Be careful what you ask for

There she is on her 60th birthday party we kids and grandkids threw for her this last weekend. It was a fabulously fun party for her and the rest of us. One of the best I have been to. Most of us did little skits/memories telling her what she means to us all. The homemade DVD of pictures was a huge hit (thank you married daughter!) and everyone even got their own copy to take home. There was lots of laughter and some tears (happy ones)as well and one crowded house, but in the end the thing she wanted most was a picture of all ten of her grandkids, and she got that as well.
Happy birthday Mom, you mean so much to us all.
Love Jolene

BTW I did make her a hat with earflaps and she was so kind to tell me the next day that she wants one without the earflaps, thank you very much. And I always thought when I was kid she had such big ears, go figure.

You Should Be a Doctor

You are practical, sharp, and very intuitive.

Optimistic and energetic, you are a problem solver who doesn't get discouraged easily.

You are also quite compassionate and caring. You make people feel hopeful.

You're highly adaptable and capable. You do well with almost any curve ball life throws at you.

You do best when you:

- Are always learning new subjects

- Use your knowledge to solve problems

You would also be a good therapist or detective.

I am trying to figure out

this flickr thing and blogging from flickr to my blog. I am not doing so good because I can not figure out how to put more than one picture on a blog entry (maybe I can't from flickr??)
Anyways, here is Sam's closeup on her birthday. Happy 21 SAM!! She shared her birthday with my hubby as they have their birthdays in the same month. I won't give him away though by telling you all how old he is now. Let's just say he wishes he was 21 again.

She got her blanket

There is she is, the neice, Sam, with her new rag quilt blanket that I made her wait for. For eleven months, I am a horrible Aunt. She love, love, loved it!


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
