~*Birthday Fun*~

Hello Dear Friends! Today was a full day of family, food, and fun! We all got together to celebrate my dear MIL, Mary's, birthday. We had some fabulous food ~ lasagna, spaghetti, homemade garlic bread.... and lots of PIE! It was all so yummy! After we all had our bellies full... the guys escaped on their karts for races while the girls gabbed. The weather was marvelous & I think we all had a wonderful time.

My sweet SIL, Robin, made a needle punch from one of my freebie patterns. It was the perfect size to fit a jewelry box she had found. It made a wonderful gift for her Mom. Inside the box was an old family photo of Mary with all her kiddos (there are 5) from about 1970 - I'm guessing. It was a sweet treasure to tuck inside the box. The glow of happiness really showed on Mary's face when she opened her loving gift.

Mary loves to decorate for the seasons. With each, she puts ornaments & touches throughout her home and yard..... it is always fun to see what she has and does. She and my FIL, Richard, have even won the Christmas lighting contest in our town several times over the years. Tony and I thought she might like a Halloween rug that I made. (I think she was happy with it.)

Happy Birthday Mary!

Well.... after a fun, full day.... t'is time for a full night of sleep. I hope you too had a fabulous weekend!

Many warm smiles to ya.... Betty
