Birthday bash!

This was the calm before the crowd arrived.  Amy kindly used a shower chair, rather than a potty chair, for the birthday gal’s place of honor!


Haley was VERY surprised (or so she seemed!).  Logan did a great job pulling it all together with his assistant sister-in-law:


Amy found lots of old photos to decorate the table:




And of course there was cake (and Key Lime pie):


And lots of gag gifts, in addition to some very good stuff:


It was a mighty fine evening with family and friends…the very best of folks to celebrate with, of course! 

How blessed we all are.

Haley, the next 40 will fly by.  I know.  Life is grand, y’all!  Enjoy every minute of it.

It was a wonderful time!!! Thanks for taking pictures- and for everything else! I should have brought my laptop over to download them. Maybe after the band concert tomorrow?
