Hope you all have a wonderful Lord's day!

The ones with the plain black strap were only $14.95! Now any way you look at it, that is saving money big time! :) And I do like to do my part with the budget by saving money!
And just in case anyone thinks I don't have a sense of humor or I can't laugh at myself, well this next picture should change your mind about that! My youngest bio son and second of 4 combined children came by yesterday to visit. We were talking and suddenly he lifted his arm; I mean that precious little arm that used to curl around mine as he nursed; the one I gently bathed and oiled with baby oil so his skin would always be soft.....that one....is now THIS ONE....
That is a pinup girl, I guess I should have rated this entry. I looked at it and then I burst out laughing so hard that I almost fell to the floor. My surprised son said "Well, mama, I'm glad you finally got a sense of humor!" I replied, "Oh, son, you have no idea what you've done for my sense of humor!" I DO NOT understand what this tattoo generation is all about. You can't miss them, and in fact it makes me feel kind of behind the times that I don't have one, well, that is if you don't count my eyeliner. After having that done, I would never let anyone use that sewing machine type weapon on a big area of my body. Then of course, in my most motherly voice, I said, "So you can afford a tattoo huh? Well then I won't be worrying about you anymore." As a disclaimer, this child is 30 going on 12, and I'm not kidding. He's the sweetest man, but not a lick of common sense. Gotta love him. And I do! Oh, he only wants two more tattoos, isn't that comforting? Checking out for Saturday!
It was a lovely party! As I've stated before, if you want to do something for someone in a retirement center, do it at lunch. They just love for their friends to share in their experiences! Three of her six children were there along with a son in law and a daughter in law. We had cake and shared it with all those in the dining room..
All was going well until mama's dear friend was coming over to our table and fell! I wasn't sure what was happening but my brothers and husband jumped up and started trying to help her up. A nurse came and took her to her room to evaluate her and she's o.k. thank goodness. I took her a piece of cake later and she said she sure was glad she didn't break anything because this was beauty parlor day....they will go get that hair done if they have to drag themselves.
Starting Monday, mama will start having a private sitter with her for a few hours each day. She isn't so happy about that, but it is the only way she can stay. If for no other reason, girls, keep exercising! One day in the far, far away future, we'll be old. :)
Happy Birthday Mama! Today mama is 84 years old....the picture is her 82nd birthday with her cake and my brother, the eldest, as he likes to be called! If the cake looks big, we get that size so everyone at the retirement center can get a slice.
Mama is one of the original SAHM with six of us kids. I, personally, would have gone to work, how much easier that would have been than to wrangle with all of us! Poor mama, we were all 4 years apart with the exception of the first two and the last two who were 3 years apart. So, we always had every age group, from hormonal teens to tumbling toddlers to crying babies.
So here's to you mama, we all love you and appreciate you...have a great day!
Here are Mickey and Pluto crouching down, hoping we won't come over and make fools of ourselves with them!
We went from park to park and did lots of stuff....my favorites were, Expedition Everest, Soaring, Tower of Terror and Nemo. Expedition Everest is a huge roller coaster. We rode it several times, one day 3 times in a row. My stomach started to protest after the third time.
We walked and walked and did too much to tell. It was so much fun (although don't try to tell my feet that!), but I'm glad to be home. So thanks to our 7 husbands, children and my two sweet dogs for living without us for 5 days. They all survived!
Mary Grace, Emily and Katie had a great week together and today Emily flew back home. I want to write more about the party, but I am tired....a good tired.
AND, I have to start packing to go to Disney World Tuesday with my sisters. So more later!
