Having my cake and eating it too!!

Dear goodness. . . .what a party it was is. . ..

It was very tempting to show you the picture of my big boys clowning about. . .

but instead I'm showing you their mature . . .friendly side with a wee twinkle in their eye.

After dinner at the Keg with the big kids. . .we came back to our house and enjoyed dessert made by Bea. . .

( I immediately tried to rope her into the MGCC. . . smart girl saw me coming)

Thank you .. .oh so much for all the smiles yesterday.

I was absolutely blessed beyond belief and so humbled by all the posts and comments helping me celebrate my Jubilee.

I said. . . "I don't deserve all this kindness. . . .it's too much. . .they are too kind"

He smiled. . . and was a bit teary. . .you blessed us both. . .thank you!!!

I've not many pictures to prove where I've all been and what I've been doing. . .

but at the end of the week, I'll do my best effort to tell the stories. .. .in review.

All for now. .with love,

  7. Is that a silk scarf, all twisted and wrapped around your neck? The color is perfect for you!

  8. Is that a glowing crown I see? A new one must have been purchaced for you this year. I wonder if there is a story behind it. I sure hope you didn't have to wear it at the Keg...or maybe that would have been fun. Looks like you have been having wonderful birthday cakes. Kathy
