My Surprise 60th Birthday Party

November 30, 2014

The last day of my birthday month... and what a month it's been! My 60th birthday, which actually fell on the 18th, is one that will go down in the history books. Friends near and far phoned or e-mailed with best wishes, and I was happy and surprised to reconnect with some who I couldn't believe even knew my birthday. Many cards arrived. My husband, who knows me so well....
chose this one.

And Flowers arrived, too...

My greatest surprise had been in the planning stages for many months. My daughters and my husband organized a party which was a total surprise until I walked through the door! How did they keep it so hush-hush?! My deepest thanks to them for all they did to celebrate my 60th birthday.
Cecely, Mariah, Me, Lindsay

Ted, Me, and my sister, Elizabeth. 
Very funny, Sis...

What's a party without balloons?

This is my grandson, Emrys, 2 1/2.

...or CAKE!


My oldest daughter, Cecely, organized a memory book of photos for me.
Oh, the memories! That's me at age 6 with my cat, Henry. I was a cat-person even then.

Family and Friends... You're the best!
