Oh my goodness! How do you catch up on a month of Friday blessing lists?
1. I’ll start with this sweet little birthday boy.
A teddy bear party theme with a sweet teddy bear cake, decorated beautifully by Dorothy.
and Oscar enjoyed every bite!
Happy First Birthday Oscar! ❤
2. My “baby boy” turned 27 – now that’s a little hard for me to grasp 🙂
Sweet smile with his baby nephew, Isaiah.
(another birthday – James and Nora’s Golden Doodle pup, “Walter” had his first birthday on April 1st. 🙂 )
3. I also celebrated a birthday – a sad lack of pictures though. This is what happens when the photographer is the birthday girl 🙂 But I was royally treated with lots of birthday love, plus Chinese take-out, DQ ice-cream cake, music, flowers and phone calls from my away from home loved ones. A perfectly lovely day!
4. And then Josie turned 3!
She was thrilled with her “Kitty-cat” birthday cake – she leaned over, gave her mummy a big hug, and said “Thank you so much for my cake Mommy and Daddy!” Made my heart melt.
And what a cute cake! Both Dorothy and Kathleen created such lovely birthday cakes. I need to take some decorating lessons from them.
Little Josie-girl ~ it’s hard to believe you’re three! Happy Birthday sweetheart! ❤
5. Now . . . I could talk about snow.
and how we almost broke the all time high record for snowfall kept on the Island.
(full disclosure – there is a fallen spruce tree underneath that pile and it’s also where Roger shovelled the snow off the deck. So perhaps it wouldn’t be quite that high)
But I, like every other Islander, am sick of snow. It’s fine in winter and I like it then. But in spring?? No thank you. But I mention it because the blog is for memories right? And I’m sure when we’re very old and grey, we’ll say “Remember the winter of 2015?”
But right now I want to think of spring and snow melting and sunshine and warmth and birds singing and flowers and kayaking!
Yes that’s open water! I’m hoping to be out there very soon!
Happy, happy sigh!
Happy Friday to you – thanks so much for visiting! I hope your blessing list is too long to count!
