Jen....she's beautiful!!!! What a super celebration. Is she your oldest grandchild? I ask 'cause my oldest is now 19 and it's so hard to believe when I can remember just yesterday I was holding him in my arms as a babe. I loved the sharing of such a wonderful time with your family.

Let's not mention the gas prices tho! Lordy.

And I love your "Cheers \_/\_/\_/"... Dang cute.

Jeanette, you are on the road again all the time!
And if it isn't that, then it's party time!
Quite a life.


I sang the best I could, now Alyce, please listen. You are a very pretty girl. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALYCE one more time!
Since we get to talk grandkids, I soom will be posting about one of mine (she graduated from college with two degrees, a masters and a bachelors).
My four grandkids range in age from 29 down to ten.

Thanks, Jen, for letting me tell about them. And I know you sure do enjoy watching yours grow and grow up.

Happy Birthday to the birthday girl! She's gorgeous, Jen. :o)

I thought our gas prices were high at nearly $4 a gallon, but at $1.53 a liter that puts yours over $5 a gallon! And the price just keeps going up. :-(

Have a good week, Jen.

Love and hugs,

O yeah I knew I'd left SOMETHING out: petrol/gas. Wow is it really that cheap by you???

Dielsel is £2 a LITRE here... petrol not much cheaper. Diesel for some reason's gone massively up nobody quite knows why but fuel prices are SOARING in this country... as is basic food and just about everything else... our economy here's totally done in... I'm afraid... :-<...

Hi Jen, Looks like another great party, you all seem to know how to enjoy yourselves. That Alyce is certainly a pretty girl who most people would love to live next door too.

What a wonderful party.
Your granddaughter is just beautiful! Every time I read about the price of gas overseas, I know I should count my blessings on what it is here. At your prices it would cost us about $150 to fill our tank!!
(hope your car gets great mileage!!)

handkerchiefs and for your comments.
I hope you are well and over the bug

Hi Jan, great party and you have a beautiful family. I see that you have the same problem that we do here in the states, high gas prices.

Oh to be 21 again. Naaaah, once was enough. :) Happy birthday to your sweet Alyce. I wish all good things ahead for her.

Happy belated Birthday to Alyce! Such a beautiful granddaughter you have, she's gorgeous! I so enjoyed looking at all the pictures and one can tell the fun that was being had by all. You are so lucky to have so many family members near you:-)

Isn't it awful how much the price of gas keeps going up? You're paying even more than us...we're at $1.34 a liter right now.

When you get a chance, come over to my blog to enter my giveaway:-) xoxo

I admire how your family makes it a point to get together on special occasions like birthdays. Belated Happy Birthday to your lovely granddaughter Alyces. A sweet name for a pretty young girl. Twenty one is a sweet age and hope she continues to enjoy the best that life brings.

Such a nice family get-together and your Alyce is beautiful.

About the spiders in my garden: we only have about 2 kinds of spiders that are poisonous here in the USA . . so we don't kill the
good spiders that work in the garden to eat other "bad bugs."

Have a good weekend dear!
