My Dad looks good for having had surgery on Thursday. My sister and I are the bookends in our family, as I am the oldest and she is the youngest. I have four brothers in between.
Here are three of my four brothers, my youngest brother had to leave early before this picture was taken. He and his wife just had their first born baby in June (her actual due date was to have been in August). Baby Bella is still in the hospital as she is a premie. She weighed in at 2lbs and some ounces, not quite the 3lbs. ... but by the time I left San Antonio, she did weigh the 3lbs. Please keep her in prayer.
Here is a group picture of my sister, cousins, aunts and my mom. We played the "No, Know, Knows, Nose" game. My sister copied pictures of each guest when they were younger and put them on necklaces and they were handed to them as they arrived (you can see some of us are wearing them) If anyone mentioned the word "No, Know, Knows, Nose " the person who heard it then takes their necklace away. The person who aquires the most necklaces wins the game and a prize, as well as the person who never gave up their necklace. It was very funny trying to carry a conversation when people are trying to trick you into saying these words. After the game was over everyone took their own necklace with them as one of their party favors.
Being that our birthday party was a Garden Theme, we baked our own beehive birthday cakes and decorated with frosting to resemble honey and some candy bees (You can see a bee between the letters T and H).
We blew out our candles (of course it took me several trys to get my candles out). It was a great party, can't wait to plan for next years birthday party.
Here is what I am giving away for our "Birthday Giveaway".
A partiotic apron, soap bottle apron and a cookbook. I have a few other items also.
It's not to late to enter, just leave me a comment with your email on the previous Birthday Post or on this post. I will be drawing a name on July 11th and annouce the winner's name on Saturday.
