♥♥♥Birthday Bonanza♥♥♥

The Party is over.... It has been an exciting week for me turning 60 and all.... I swear I think am still 25.... and I pretty much try to act that way too... LOL LOL

I think it has almost finally coming to an end... My Birthday turned out to be a week of celebrating.... Mr Adventure surprised me with a small little red camera to carry around and take pictures for my blog. My everyday camera is so big and heavy to use that I have been looking for something I could carry in my purse so it is always with me... Guess you could say I am really getting hooked on bloggin now if my main concern is always taking pictures. But wait that wasn't all... He got me the most beautiful jewelry that I had been eyeing for a while... Isn't it just fabulous....

Now Friday night my daughter Denise had a dinner for me with just the family (which is very small). Of course it was minus my daughter Jennifer & her family in Arkansas... With work and school they just couldn't be here...

We had delicious food that my daughter, Denise & my sister in law, Kathy made... An Italian feast with Ziti, Rolled Stuffed Eggplant (stuffed with ricotta, mozzarella & parmesan cheese) and Lasagna.... A nice toss salad with peperoni, Italian Garlic bread and a Chocolate Raspberry Birthday Cake. YUMMO!!!

The evening was filled with cooking, eating, a few cocktails (of course) and family fun... What great closure to my week. I want to share just a few pictures of the evening. Of course with the kids it was pretty loud too but I wouldn't trade that for anything... They are all so adorable...

Here are a few other cute little gifts
Here is my lovin honey Ralph... Is he getting ready to spank me???

Look how big my darling little grandsons are. Wyatt just behaving while Dominick is looking for something to get into... LOL LOL And here is my brother Uncle Kenny playing tug a hair with Dominick... Dominick thought it was so much fun pulling his handlebar mustache....

Look at how tall they are getting... They grow so fast

Well here is the end of it all...

Until Later

Hugs And Kisses

Hi Donna:
Not only were you queen for a day, but you were queen for the whole week!!! That is pretty cool. I love your jewelry and your new camera too. What a special hubby you have. The family dinner looks so good, especially the cake.
The twins are just adorable. Now you need to take a bunch more pictures of them with your new camera.
