Happy Birthday to me- lol- on the 18th!

I got a message yesterday from one of my children wishing me happy birthday and saying all my kids were coming at 6 pm. They would be bringing the meal and cake. So had our 3 kids, both son-in-law’s, 2 older grandsons and wives, 4 other grandchildren, and all 4 great grandchildren here! Yea!!!
Here is a post on of the kids made today and I was wished a Happy Birthday by 123 relatives and friends. Completed my day! And Here we are!


I know I have a photo with Caleb’s family and also Lanie but I can’t find it tonight. May have seen it on Ashley’s phone. Look at Emily’s face because she knows everything is fixing to fall!-lol- and lastly the post. Better than any birthday card!!!

I may be late, but not less sincere! Tell baby Gus, that we think HER can do anything, too!!!! I see how loved you are. Wrap that around you when it gets cold in a few week. Glad to see our little honorary Cutie got to come, too! Love you sweet Toogie! You are truly blessed.

Happy Birthday Toogie! What a wonderful present to have your family all show up and such a tribute from your daughter. I know you won't, but after all that, I think you could sit back a relax for a bit.

Taking it easy is all I have been doing. Having almost all the kids here was so nice. Love listening to their conversations and watching all of them play, young and old. Emily is so tiny she can get on the floor and scoot around like the kids AND get up -lol- I can only remember being agile like that.

I understand, my knees just won't do that either.

How wonderful for you Toogie and I know you had a great day celebrating, because you were surrounded by all your kin, well almost all. Such a glowing testament to you from your family too. I can't believe how tall Grayson is standing next to Ashley. It was so lovely to see Avery there too, I bet Ashley and family are thrilled to have her home. All the photos are gorgeous. Such a beautiful family you have, love always Chris

P.S. I do hope that your back is improving, keep well and safe.

I hope my back will do better now. I am so ready to feel better, thank you.
Grayson is 6 feet 4inches but Ashley’s always been pretty tall herself. Funny you should mention this because when we were viewing the photos Ashley said it looked like we were arranged according to height-lol- my hubby has never been tall but age and disc messed up has shrunken him, at least in height-lol Nora is getting so tall for 8 years old. I hope she doesn’t get as tall as Grayson or his parents though. Dalton is Marsha’s son and he is tall too but oh so thin.

What a loving testament to someone who is obviously a very loved Mum, Grandma and Great Grandma, titles you have earnt and are blessed to hold. I know the Lord will continue to bless and your family you as you do his work each day. Happy Birthday and Many Blessings Toogie. Lynne in OZ

What a sweet comment Lynne, thank you. Even though you know you are loved it’s good when someone does something special just for you. Nora drew and colored me a card. She was crying and wouldn’t come in because on the way over her card got bent or folded. I had to go out and talk to her and let her know how special it was to me because she had included my favorite color on the front and told me how much she loved me. I displayed it with all my bought cards I received to let her know it meant just as much.

Laura, I just looked back at the video of when they brought the cake and I had to laugh again. While I was making a wish Gus ran up and blew the candles out- I just looked at him and he grabbed me around the neck and said’ I love you Gram!’ Yes, love makes everything alright Gus!-lol
Thanks Laura I am truly thankful for my family.

Happy belated birthday, Toogie. And many more. Today is my hubby's 80th birthday, but our celebration will be this Saturday with friends and family down at our oldest daughter's house.

Such a beautiful family. Lots of love showing there.

Today would have been my momma’s only sister’s birthday. Aunt Olar has long been dead but she used to tease me that I was a day older than her. When I was really young, I couldn’t understand why she looked so old if I was a day older. When I grew up, I realized it was more difference than one day.-lol- Tell your hubby Happy Birthday 🎂! Enjoy his party Saturday!!! Thank you
