…. was last week! It was a great day, I heard from all of my four of my kids (though they aren’t really kids anymore), all 8 of my grandkids and a sweet Zoom call from #1 grandson with his wife, AND my #1 sweet granddaughter. Plus lots of friends. It’ so easy to say Happy Birthday in our world – cell phones make it so much easier than it used to be…. I was on the phone almost all day last Friday – loved it.
Had several sing to me – loved that!
Had an old friend stop overnight on her way from Florida to Missouri. That and the dinner my #1 DIL served really topped off my day well. My DIL had some adorable napkin holders that she put out – gold, sparkly peacocks. I love napking holders so this was a surprise that I enjoyed.
Then we had a delicious dinner with salad, bread sticks, AND “seafood lasagna”! 😀 Now that’s the way lasagna should be made. I love seafood so this was perfect. I failed to get a picture of it, but did get one with my “cake” (aka cupcakes), served on a peacock server with small matching dessert plates.
The bottom layer had chocolate covered strawberries and the top layer had “chocolate covered PECANS”. My DIL knows how I love pecans – and chocolate. They were a perfect finish to a near perfect day. Visiting friend was able to get a picture of #1 son & DIL and me!
I had a really great birthday – 😀 and yes, I am older than dirt!🎈🎂 😀 Looking forward to a lot more of them. 😀
Happy belated birthday. You look fabulous!! Pretty as a picture. So glad to see an updated photo of you. And the son and DIL. Your sweet DIL must kinda like you…she prepared such a wonderful meal in your honor. I love the peacock napkin rings and all the peacock plates. Beautiful table setting.
So glad you heard from all the kids. You are loved. Sending you a big hug from El Paso.
Ahhh thanks Leslie. I really did have a nice birthday – and it’s always a great to hear from kids & grandkids – especially on those ‘special days’. And, thanks for the compliment- I’m not crazy about updated photos of myself…. but I guess time keeps moving on. Thanks for the hug! Always love them.
Well, I can’t sing to you but I can wish you a very happy belated birthday, Iris! So glad you had a wonderful day with family, friends and great food. Today is my hubby’s birthday so we are enjoying celebrating him.
I’ll take the nice wishes. I did have a great day – hope your DH’s is as nice as mine was.
