My 60th Birthday Celebration.

 
 
I seriously find it hard to believe myself, I am now 60... I have been blessed over the years with the most wonderful family, friends, job, health -- not so much the wealth, but who needs it when you have everything else.  We had a great day down at the "Bench"  The park near my house there are benches in memory of people, and we have one there for my Mom, Dad and brother.  So on my Birthday we celebrated there, so all my most favorite people could be there.

So I am the lady wearing Orange in these pictures - I am also the only person who is in all three
 
First up is my and my kids, and two daughter in laws.  Next picture is me and my sister and brother, and last up is me and my grandkids, so sad, two of my grandkids were on field trips and could not be there.  My oldest granddaughter Jada is graduating High School today, and my youngest is 18 months. 
 


I have been celebrating my birthday for the last two weeks, and will continue over the weekend with a camping event with girlfriends and my sister and our daughters. I have done  little stitching.  Hope to have at least my ornament done and my Snow Guy before the end of the month. But if not, oh well.. It is my birthday.
