Happy Fri-Yay Funday Friends!

I am sooooo excited to share these decorations with you that my daughter made for all of the celebrations we’ve had lately and there are more to come. Always right?! We’re just done with Valentine’s Day and the chocolate bunnies are already in stores for Easter if you can stand it.

This year is a milestone year for our family as we celebrate 3 generations and a total of 5 grandparents birthdays. 65 (no not me! Remember, I’m 16 with 49 years of experience) 🀣, my sister in law is right behind me, my mom will be 85, My Dad 88, My Step Dad just turned 88, My Dad’s significant other, 90 and my FIL turned 95 last week. WOW! And then there’s our baby who will be 30 in June.

I’ve always made a big deal about birthdays which I got from none other than my mother. I make a point to celebrate them because it’s a chance to pause, come together and honor another day we are blessed to be here on earth. However, I’m off my game this past year with the pandemic and the new normal has taken it’s toll and I have become much more simple and busy with technology (my fav…hahahahaha). So, if I forgot to send you a card, or wish you a happy birthday this year, Happy Belated Birthday, I’m really so sorry!

With that, comes the shock of the younger generation and surprise of them stepping up and digging in to keep traditions alive. YAY!!!!! I couldn’t be happier and more proud of my kids!

I promised Vani, at Story time with Shivani that I would share this new die cut machine, The Cricut, my daughter is using to create all of these amazing decorations. So here you go Vani, I hope you like it. Do visit her blog and follow her. She has fun stories, great messages, will always make you laugh and she is an amazing supportive follower.

If you have to go, scroll all the way down to the bottom of my post (YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THESE), to see my AMAZING GLASSES SHE MADE ME. YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THEM AND YOU MIGHT EVEN WANT TO ORDER SOME. THEY ARE SO RELATABLE TO US CRAZY BLOGGERS. WHO US? 🀣🀣🀣

But of course; first a poem called…….

I Pass The Baton

I pass the baton to my daughter who has surpassed me
My once bought decorations I hung with pride
Are crafted by my oldest with her very own cricut die cut machine
She programs and designs cutting out of wood, paper, and plastic
From signs, labels to pins, banners, no two the same
Talented, unique and finely crafted 
I’m happy to say she puts me to shame 
Yes, I’ve been replaced I’m happy to say!
I pass the baton to my daughter who has surpassed me
These decorations are amazing like her in every way!

And what better than to love and be loved! Notice the intricacy of this over lay design

OK, READY FOR THE GLASSES?!!!!! CHECK THESE OUT!

I always wished I had a sister but my sister in law (who made this bag) and my soul sisters (you know who you are) are gifts to my heart and I am everything because of you.

Thanks soooo much Renee and to all of you for reading! However you celebrate your Friday and weekend make sure to take time to enjoy the gifts of the day that come your way. Take some time to enjoy your special gifts, hold yourself lightly and lovingly no matter what is going on and know you are LOVE!

Such talent. I love the one about “now I drink alone.” Lol. I suppose the good thing about all those birthdays at once is that you don’t forget anyone! Happy Birthday to all, Cindy. And Congrats on the 49 years of experience that got you to Medicare!
