Another One In The Books

Birthday, that is.

Today, I just wanted to share a couple of pictures from my day (Friday).

One of Motor Man’s gifts to me was a cowboy hat. He was so proud that he was able to pull off the surprise.

Another surprise, compliments of Motor Man: a birthday cake with horses.

Do you detect a theme here?

A couple of weeks ago, Marshall saw a Holly Hobbie image on a 1970’s web-site, and remembered that I had stitched a picture of this many years ago (actually before he was born). So he made a 3D shadowbox of the design for me.

It’s nearly impossible to get a good picture of anything in a frame, but try to ignore the reflections, and just look at this detail.

The three of us had a nice dinner, and after we were all home, safe and sound, a thunderstorm gave us a much needed two inches of rain.

And then…there was a gorgeous sunset.

There were other celebrations last week and more to come this week.

Family and friends sure make getting older more fun.
