Early Birthday and Valentines Celebration

Yesterday was a fun day as I celebrated an early birthday and Valentine's Day.  My daughter, Norma, and her friend, Randy, came Saturday night and spent the night.  Sunday we went to church.  When we got home they fixed a delicious brunch for me, my mom, my friend Eugene, and my daughter, Dawn. We had omelets, fruit,  cinnamon rolls, and mimosas.  I forgot to take pictures of the food.  They also gave me a beautiful corsage that I wore all day.  Forgot to take a picture of that as well.

We did get some pictures of the girls, mom, and me.  My mom is going to be 95 in March.  She's looking pretty good don't you think?

You can see my friend, Eugene, sleeping in the background.  He has Parkinson's Disease  and his health is declining.

Last evening, Eugene and I went to a Valentine's Dinner put on by the youth at our Church.  They did a beautiful job of decorating and the food was delicious. The kids were dressed in black pants and white shirts and were the servers.   The menu was spinach salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing, warm bread, raspberry ginger ale, lasagna and a vegetable medley, coffee, and either pecan or key lime cheesecake. I forgot my camera and tried taking some pictures with my cell phone.  Sorry for the poor quality as it was so dark.  I'm going to show a couple anyway so you can get the idea of the atmosphere.

All in all it was a very fun day.  I hope you have a fun Valentine's Day as well.

Thanks for stopping by.

I guess given your mother's age you can probably look forward to many, many more birthday celebrations!

Hi Barb, What a beautiful time spent with special people. The celebration and food sounds so good. Happy Birthday to you. Mine is the 28th this month. When is yours.
Prayers for Eugene. My dad had Parkinson's too. He did not pass with it though, but I understand the decline.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and enjoy.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
