Happy Birthday Susan

Last week was a week of celebrations. First we started off with a birthday party for Susan.

Tuesday was the most frigid day of this fall. Wind chill was brutal and we were afraid some of the ladies would rather stay home in their jammies.

Deborah and I had a lovely young assistant, Deborah's granddaughter, Olivia. She is home schooled and was visiting her grandmother that day. She was so sweet in greeting the ladies, hanging up coats and  doing anything we asked of her. We all need an Olivia.

Marvin came to help set up tables and he took this lovely group photo.

Susan is such a great friend that even the weather could not keep the ladies away.

The fire was much needed!

Finger Foods.

The gift table.

A yummy cake surrounded with pictures of Susan through the years.

We used this book as a guest register. Each lady signed her best wishes on the inside cover. I told Susan that 70 is the new 50!

I heard a radio program once that said I believe around age 68 we started living some of our best years. I can't remember all the points, but less worked over things, grateful, etc. That is such a good picture of you and Marvin. I love your top. Really pretty on you!
