What a lovely way to spend an afternoon!

I went to a birthday party this afternoon--a party that was held to celebrate our neighbors, Gary and Kristi's twins' first birthday! I got to meet several people I'd heard a lot about from Kristi, but didn't know, so that was fun... I really enjoyed Kristi's parents!!! They were as pleasant as I'd imagined them to be. :) (They even posed for a picture when I asked them if they would!)
Kristi's mom made the delicious birthday cakes pictured here: "Crazy cake" on the left and a tasty carrot cake, (on the right) which contained coconut and walnuts too... She even sent some cake home for the rest of my family to enjoy! :)

Here's most of the people who were at the party... I was very glad to have some time to talk with Gary's mother (in the green blouse) about working at the nursing home, as she's been working there for a few years now and could fill me in more about, well, everything.
Here's Kristi and the birthday boys:
James in the yellow M&M shirt and Michael in the red one...

Amelia (or MeMe, as most everyone calls her) was happy to help her brothers by blowing out their birthday candles!

"Grandpa", feeding Jimmie his ice cream...

Present opening time!
What a fun day!

~Thank you again, Gary and Kristi, for inviting me to the boy's party!!!

PS. The cake's gone. :)

What a nice time! I like 1st birthday parties! My little Izzy is going to be 1 in May!
I laughed when I read "P.S. the cake is gone!" I'm sure, it looks delish!
Okay, you KNOW where I'm headed!

Thanks for your comment.
Thanks for telling your brothers about my brother's blog. He is at that point of blogging where you think "I don't think anybody reads, or is going to read my blog". I'm sure you know what I mean, it took me a while to get "blogging buddies" but after a bit I "met" them :).

So sorry to keep you from your bed even longer! :)

Speaking of night owls, we have a real one that's been "Who-whoooing" at us the last couple of nights from the trees down by the quonset. Millie used to bark at it, but she's gotten used to it now!

I had to smile when you said the word, "Delish", as I'd never heard that shortened version of the word until I was over at Gary & Kristi's house a couple weeks ago... :)

But, I'd best get some rest now too! Love you and sleep well~
