It's that time again! Time for Six Word Saturday! Birthday time!



Here are my Six Words:

Another Birthday Has Come And Gone!
 


If you want to join in with your Six Words Post just click on the link at the top of this post and join in the fun!

We went to Kansas City on my 64th birthday, August 19th, to celebrate with our middle daughter Lynnette and her husband Kyle, and their 6 kids whose ages are nearly 24, down to age 7.  The 7 year old...(the baby of the family), Harrison, (blue shirt) turned 7 in July, so we also celebrated his birthday, and our grandson Jonas, (orange shirt) turns 11 tomorrow so we did his too.  It was fun to spend this special time together!

 We had fun playing games together!
 Abigail  (21) She isn't in these pictures, so I added one of her.  She is such a sweetheart!

 Jared 24 (on Sept. 12th) and his sweet momma Lynnette!


We used to get our whole family together for almost every birthday so we could celebrate together, but since this daughter and family have moved three hours away, we aren't able to do that very much these days.  Our oldest daughter Lisa, and her husband Brad, and daughter Bailey were on their way home from their vacation in Estes Park Colorado.  We went there with them last year and it was so much fun!  



These are the vacationers who couldn't be with us!  Lisa, Brad and Bailey...and below are Brad and Bailey, (21) on their trail ride in Estes Park.





Our youngest daughter Lonna (picture below), was working so she couldn't join us either.  Her oldest son, William was headed to Colorado with some friends, (first road trip in his new '07 Impala.)  And the other three kids, Julia, (16) Adelynn, (15 in Sept.) and Caleb (17) had school and work since it was during the week.  We missed each of them.


Will took his '07 Impala on his first road trip to Colorado to a Red Rocks Concert


Jonas singing Happy Birthday to Grandma!  Lynnette made me an eggless, gluten-free cheesecake and it was so good!



This was our first road trip in my husband John's '08 Cadillac!  He just got it so we wanted to take it...and it rode really nice!  (He has driven a mini-van for so many years, so I was happy that he could get something that he likes.


These are the pretty flowers John bought me for my birthday!  I love flowers!  Aren't they pretty?  (He let me pick them out!)

All-in-all,  I would say it was a wonderful birthday this year...and it made turning 64 not so bad after all!!!

Have a great Saturday everyone!

Oh sweet friend...thank you so much for such a wonderful note. It meant more to me than I can say. I've missed you all so much and so appreciate you all giving me time to grieve the loss of my beloved daddy. I'm just heartbroken over his death and all that surrounded it. I'll share more as I can...there is a huge story there.

You look as beautiful as ever. Happy Birthday to you. I hope you do come this way and if you do we just MUST meet up for lunch. I would love to show you around and brag on you. Maybe have you meet my hubby and momma.

OK...just know I still adore you. Always will.

Love, Rebecca
