Guess what today is?

This song was the way we kids always serenaded our parents every May 31. I can't believe I forgot to include it in the party for my parents last month. Oh well, I sang it to my hubby over the phone a few hours ago and then found the clip on youtube of the original version. Enjoy! I am praising the Lord for 21 years with the best husband in the world!

party time

I am having a great time visiting my parents and flitting from anniversary party to graduation party to birthday party. I still have some shopping (tomorrow the plan is to head to the outlets. yippee), visiting with friends and family, a ladies' retreat with my mom and father's day. Then I pack it all into 2 suitcases and head back home to my own family. My husband (did I mention I married the best guy on the planet?) is holding down the fort well and is especially glad that we have a vonage phone that allows him to call me several times a day with questions like "how do I add time to the cell phone?", "where do we keep the bag of extra batteries?" "How do I pay the credit card online?" etc. I get the feeling that I am going to be appreciated in a new way when I get home.
Web access is very limited for me as my parents only have dial up access (read SLOW) and I don't plan to spend much more of my limited time left at the public library where I am hiding out and enjoying the air conditioning today.

My parents, my siblings and myself get a long overdue family picture at the 50th anniversary party.

Mom and Dad cut the cake now .....

and 50 years ago.

The recent college grad. Congratulations to my beautiful niece.

At the 88th birthday party for a family friend, also named Alice. Actually at this little tea party there were FOUR of us named Alice. That was a first for me!

Wordless Wednesday: Allergy Skin Test (aka Fried Egg Arms)

#2 son was tested recently for allergies. 3 came up positive. We thought the positive results looked like fried eggs after the doctor drew the two crooked circles around the reaction sites to measure them.
