Help Me Celebrate Amber's Birthday!

It’s Amber’s birthday and I want to wish her a GREAT day, filled with fun and gifts.  Because I love gifts–and giveaways–and it’s no fun having your birthday fall smack dab in the middle of the holidays.  Seems to get lost in the shuffle!  (With 5 December birthdays in the family, I hear about it every year ~ LOL.)

So this year Amber has decided to do something special for her readers.  She’s put together a blog hop with over 25 authors and bloggers to celebrate her 24th birthday (We won’t mention how many years she’s turned 24 AGAIN. ;)) and this year, she’s not the only one receiving gifts today—you can, too!

Sylvia Hubbard  (5 Ebooks)

Kenra Daniels  (Safe Heart and Kassern, Paranormal romance)

      My best birthday memory…
      My children (3 of them) made me a birthday cake and decorated it, and my husband made me a dinner, it was great. The kids were 3,6,7 at the time. They actually did really good on the cake, and hubby made an awesome dinner for all of us to share :-)

    Best Birthday Memory
    I would have to say the year that I treated myself to get the Siliver (Then Cingular, Now AT&T – Cell phone cause of it having the iapple player, Mp3) and my boyfriend was at the mall across the street at the same time buying me an iPod… (that was back in Feb of 2006
    All I can say is great minds think alike


  7. Cindy Barton says:

    I was painting my dining room and my ex showed up. He knew it was my birthday and that I wouldn’t do anything so he took a half day off of work to take me fishing. He was my friend before we got together, we tried the dating thing, but he couldn’t handle everything I had to offer so we broke off and went back to being friends. Best birthday I had because he gave me something that no one else could, his time so I wouldn’t be alone.
    Thank you for letting me know about the rafflecopter.

    Happy Birthday Amber…

    For my best or worse if you view it that way birthday memory would have to be my 5th birthday… Well My birthday is Aug 15th so late in the summer but still before school starts so i never really had a big party… For my 5th birthday we had small party with friends and family… It was a cook out… I had a beautiful cake with candy airballons and a huge rainbow or it was until my mom thought instead of putting candles on it she would put a fire cracker on it so it “sparkled” well it happen to be one of those Screamer firecrakers.

    When she lit it scared me so bad i fell off the picnic table and peed yes i said peed my pants… So to this day if i have a cake and my mom is around no candles, fire crackers or anything.. Sad thing is she has it video taped so my childhood memory is forever on a VHS tape from the 1980’s. I tend to have icecream cakes for that reason also lol.

    1. Dianne Venetta says:

    Happy B-day Amber!!!! In honor of the day and fun hop I will leave a Christmas joke with each post/stop! It will spice things up a bit!!

    Why was Santa’s little helper depressed?
    He had low ELF esteem!


    I am a Halloween baby so my best memory was the year my mom let me have a costume bday party! She always tried to keep them separate, which made me want it even more!! It was the best birthday party ever! Lots of Halloween themed gifts which I loved!

    1. Dianne Venetta says:

    Happy Birthday to Amber!! Great bash!
    My best birthday memory has to be when my husband proposed to me. He threw a party with most of our friends and family and did it in front of everyone! His speech was so sweet and full of heart, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! (including his male friends)
    I couldn’t have asked for a better proposal! I never realized that I could laugh and cry hysterically at the same time. Lol.
    I wish you and your families a very Merry holiday season!

    My favorite birthday memory is being at Disney World with my family

  27. Would you believe my best birthday memory started out as a disaster. I was turning 13 & mom wanted me to have a real party, so she had me pass out invites at school, not thinking that having just moved from a public school to a private one, I hadn’t had time to form any close friendships. I invited the girls that hadn’t shunned me & received confirmations from 6 of them that they would be there. The day of my party, we had the house decorated, the food ready & not one of those 6 “friends” showed up. Just when things looked darkest, my 16 year old brother & a bunch of his friends showed up at the house, claiming they were all there for my party. So, instead of celebrating that milestone birthday with a bunch of loser girls, I was surrounded by teenage boys & had them all to myself.
