My Daughter's Birthday Update....

The photos have been sized, cropped and emailed back and forth between our homes today.
I thought you might like a little update about my daughter's birthday...

I started her special day by ordering the delivery of a balloon bouquet for her at work.
They make a great frame for her beautiful face!
I love this photo.
A lot!


Then, I stopped for a few carnations to top off her gift...


After racing home from work, then making and baking a cake, quick-cooling it in the deepfreeze, filling it with lemon curd and smothering it with whipped cream, I packed everything...flowers, cake, gifts...into the back cargo area of my Denali and drove v-e-r-y slowly to her house, not wanting any harm to come to her fragile cake.
I know you've seen this photo before...


I found the perfect gift for my daughter! It is an ornate sweet stand from our favorite shop, Jean Guy's Theodore's Den. I also included a very old china dinner plate from my china cabinet that belonged to her beloved Grandma English. This plate fits perfectly on the dessert stand. I loved watching her reaction when she was opening her gift and seeing her grandmother's delicate plate...


Some photos were taken by my granddarling.
Others were taken of my granddarling while she was taking photos of us!

Brenda, what a lovely celebration. I LOVE that photo of your daughter amid the balloons, just gorgeous!!!

Sweet photos, Brenda. Your gift to your daughter is great and precious.

Thanks so much, Barb, Anne and Candi!
I appreciate your comments, because I sometimes think my pieces about my family might be a bit boring to people who don't know them...I'm happy to know that you enjoy reading this!
