This was my wine glass from Sunday nights birthday party. I was going to crop it, but the theme was UCLA Bruins. Have to say I wrote the date on my calendar, that stays on Betsy, then went to the kitchen and wrote it on Saturday. Needless to say we showed up a day EARLY! LOL. But it turned out to be a great, long over due, visit with our friends that evening. And that's how I got roped into helping set up for the party! The birthday girl, Karen, turned 40! I baby sat her when she was in Kindergarten........wooooop, sliiiip,......plop! Just where did those 35 years wonder off to? Well, Karen is a BIG Bruins ( LA collage football team) fan, and thus the colors on the table. I went out early that afternoon and helped our friend get things set up for the party. I got to visit with Keith, their youngest son, and see his baby boy for the first time. Their oldest son, Lance and his family were up from San Diego, so I visited with them too. We do see Lance and his family when we go to San Diego, they don't live to far from our youngest son. Lance is the same age as our OLDEST son........confused yet? I just call them all family.
|Karen really, really wanted these boots for her birthday.|
Her Dad tracked them down and got them for her.
Today was the birthday party for an eight year old, that is also considered "Family" and does call me Grandma. I did get her card scanned and post this morning before having to get ready and leave. You can see it HERE

Wheew! No more birthdays for a while now.
For all the T-day followers you might remember last month Elizabeth had a drawing, and drew my name. Well, I got my prize late last Tuesday afternoon and could hardly contain my self from sharing it before today. Now I'm not as patient as Elizabeth, cause I tore it open as soon as I got it into the house........LOL What a WONDERFUL surprise! Look what she sent me.
