It was a big weekend for Jacqueline Laurita — the Real Housewives of New Jersey star turned 44 years old on April 26, and she had a blast celebrating with her family. Plus, she's feeling great about the year ahead.

Jacqueline took to Twitter to share her enthusiasm over turning one year older.

"I'm having a great Birthday today so far. I'm very happy. Thank you all for your well wishes. This is going to be a productive year! #grateful," the busy mama wrote.

Her son, CJ, made her day extra special by greeting her with home-baked cookies and some balloons, one announcing "Happy Birthday, Mom!," and the other reading "Welcome Home!" Even more exciting for Jac, her daughter, Ashlee, also journeyed home to be with her.

"Chris and I just came home to this from CJ! @ashleeholmes is back too! XOXO!," Jacqueline gushed on Instagram.

CJ also snuck into his mama's bathroom to decorate her mirror with post-it notes spelling out Happy Birthday, as well as other sweet messages, like "You're awesome!" and "Make a wish." He even had a surprise birthday post-it hiding beneath the toilet-seat cover.

But, the best part of Jacqueline's day had to be when little Nicholas sang "Happy Birthday" to her with the help of his private tutor, who helps him communicate through his Autism challenges via song and music. Could he be any sweeter? Check out the video here.

It really does sound like a great day!
