This weekend was a full one and if I could paint this weekend it would look like this.. 
lots of smiling faces
 bright color
 family
 friends
putt putt golf
and birthday cake!


So here are 10 things that made me happy this weekend.


1.  Sam and his good friend, Ford, played putt putt and had a blast.  He even said it was more fun than his birthday.. hmmm.  I asked him " Sam, if you could pick Chuck E Cheese or putt putt golf, what would you pick??" He said, "Oh, that is a hard question, I can't pick." But then later, he did say, putt putt! Yes!! (deep inside I was saying, "oh, say no to the chuck e cheese".

4.  Hanging the sign for my big bro's 40th birthday party. We hung a sign over the driveway of my parent's house...just like our friends, the Harrises, did for my dad... years ago. ( I think it was in 1979 or close to that date!) Wow, yearsss ago!

10. The drive home to Birmingham.... so beautiful.  Fluffy clouds in the sky and clouds in the valleys as well.
A perfect evening to drive home....right after a nice rain... fields all fresh and green. 
A weekend of happiness. And my heart is full.
