My mom turns 60!

Before I get in to the fact that my mom turned 60 this weekend (I have to say it a million times b/c she hates the fact that everyone harped on the fact she was turning 60!)..I have to introduce Hemi's sister! I got to keep Hemi and Bella last week. Everyone knows and loves Hemi but meet Isabella! She is really sweet and smiles!!! We had a lot of fun with her! She even got a turn on the stack of beds during vacuum time (in the sunshine, no less!)
She has the sweetest face!
Then we went to my parents' house for the weekend. My mom turned 60 if I hadn't mentioned that already. ;-) I don't know if you remember, but my parents were building a sunroom the last time I was there..well it is finished and quite lovely! We spent a lot of time in it! It will be great once the weather warms up and the pool is open!
Mom and I took advantage (on her 60th birthday) of the warm weather and took the mini horses out for a walk. This of course enraged Mac (my sister's thoroughbred). But his ire made for a great photo op!
And I finally got to meet Boone (I have given a lot of blog time to my other neice and nephew..he will get his fair share!) He is much cuter now..and yes I held him. I even carried him around at the party so my mom could show him off while getting hugs and stuff. He was sleeping. ;-)
Don't get any ideas..for some reason this new addition to my family has sent a ripple through everyone that I am next...pfft...he's cute but so are lion cubs and I don't want one of those either! to the festivities. My mom turned 60 and we had a big party for her at a local restaurant. We thought only 30 people were coming..b/c my dad said so. We learned quickly why you don't tend to leave things like details to men...43 people showed up. The restaurant was great..rearranged the room, ignored something called a Fire Code and worked with us! We had a great time! My mom opening gifts..we got her a charm braceletThe cake..for those of you that don't know she drives a Mazda Miata with ToplezSr on the fits. Happy Birthday, Mom!!

Sounds like Mom had a great birthday. How is it that when a sibling or someone you know or even a stranger with a baby walks near you, everyone you know thinks "you're next"? It's so unfair. Men don't get this type of treatment. Boone is very cute.

Happy 60th, Sue!!! I hope to make it there some day :) How many greyhounds can you fit in a Miata?

After three human nieces and a nephew later, I think our family has come to grips with more greyhounds as their grandchildren/nephews/nieces.

I'm sure Hemi is happy to finally have a sister. Isabella looks like a real cutie pie!

i got the "you're next" bit until i countered with "due to a side effect from surgery, mark's impotent." i wait for the uncomfy and embarrassed looks to firmly set in, then i add, "they never tell you that with vasectomies."

yes, i love kids. i taught and loved it. i love OTHER PEOPLE'S kids. this round the clock stuff? fergiddit. get them wired and send them home. that's my philosophy.
crazy auntie katy.

nice sunroom. hey, is your mom 60?

soooo - is your mom 60?

My friends have stopped asking when I am next. They know better than that now as I run sobbing from the room screaming 'stop reminding me that I am barren' - that shuts them up real fast lolol!

Boone is pretty cute though!
