We are having a PARTY!!!

Oh yes we are! 

My daughter, Cynthia, had a birthday in September and I have one in October.  This year both of our birthdays are what many people call 'milestone' birthdays.  Cynthia has been very excited about her birthday this year so she decided to have a big party to celebrate. 

I am usually somewhat ambivalent about my birthdays.  It's not that I dislike them *laughs* I just don't make a big deal about them.  Pass the hot fudge sundae, and I am happy - especially if you have added peanuts!  What more do you need?  *winks*

However, as I said, this is a 'milestone' birthday for both of us - and kind of a fun one because I am exactly twice Cynthia's age.  I threatened to crash her birthday party since she insisted that I celebrate this birthday of mine.  She thought it was such a good idea, that she reserved the fellowship hall at her church.  *roflol*

We are also celebrating the fact that their adoption is progressing and I am getting closer to being able to wrap my Grammy arms around my newest grandchild - before I drive all of my online and offline friends and family crazy!

And!  We are celebrating the children's book that Cynthia has written and I am illustrating.

Lots of reasons to have a party, if you ask me! 

Oh, you might be wondering what milestone birthdays these are...  Would you believe that Cynthia is a very precocious child of 15?  No, I thought not - expecially since she is married and has two delightful daughters!  How about a very energetic 20?  umm....  not buying it, huh?  25?  no?  LOL!  Yep, my daughter is 30 years old this year =)  and, as just about every mother has ever said - that was a very fast 30 years!

So teach us to number our days
that we may present to thee a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12

God bless,

    Hmmm....just thinking I missed doing something clever like this when I was twice my girls' ages. Guess I have to wait until I'm 3 times one of them. That puts the first opportunity for that falling when I'm 66!

  8. Happy Birthday to you and Cynthia!

  14. Hey, Pam - that is what it is all about!

    Thanks, Tulip's! hehe - I am finding that adoption takes waaaaayyyyy longer than pregnancy! An exercise in patience for us all *whew*
