When I got home from work he had a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies waiting for me. They were really good!! He also surprised me with a new computer!! He bought me an IMac!! I am in LOVE!! I have been wanting one for a long time, I was shocked he bought it for me!! He really spoiled me!!
My dad also sent me flowers...he has every year since I was a little girl. He is the best!! So I had a lot of nice surprises!! It was the best birthday ever!
