Apparently, Molly made every picture taken that night

Waiting for the guest of honor....

(Dad is currently saying..."Hey Pat,look who is here." He still has no clue)

Moment of recognition!

Saying hello to his fans.

President of Party Planning and a member of the Board

Listening to some GREAT stories !

One guest decided to return a drill bit that he borrowed when he and his family moved in next door to my parents in 1982.


(he was ready to eat cake)

The entire family!

Dad and his closest friends!

All in all, I would say we DEFINITELY pulled one over on him!

I love these.....


I realize that it was close to 70 degrees today! 

But this beautiful weather can't fool me! 

As always, we will have another cold snap! 

And when it hits, I want these fancy gloves!  The textured material on the index finger and thumb even let me navigate touch-screen devices'.

Have a great weekend!

Once upon a time,

this was my kitchen.

It wasn't pretty.
And looking at it made me sad.

So one day, I bought some pretty fabric as inspiration and convinced J to give this dreary-yellow room a LITTLE face lift.


Four months, gallons among gallons of paint and a few sewing disasters later, TAA-DA!

Sorry....someone wanted a close up!

To say the least, I am very pleased with the results!
