Wanna Surpirse?

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy sweet sixtyfi-iv
Happy Birthday to you!
Love you Mom!
Yes, my sweet Mom turned a young
65, this Saturday. She was busy doing the business thing--so we celebrated today.
Now I am not bragging-- too much-- but, I made a killer seafood lasagna for today. Have you ever made something and it was so good that you surprised yourself? It was the first time I had made it so I had to warn everyone in advance.
But seriously--it was FANTASTIC!
We had that and a great salad and French bread of course. Why of course? Because if you live in Louisiana you eat French bread with everything.

It was a lot of fun!

The picture below is of me and my little sister. She is 7 years younger than me. Yes, I changed her diapers--and then in turn~ she changed the diapers of my kids. Talk about pay back. ;)

Hear is Keith showing them our pictures from the mountains. Can't you tell Jeannie is just thrilled? I sure hope that Keith did not show them the picture he took of me using the nature potty. :0 !!!!!!

Here is proof that lunch was fab!
Dad said that I had better remember how I made the lasagna--because it would need to be remade. Hint! Hint!
That made me feel good.
Have I told you that I love this guy?

This is what my husband says spending too much time with my family does to him.
What a man--who could resist that face. Notice that no question mark followed that question. ;)
Have I showed ya'll what spending time with Keith's family does to me?

Just kidding---neither spouse was harmed while spending time with the others family. :)
Unless I can blame all my gray hair on that.

Now for a little fun!

Mary over at Mary's Writing Nook -is going to lead us out in a little fun. Ready? I have participated in a Pay It Forward a month or so ago. This will be a little different.
This time I will get to touch three peoples lives. O.K, o.k.--stop jumping up and down so that you can finish reading. Are you back???? Good. :)
Who does not like to get a little surprise now and then delivered to your door?
No---I will not be showing up on your door step personally.
Phew!!!! Now that you can breath again............
Oh, I forgot this---I found out about this over at Samaratin Womens--yes, a good pass on from Denise.
Thank you Denise--love ya girl!

Here are the rules:

1.~Leave a comment on my blog that says you want to play. First three folks to comment will get a gift!

2.~Do the same thing on your blog!The first three folks who leave a comment and commit to doing this on their blog, too, will get a surprise from you at a surprise time in the next 365 days!

I may be too excited to wait too long...we shall see.

Those were some funny pics tonight. Your mom looks beautiful and fit. What type of seafood was in that lasagna?

Denise said...

Your mom and dad make a very lovely couple. Your sister is also a cutie. You of course are a true beauty.

Happy Birthday to your mom. I make a seafood lasagne too, but the last time I did it, I estimated that it was a forty dollar dish, so it is only for really special occasions. My mom's bd would count!

Kellan said...

It looks like you had a wonderful time at your mother's birthday. You have such a close bond with your families.

Today is Family Day here in Ontario - a brand new holiday. I do hope people use it to spend time with their families. The family needs to be brought back.

Take care and thanks for sharing this wonderful celebration.
