Let The Celebrating Begin
Today was a busy day around here. We celebrated a special birthday in our family. JJ's big sister, and of course Grandma J's granddaughter turned fifteen.
Philip Johnny Bob was really excited about his first ride in the new car, and his first party of the season.
This is a special birthday for my granddaughter because her two BFF were there.....
to help celebrate, have pizza and cake, then head off to the movies.
It was special for the family because her Dad, SGT John will be heading back to Iraq in January for his third tour of duty.
I received some mail at my daughter's house too. Remember Post Card Cindy? She's the awesome person who has devoted several years to raising funds for children with cancer. Not only does she help with fundraising, she saves dollar bills all year long by putting them in a jar, resulting in a hefty amount to spearhead the Holiday fundraiser she puts on with Marey at LMNOP.
Cindy doesn't have a blog or website....she reads blogs but rarely comments....she is low profile never looking for recognition. Well all of this bragging about Post Card Cindy is for a reason....thanks to all the donors that wandered over from my blog to make a difference for two families, Cindy sent me this...
Isn't this bear the cutest?
It's on the cutest card from Post Card Cindy......thanking me....
And this scarf...that Post Card Cindy made for me. How amazing is this Angel?
Ummm, note to Cindy...if I didn't love the heck out of you, I'd never take my own picture...my arms are too short, and my face is too....close!
So, let me thank Cindy, and all of you again, because I really feel this scarf is a work of love from Post Card Cindy to all of you as well. If you come to the compound, I'll let you wear this beautiful soft scarf.....maybe.
And, yes Cindy, it gets cold here. It was 27 degrees at noon one day last week and right now it's 34 degrees.
