My Lilies

As many of you who know me well, know I like lilies. Aren't they beautiful!?...

Where Has The Summer Gone?!

Wow, the last time I posted was my birthday and I we just finished celebrating my youngest son's birthday. And not that I want to think about it, my daughter's birthday is in just over a month! Ahhh! Anyway here are some pics from his birthday. Liam's birthday was actually on August 3rd and since both Cliff and I worked day shift that day, we took him out for supper at Montanas. That in itself was lots of fun as if any of you have been there you'll know that the birthday prson gets to stand up and wear a helmet with horns on it. Plus it was all you can eat ribs night thus the pics hubby took of me :)

Finger Licking Good!

Me and my 3 year old cutie

Before they sing Happy Birthday to you, the staff ring a cow bell and call for the attention of the whole restaurant as "_____" is celebrating "_____". Liam had to stand on top of the chair. Just after him, at the table behind us a couple were celebrating their 50th anniversary!

The birthday boy and his sundae with sparkler and gummy worms - yummy! :)


Then we had his party a week later,(yesterday - Aug 10) as hubby & I were both home and had the day off. The theme of the party was Go Diego Go.

Present Time! The birthday boy was so excited as you may be able to tell by the picture.

Even though I had a few other party games planned, the weather was nice and the kids wanted to go outside and play on the Diego slip n slide that I bought a couple days before the party.





Rather than a birthday cake, we had Diego cupcakes that I made. Since the kids were all wet we just ate them outside on the deck. Unfortunately the chocolate hair was starting to soften and badly droop when this pic was taken, you can see in the black & white picture at the bottom what they were supposed to look like originally.
