Some Birthday Blessings

Hey Gang, Happy November!  Whew!

So, I'm busily working behind the scenes on my Flourishes Release cards for November so I can't show you anything of the fabulousness YET....but I thought I'd show you some family photos from our Birthday celebrations this past weekend.

Our daughter, my mom and I are all Birthday Girls in October, so we celebrated together, and we finally had time to have our daughter's friend party this weekend too.


These were the boxes topped with home made paper roses that the girls made at the party.  They had fun and did a great job.  It was fun to display them together at our breakfast bar stools.


This is us birthday girls...my sweet mom, our sweet girl, and myself.  My brother and sister-in-law made the Birthday Dinner and my hubby made the desserts.


Ok, not a good picture of me, but a really sweet picture of our toothless seven year old.  


Our middle son :)  He's the kind of kid that even at 11 still wants to sit on my lap, cuddle and have me scratch his back!


Blowing out the 3 candles :), my husband made a Black Forest Cake for my mom and a Lemon Meringue Pie for me.  Both great.   That's my dad to the right supervising.


And I can't resist but have 2 pictures of our niece.  This is her *chair*.  My Mom (Grandma) made it, she's made one for all of the grandkids specialized to each of them and each one of them has LOVED it!   Our niece is so delightful :)


K, is this not adorable?  She was Yoda for Halloween.  My brother is a serious Star Wars aficionado....he dressed as Darth Vader.  

See you later this week!  Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for sharing your birthday pictures, Christine. I love the three generation picture. Next time the three of you are together, get one of your hands showing the three generations. I took one of my mom, daughter and myself and we all cherish the picture. I wrote a story of what our hands have accomplished. Your husband is a sweetie to make the desserts. You are one lucky lady to have celebrated such a wonderful birthday with family. Have a great day.
