Birthday Blues??? Not for me....*VBS*

but I do have to wonder about soooo many birthday meals and luncheons *VBG* All I have to do is think about food and I KNOW just how this poor kitty feels!!
All in all my birthday has been a happy one, altho it will take a few days to recover from the amount of food and cake I have eaten! I have officially(as of 11:50 p.m.) completed my 67th year! And I'm proud of that!
A visit from my youngest DS and his two sons made my day on Saturday. Lots of hugs, kisses from this grandson.
And more hugs, kisses, giggles and wiggles from this grandson, the youngest. I made dinner for all of us, and the kids brought me a birthday cake. We took time out for a trip to the jungle gym on the school's playground, and then had cake and ice cream before they headed to another birthday party...LOL And I got these lovely flowers for my special day. The StarGazer Lilies are so fragrant, the whole house smells lovely. I'll be enjoying them for as long as they last! All in all, a most satifactory birthday *VBS* And many thanks to all of you who have sent me cards, both snail and 'e', and left birthday wishes here on my blog..*VBS* You are all such special friends, and I wish we could have had one big party with cake for everyone....and a FQ exchange....LOL. I found out tonight that Sweet Pea at Coffee Time Quilt Studio (see sidebar for link) and I share a birthday today..*VBS* Happy Birthday Paula! And for all you gals who read the Maverick Web Ring, Darcie has a birthday coming very soon, and Tonya is in line for a birthday this month also!

Happy Birthday! Glad you had such a good one! The grandsons are cuties. I hope you don't feel like that cat in the picture after all that cake and ice cream. I can't believe you are only 67, you are soooo wise and experienced and knowledgable... the quilt guru of blogger... just kidding with you, I love your quilt ideas and your maverick attitude!

Happy (belated) Birthday, Finn. I will blame the jet lag for not remembering sooner . . . but it's the Johnny-come-lately's such as me that make a birthday last and last and last *s*

Katie said...

Happy Birthday. Sure glad you had all those candles on all those cakes to blow out. It worked. This opressive heat (broke records for five days)you sent over a week ago finilly blew out. It just needed your extra contribution. LOL
Hugs, Katie

Jeanne said...

Happy Birthday, Finn, a wee bit late. I'm glad you had a nice day. The flowers look so pretty that I can almost smell them way across Lake Michigan.

andsewitis Holly said...

I'm a day late but I thought about you yesterday. Happy, Happy Birthday Finn!

Linda_J said...

Good thing that birthdays only roll around once a year with all that partying you have been doing---your cholesterol level will be as high as Ebby's arched back at that rate! Good thing too that I mailed your card as I sure forgot to stop by and say "happy birthday" here.

Your two grandsons look so much like their daddy. Littlest one looks like you caught him right in the middle of wanting to be somewhere else when the pic was snapped. So much energy, LOL--too bad we can't bottle it up and sell it.

Quilting Journey said...

Happy, Happy, Happy Dear Finn! Thinking of you and sending cyber hugs your way!

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

What a perfect day, the flowers are very pretty but pale in comparison to the hugs of your grandsons! Happy, happy birthday!

Katie said...

Yesterday I had lunch with a frind who was telling me about pictures of her son as a little boy. She said someone told her he always looked like he was saying, "Step on my toes and I'll stomp on yours." LOL. I thought of your younger grandson's pic you posted. I so love the character pics. They last forever and bring back such memories. Such wonderful grandsons!

Sandy said...
