Enough...... huh? .......

Yea, I know....I'm stuck on the birthday....but hey, how often do you think I'm gonna turn sixty?


Just thought I'd tell you about a few things I did for the birthday day, week, month.....year?


First, thanks to all for the birthday wishes assuring me I would go on even though I'm elderly.  Each and every one is very special to me.

I have five siblings and four of them were in town last weekend and we went out to eat for my birthday and my younger brother's birthday.  You remember him right?  Anyhow.....we missed the baby brother and his wife who have recently moved out to Texas and couldn't be with us.


We are a big, loving....mostly...., loud family and we had a great time.  Below are some scenes from the night.


Me with my eighth birthday present

The honorable eldest and his sweet and beautiful wife

My beautiful older sister.....thank you for organizing this party!



The beautiful youngest sister and her handsome husband

The old lady and her hot husband



My brother, the fifth child, and his beautiful wife



All of us the waitress could fit in the picture

And the rest of us

That was a really fun night!


Sister Cathy brought me this fun wine glass so of course I took it to the restaurant.....yes, I washed it first.....


Sunday night some friends took us out to dinner to celebrate...ever notice how people really notice when you become elderly??? That was another fun night of laughing our heads off.


On my actual birthday, I started off the day with a kiss from my Superhero as he headed out the door to work.  


I heard from every one of my children which made me so happy!!!


I went to sit with a friend and when lunch time came, decided to walk........parking is scarce where we were.......over and get sandwiches from a little shop nearby....when I left it wasn't raining.....I'm pretty sure you can figure out where this is heading....as I came out of the sandwich shop it was storming!  Blowing rain and huge drops.  I had my umbrella and so was able to keep the upper half of me and more importantly the food dry.....but my white pants were soaked and spattered with mud.  
But I didn't lose my parking space!  


We ate and then my friend got the call to meet the doctor in another waiting room.  
I witnessed a miracle after lunch that day.  Best. birthday. present. ever!


Leaving there, I went to my mama's to give her a kiss and thank her for giving birth to me and putting up with me for sixty years!  She said.....are you really 60!?
Notice the look of disbelief  


I headed home and the superhero came to pick me up to go to a movie and out to dinner.   The Superhero refuses to buy cards because they're so expensive.......so below is the card he made me...


This, boys and girls, is one of the many reasons he has Superhero status.  In case you can't read it, it says I love you in seven different languages!  The boy is brilliant!  I had already bought a few my own present.  He did also bring me two Ugandan necklaces, which I love!


My sweet MIL and Russell's Uncle had come by the day before and left cards and presents.  


Thanks to all who made this such a special birthday!


Most of all thank you to my Father in heaven and let me leave you yes, I know you thought I'd never end this with this verse that has special meaning to me....


Every good gift and ever perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father.......James 1:17

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I think you deserve to milk this milestone birthday for all it's worth! ha! Glad it was a special day.

Needled Mom said...

It sounds like a positively divine birthday. What are they going to pull off when you turn 70????? I loved seeing all the people rejoicing that you survived the first 60 years. The wine glass....tooo cute!

Cathy said...

Well, at 70 for her, I will be 74 and older brother will be 77, so I guess we will have to leave the planning at that point to the younger ones. Glad you enjoyed you 60th birthday......you can look forward to many more joyous years!!

Quite the celebration! Happy birthday week!

Sweet Tea said...

At the age of sixty, and thereafter, I think EVERY birthday should be celebrated BIG!! So glad your wonderful family celebrated you in such fashion & fun!! Really, turning 60 is great fun, especially if you don't think about the number too much!! You look great and are obviously loved. Great scripture!!

Dear Nancy, how wonderful to have almost all your siblings gathered with you to celebrate your birthday. Your mom looks so delighted with you. I'm sure that she feels as if you were a gift not only to her but to your family and to the Universe. Peace.

Happy 60th, Nancy!

Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my friend. And may I just say that it is nice to know someone who is actually older than I am for a change? It may only be a few months but every millisecond counts, you know? And you look beautiful, dalink!

You are truly blessed. I wish my family members would have done something special for me. I even sent my brother $60. and my sister $60. when they both turned 60. Do you think they did the same in return?...Not! I get tired of being the good one.
