A Celebration Summer!

My, oh my!  How time DOES fly!!
  I can't believe my last post was so long ago! Yikes!
Believe it or not, I DO have one (actually more than one) reason that I've been A.W.O.L....it's called P-A-R-T-Y!!
  Looking back over the past 30+ days, there have been 2 birthdays,  2 weddings (which have consumed my attention) and 2 moves-  my mother to a new retirement community, and my son, to college!  Can you say EXHAUSTED??? (And you can just forget about blogging!) 
But, hey- I'm back, so now let the partyin' begin!
  It all started earlier this summer when my son suddenly hit the big 2-0!
I mean, it was just yesterday I held his hand as we went off to pre-school, right?  It sure seemed that way.
  One thing I've learned about teenage boys over the last twenty years, is that they DON'T LIKE DRAMA!  So, that means a low-key, 'no-fuss, no-muss, it practically-didn't-happen', birthday party.
Well, not at my house!   We celebrated in fine Texas-style; with a touch of western decor (can't go overboard now you know),  steaks hot off the grill,
and of course his favorite... Texas Sheet Cake!  Topping off our little house party was a special pair of sunglasses he was thrilled to receive from his
 sweet sister and brother-in-law.....

Happy Birthday, Michael!
    Then it was time for an 80th Birthday Party/Open House 
for my own sweet mother!  
    Having just moved to a retirement community,
 we combined the birthday celebration with an Open House
 for all her friends to visit her in her new home.  
What a turnout she had!
A Birthday banner welcomed guests...
 while platters presented tasty treats both indoors...
and out!
 Our family finally sits for one group photo and joins in to say...
   
From ALL of us to our dear mother and grandmother...
Happy Birthday!

(Note:  To view the weddings go to 'Think Pink!'...The Wedding Blog! They will be posted shortly!)
