Hurricane Irene!!

Irene was sort of a bust for most of us-which I'm very thankful!! Our yard was full of leaves, twigs and a few branches. We had one tree in the park come down but no damage! The bottom picture is a house next to Erin. Her neighbors had trees come down. One on the side of her went away from her house. If it had gone the other way, it would have gone through her house!! We lost power on Sat from noon til about 8:00 pm. Some of our friends still don't have power. My friend in Brewster just got it back early this morning. So we are all grateful!

Lena is now 3 Months!!!

Lena is already 3 months. Alison took Lena's 3 month picture by the lamb. The lamb is shrinking! Love the picture of her in the bag. JoAnna gave Alison that bag and didn't realize how big it was. Lena fills it!! She's pretty in that color blue. I gave Alison that outfit. Someone gave it to me.

We Ate, Danced, and Danced!!!

Everyone seemed to have a good time. There was plenty of food and opportunity to dance!!

More from our 40th Anniversary Party!!

A few more pictures from our party! JoAnna had a banner made for us. It has our wedding picture from 1971 and then our picture from Alison and Scott's wedding 2 years ago. Click on it and see how young we were and George actually had hair!! It's very nice. I made a table runner for each table. It has hydrangeas on it and outlined in dark blue material. Scott calmed Lena down while Alison went to the hairdresser.

40th Anniversary Celebration!

We had a wonderful celebration on Sat in honor of our 40th anniversary. We had most of our family, good friends, good food, and good entertainment with Freddie and the Maybellines!! The cake was gorgeous and tasted good too!! Even Miss Lena enjoyed herself and was a good girl!

Birthday Hats!!

My two sisters-in-law and myself are all born in Aug and are Leos. We exchanged gifts last night after our cookout to celebrate all of our birthdays. Suzanne gave us hats and bought one for herself. We sure are stylish, aren't we?? We had a lot of laughs with all of us here. Some of the subjects we laughed at I wouldn't put on my blog, but they were funny!!!

Mary's Birthday!

This is Mary Smith. She just turned 93 on July 28th. She usually joins us at Piccadilly Deli every Sunday after church. So this Sunday, Lee found out that it was her birthday on the 28th of July, so she had them bring out a muffin with a candle in it and the whole restaurant sang happy birthday to her. She was so surprised and seemed very pleased!! She looks great for 93 years old!!
