I am 57........I am 57......

Somehow when you are young you never think that you will ever be 57....but it happens...I proud to say that I have finally got there!

Tuesday I drove into Austin and met with Nikki and Vicki for lunch .... we laughed....giggled...and discussed all that needed discussing.......so that was a little icing on my cake because I try and celebrate the whole month ...

Yesterday the Sea Bee, Angela and family invited Richard and I to their home for lunch/dinner and the Kid and his Alissa were to come later for my B'day and cake..........well.............seems some people can keep secrets around here........

because while sitting there holding babies (Nick in my lap....Nya using me as a brace for standing) in walked my Nancy, her hubby Bill and look who was right behind them........

neither let one thing slip the other day.....must have been hard...even when they told me bye..........

wasn't long and the Kid and Alissa showed (she took off work for her MIL-to-be!!) so all were present and what fun we had.....



....we held babies......ate ham, potato salad (thank you Nikki) green bean casserole (thank you Vicki) tossed salad and birthday cake..........a few had more cake than some.......but everyone I think enjoyed themselves..........who cares.....I did and it was my birthday!!!



I got gift cards..... set of the Hiya Hiya interchangeable and if that wasn't enough a case to keep them in and a case from my new 'gadget'......Richard gave me a MP3 player ......think I am too old??? I wanted it to hold pictures to carry with me.....has anyone noticed that no one has snapshots in their purses anymore???......well.....now I have a place to put some (has a larger screen so I don't need glasses to see the pictures) along with downloading books to listen to while knitting in the car or around.......and he got me silver ear buds with bling on the ends!!! I will be shiny.........

then there were the boys........my kids are famous for giving me ..........."interesting"........ya that's a good word......interesting gifts........well they haven't changed much.......

the Sea Bee gave me a pistol and the Kid the accessories.......when I opened the box I hadn't a clue what it was .....then the Sea Bee says......."It is big enough to knock something down but small enough to fit in your knitting bag"...........honest!! ask Vicki or Nikki.........

the day was full of surprises and fun and most of all baby kisses.........

.......almost forgot......when we came home.....this was in the drive.......

my fault really ......I use to take the boys with me when I did this to an Uncle I loved dearly......for several years he hadn't a clue who was doing it!!
