101st Birthday Celebration & Update!

Nannie's Birthday was amazing! All of her 4 great grandchildren where present! There were 2 cakes 1 chocolate and 1 vanilla both decorated "Happy 101st Birthday Nannie" She had flowers delivered to her from Hawaii, red antirrhinums and an orchid lei for her to wear! It was a day of lots of giggles and FUN!
Nannie was overwhelmed with JOY!!! It was my sister's birthday also and yes we sang to her Happy Birthday too!
Thank you all very much for Nannies Birthday Happy wishes!
I did tell Nannie and she asked me to tell you "Please send them my regards and tell them I say Thank you!" That's straight from Nannie to YOU!
 One of our Birthday girls!

 Everyone was gathered in front of me and my cousin holding the 2 cakes taking photos. 
OH YES Nannie had her own paparazzi!


Here we were laughing because we couldn't believe how non shy my little cousins were. In this photo it was explained to me and that Nannie and I had been Bopped!!! I asked whats Bopped??? It's when a person jumps up in front as the photo is taken - LOL!!! The things we learn from children - LOL!

 Okay you know how at parties some people play games? Well when you turn 101yrs old you get to 
   PAN FOR GOLD!! Who knew a crochet hook was also a great tool for panning for gold!! 
Yep that was all Nannies idea.

 And look at what Nannie found. That's a real gold nugget!

 And last is an update on my Elizabeth pincushion doll by GPA. I have the flower vine all stitched and am working on the flowers right now. There's another band that will go above the flowers - not there yet!


Hope everyone got to see some fireworks. We sure did on Friday night. This year it was held at the fairgrounds and not on the river. Thank you so much for your visit.
With love and appreciation - Annette
