Symphony. I cried when I opened the card and he had a photo of one. We went straight to the shop to pick it up!

Suze said...

In March we just celebrated the 3rd birthday of my youngest grandson. He was born unexpectedly premature. We knew his older brother was going to be premature. My daughter is a teacher. She taught on Friday, had him on Saturday, the next week was spring break and she went back to teaching the next Monday. So, she did not miss a day of school to have him. She taught until he came home from the hospital. He has no signs of being a preemie. We are very blessed to have a healthy 3 year old and count those blessings every day. Thanks for the giveaway. Congrats on the inspector becoming a toddler.

They grow up so fast. My youngest leaves the nest for college tomorrow. Happy birthday Sonya! On several of my daughter's birthdays we had surprise butterflies hatch and she got to hold them. This year coming out of church she held out her hand to a butterfly and again got to hold it. We call it the birthdy magic.

My favorite birthday was my 13th. We had some college girls who were summer missionaries helping our church. They called our house and said for me to run and bring them a mop. I tore off and when I got there, it was a surprise party for ME! They gave me art supplies. It was very special.

My most memorable birthday was probably the birthday after I was married; we got lots of gift certificates for our wedding, and used two of them to see Amadeus at the theatre, and eat at a very, very nice Japanese resturant. Very fun! sarah@forrussia.org

Michele said...

I'm sure it was a terrific day. Celebrating each of my kids' 1st birthdays with us were the most special in my life and the ones that I'll always remember.

Cheryl said...

Birthdays...so many fond memories, but my eldest daughter's first birthday is probably my favorite. I follow along thru GFC as simply blogs.

Sewgirl said...

Happy Birthday to your sweet little one. I have many happy birthday memories. When I was 6 my mom arranged a scavenger hunt for my friends and I. plus I had one of those cakes with the doll in the middle, making it look like her skirt was the dress. Very fun birthday!

PK Sews said...

What a heartwarming post! Happy birthday Sonja! My favorite birthday was the day my granddaughter was born, four years ago. She is my first (and so far only) grandchild, and I never imagined I could love a child as much as my own children, but she is the light of my life. I love to sew for her too, so thanks for the chance to win this delightful fabric!

My favorite birthday is the one my daughter just had. She turned 3 and my siblings and their families flew from Texas to California and my cousins and their families all came to the party too. It was awesome! :). This fabric would be great to make a girly quilt or a few dresses for a crazy little 3 year old. :)
