That was a fun birthday party!

Izzy insisted on writing: CREATED BY Isabelle
Just like all the other pages.
Yes, today I am married to a senior citizen! We had a sleepover and a party.
He's not really into birthdays for himself, nor Christmas. I like having the kids over for birthdays, though. It's so much fun through their eyes. It keeps one young!
Thing is, you can't just get close eyes for the birthday boy. We follow my gramma's tradition and everyone gets presents! If I had a birthday she would always buy something for my brother!
For our delicate flowers: Isabelle got a Darth Vader flashlight. Also, new washable markers. She knew they were washable, since there were bubbles on the packaging.
Caitlin was given a dragon's egg. It hatched a Toothless dragon.
Josephine: Anna, Elsa, and Olaf figures.
JL got a light saber.

In the morning, 6:30 a little girl beside Grampa asked something, she was so quiet that he couldn't hear her. He put on YTV for them! Retro cartoons, back from the olden days when Caitlin was a kid!

Izzy and I went to see if we could see muskrats. No dice! I did her hair in a nice, fancy ponytail, so she could see her drawings!
I created hubby an animal calendar for his office. All of my photos of critters near and far,alive and cats passed over.
He ordered himself a pie from the local bakery, sans eggs, dairy, yeast. Each of us had a slice with its own candle, then we sang happy birthday and blew them out all at once.
With most of us fighting cold viruses, it was the sanitary thing to do!

I can see this was such a fun time, love that superb ponytail, and presents for all, I'm sure the calendar will be well admired by all, and a "senior citizen" ...down here we have to be 65 to qualify, I call it " Senior Graduation", and we both are well and truly years past that milestone. Hugs to you both on this special day, Jean.

BELATED GREETINGS TO THE SENIOR ONE!!! What a wonderful way to adjust a gathering to suit all. The card making and 'rat' walk and who knew there were still dragons eggs to be had? &*> Blessings to you all... YAM xx
