60th Birthday

Well we all have birthdays some we like and some we don’t….my 60th was a keeper man it ran for a whole week…started with my son giving me a new phone…then on the day he took the family out for dinner to the Mandarin Restaurant (Chinese food)  then on Sunday, like yesterday… my daughter rented a hall for a some friends and family to come help celebrate. And celebrate we did…lots of fun was had …I even had a cry..why you might ask well a lady who runs the Stampin Canada web site was invited and I was under the impression she couldn't make it so was I looking for her NOOOooo!!!!…all of a sudden 2 girls came in and said we have a surprise guest with us… well holy moly it was her the infamous Wenchie from Winnipeg...and that folks brought tears to my eyes…We had people from Winnipeg,,,Hamilton…Burlington…Woodstock… Thorold…St. Catharines…Niagara Falls…it was all of Southern Ontario crafting friends… family and close friend's…My 2 good friends Lou-Anne and Kathy helped to bring all this together for my special day…I thank them very much…my Bible study gals did a great gift of also helping with setting up and organizing things as well…what a wonderful group effort done by all…we had a pot luck dinner…. as for me at 60 what do you buy but an old gal …other then huge underwear and nighties/socks LOL…So I had asked for fellowship with friends and family and FOOD,that was gift enough for me… for a long time I have wanted those Prisma pencils and have saved and saved and of course things happen and the money dwindles and ya still save cause I know eventually I was getting them...Well guess the word got out because I received so many gift certificates for Michaels that I coulda bought 2 sets of 132 with all the 50% discount coupons I got with them….Was I shocked or what…so I bought 2 circle punches along with the money and I still have 70 plus dollars to spend @ Michaels…I was one spoiled but much appreciated lady that day…

I also got 2 gift certificates for Wal-Mart and I used them to get a wonderful phone cover  for that new phone I don't wanna ruin it with dropping…and money still to spend there…as well a wonderful gal and her girls gave me a gift card for another fave restaurant of ours and its enough to take out the whole family…

Like I said spoiled spoiled spoiled…


As you can see by the photos I went shopping LOL
