Day 3 was a Special Day of Celebration

Friday was an extra special day! I mean Wow is it really possible that another year has flown by? 

Well I guess so because Pamela turned 25!  
Isn't she cute? She was 9 months old in this picture. We used to celebrate her birthday and then mine when she was younger but in the last 3-4 years we have been celebrating together if we can. 

It seems like yesterday when I
drove her to her1st day of kindergarten @ St Rose of Lima.

The days, months, the years seemed to fly by and she was graduating from the 5th grade and it was time to start a new phase of her life, public middle school.  
She's so silly

She had her trials and tribulations like any young person growing up. Self image and self confidence but she has always seemed to handle herself with a maturity beyond her years. She's such a little devil. lol

….And here we are! Wow 25!
So Pamela always remember
“you is kind, you is smart and you is IM – POR – TANT”.

(¯♥’♫♪• HAPPY BIRTHDAY 25th PAMELA•♫♪’♥¯)
Of course I'll continue to celebrate because my birthday isn't really until Monday. 
 Here’s a few more peeks at what I saw……
Deborah shows off her Blue Ribbon (1st)

Friday I went back to the Guild Quilt Show to photograph more quilts and whatever else hit my fancy.  So many pretty quilts, so many vendors, so many activities.  And yes for me this is celebrating.    
I was surrounded by quilts, fabric, other quilty things, friends and lots of talented people. And I was off work. Hehe

It was hard to decide which one to show here....


 I even got to go to lunch with my friend Karen who works at the Berry Center. That was a first.  We caught up on all the latest in that 30 something minutes.

Whoops time was flying by and I needed to leave to pick up Pamela at the house so we can go out to eat to celebrate our birthdays together. I’m late as usual…….
To make things easier on Dad we have one birthday dinner celebration….
I got home, Pam jumped in the car and we headed toThe Taste of Texas.
Yum!!! The food was so good. Of course we all had big juicy steaks that cut like butter. Oops meat on Friday. I promise to do better the rest of Lent but you can’t go to the Taste of Texas and not eat red meat. We ended dinner with tasty desserts. Our waiter gave us each a choice of desserts. Pam had the apple dumplin with cinnamon ice cream and I had a big slice of key lime pie. They were sinful. David chose to help us eat our desserts. We were in Heaven and soooo full by the time we were done. 
We opened our birthday cards from David and found money and gift certificates for a massage at our favorite place… 'Waiting to Exhale'… Ahhhh can’t wait. And he bought us some rodeo tickets to REBA. Yee Haw. David is/was very good to us. Thanks Honey!! Oh and we got some gift certificates to eat at 'Tea for Two' who has awesome jalapeno chicken salad.

After all that food we went home and curled up on the couch and just vegged. So ends our day of celebration. But there’s tomorrow….!

So Until next Blog………."Promise me you’ll always remember: you’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” ~Christopher Robin (to Pooh)
