Good Morning Friends~Here in Colorado we are having high winds; it started last night and actually blew some slats out of our fence. I kept waiting for rain and hail-then I would have been really worried; I'm thankful that it has just been windy. On Saturday night my family gathered to celebrate my birthday; what fun! The entire day was so nice; it started out with hubby and I going out to breakfast and ended with family. I am blessed beyond measure!
Peanut sitting with me; love our grands.

We are missing four, but you can see what a big group we are.
One of my presents was for our new house-new pretty jars for the pantry and also baskets. I am not as organized as my girls and these will definitely help me, besides looking so nice.

Our youngest granddaughter-she is the spitting image of her mama.

When we were up in Estes last month, hubby and I went into the Glass Blowing shop. I loved the pieces for sale, but the price made me leave them there. Kim and her family got me a candy dish; isn't it beautiful. Purple is one of my favorite colors.
This beautiful sewing basket arrived on Friday; it is from Barb-my BFF in Ca.  She is one talented lady; made this herself(I think she should sell them), picked out the colors for me.  This will be center stage in my sewing room.
The three baskets and one jar for the new house. Now  if my girls can help me make my new pantry pretty and organized, I'll be so happy.  Thank you Carrie and family!

Hubby gave me two tickets to the Beach Boys concert here in June.  I had told him I wanted to go but then figured they were too costly.  Only two of the original group are still alive, but just going and hearing the music will be such fun.
I'm off right now to run errands-we found a great deal on mulch so have to go check it out.
Hope you have a great day and don't experience the wind like we are.


  1. Happy belated birthday! How fun to be able to celebrate with most of your grands. Hope you are well!

  3. Happy Birthday to you!!! You received some beautiful presents - Mom loves that dish. With the big family you have, it seems like there is always a birthday to celebrate:)

    We have those winds today, and all night too. We want to walk, but Mom says it will be tough going.
