A Birthday Weekend


Two very special people to me are having birthdays this weekend. First, my great friend, Judy, had a birthday yesterday (Saturday). I talked to her on the phone --since she is visiting her brother and sister-in-law in Virginia this weekend. I love the picture below of Judy---doing what Judy loves to do. She's sitting on her deck (with a fabulous view) at their second home in the mountains of North Carolina. AND---she has that blackberry out doing what she does constantly---writing me (I hope). ha ha......... Happy Birthday, my special friend.





+++++++++++++++++++
AND--------my eldest grandchild is SIXTEEN TODAY..... I cannot believe it. I witnessed this young lady's birth --and it 'couldn't' have been 16 years ago... Mercy me--how time flies. My son and daughter-in-law have dreaded this day for quite some time. Guess why????? She is getting her driver's license... If you live in Texas, stay off the road for awhile... ha ha ha (Just kidding since I'm sure she will be a fantastic driver!!!!)

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Granddaughter of mine. The picture below is of her and her boyfriend all dressed up for Homecoming at their school this Fall. Isn't she a beauty????




Any birthdays in your list of family members or friends this weekend????? Whatever is going on, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Hugs,

Love the color of her dress! What a beautiful young lady!. I will say a prayer for her as she learns to drive - it's not always our kids (grandkids) we have to worry about, but the other crazy drivers on the road!

Peggy said...

what is it with us doing similar posts on the same day???? LOL Your granddaughter is beautiful and I bet will be a fantastic driver. Have a blessed day

Sandra said...

What a stunning young lady!! Time to lock her up and throw away the key!! That's what my son says he's going to do with his two daughters once they are of dating age!!
Good luck to her with the driving!!

Hi Betsy - you really have a beautiful granddaughter (it's all in the genes!!!). Nina, my daughter of 14 says to tell her: "Nice dress!" At their school they only have (informal) socials and (formal) balls. The word "homecoming" is never used. [Afrikaans is our home language, so they are in an (mainly) Afrikaans speaking school, but there is 1 class per grade where all the teaching is in English. My children have English as a 2nd language at school. So - - - if my spelling is wrong, sentence construction strange etc. --- now you know why!!]. My 3rd son is now 17. He can get his "learners" this year, but they must be 18 to get a licence.

Happy Birthday Judy and Betsy's granddaughter. Hope you both get all you want.
Granddaughter, we know what you want and what your parents dread, that freedom bearing drivers license. Carry it with prudence.
