It's a long weekend if it takes until Tuesday to rest up!!

The weekend really started last Wednesday when the yearly meet up of the "October Babies" started. Once a year my Richard, his brother Dan, son Clint and nephew Steve get together to celebrate their birthdays

(all in October...so October Babies ....)

Celebrations begin the minute they are all together and golf is always the order of the day. They managed to hit three courses in the area then ended the weekend with the Birthday Bash for Richard's 70th.

Of course there was the annual toasting to the Members of the Board.....

Saturday evening several followed them home from the golf course and others trickled in as the evening wore on...hamburgers.....brauts...and cake were all in order.



...he managed to collect a nice bunch of presents as well......




And the cake......

Seems the Sea Bee and DIL also made a cake...

..and it was just perfect as far as the B'day Boy was concerned.

until he started ...
...moving it ....
(no beer was harmed in the process)
The whole weekend was a sucess as far as I could tell......and the Birthday Boy......well what do you think???
Plans have already been started for next year.........

Catching up.....

Things have been happening around here...you can be upstairs just tending to your own business when you hear something going on and look down the steps to find.....

with
things happening in your "powder room".....well we got one of those new toilets that have the fancy 'dual flush'......now we argue over which button does what......doesn't really matter......it does what it should anyway.

Then there are the Baby Day days......these are always fun.....you never know what is gonna happen........for example......

....there are always tools to be tested........

.....naps to be taken......


....talking with PopPa D or just checking out the newest toys.....

... then everyone wants in on that fun...
So you see it has been busy around here......plus the roses have all decided to bloom.......and it is almost November!!!
by the mailbox
and Luke's Rosebush too!

A New Month......

.............and another Birthday!!
Yesterday was Vicki's Birthday........not only is she my bestest friend but she has also been 'dubbed' Aunt Vicki by my children.....seems if something were to happen to all of us she will inherit Tinkerbell... She has finally caught up with me in age and when talking to her this morning I reminded her that in 4 years we would be 60!!......since we are bestest friends we do things together...


Once a month the local knitters of LSSK gather for our LLM (Little Local Meet) for pot luck and knitting time together. So along with eating and fun we celebrated Vicki's birthday with Cake and even blew out the candle for good wishes for the next year.......not to worry....I ate cake for her since she was home celebrating with her family instead.......well....she is my bestest friend...


Happy 56th Birthday my friend...
..I know we have many more to come!!

Happy Birthday to my Baby....

I can hardly believe my Baby is 29 today.......He has grown into such an interesting man.


I asked what he wanted for his Birthday and he said "A jelly roll like Ma Darnell use to make.....Strawberry would be nice"...well....this seemed easy enough.......so went through Mom's Recipe Box......and gathered the ingredients then baked up the cake part.......spread on the jelly ......then the trouble started...... I have made these before but it has been sometime.....I knew you had to spread sugar on the area you place the cake part so it is easier to roll.......but what I seemed to forget was how long the cake should cool before doing this......well......it ain't a pretty thing......but it tastes just fine


...now would you believe Rodney wanted to spend the day at the Sea Bee and DILs so he could have a "baby day" ??

He is Uncle Ro-Ro to the twins and a few un-official nieces and nephews around......and he is very good at it!.........well.....except for the changing poopy pants part.

Rodney works for US105 Radio......he has done just about everything around there from starting out in sales to helping with broadcasts and now is the Promotions Co-Ordinator. At the moment the Children's Miracle Network is his big promotion.....among the things he does with this is interview some of the children and their families....and I have seen it open his heart to something that everyone takes for granted....



I have watched this little guy grow into a loving man with a huge heart and am proud to say that he is my Baby.....

Happy Birthday Son........
