A PARTY, A RETURN AND PRESENTS ALL AROUND..


Yesterday was my weekly "Blanket Club" meeting with my two cousins. I enjoy this so much for a variety of reasons, the main one being the closeness I feel to them.,,not having siblings and no longer having my parents, they are such a welcome part of my life. We talk about family, what's been going on from week to week....future get togethers, our blankets..etc...it's like having sisters I never had...it's the closeness I felt towards them when I was growing up, before we all got married and had families.
Anyway, yesterday we celebrated my cousin B.A.'s Birthday....we had veggie wraps and homemade blueberry coffeecake for dessert!! Yum!!!
Last night was also the much anticipated arrival home of oldest DD. She was about an hour later arriving than origionally planned, due to delays at the border, but she had a fantastic time!
She brought back T-shirts, hats, key chains for each of us, and she bought me a gorgeous ring!! I will take a photo of it in a separate post. I have not seen her photos yet, apparently there are upwards of 600!!! She has gone off with her boyfriend today, as there is no school for any of the kids, due to an inservice in the entire province. (How lucky is that???)
Once I see her photos, I will ask to "borrow" a couple to post here.
Have a great day everyone!!

Wow! So much to celebrate! Glad your DD is home safe.

And aren't friends just the best? I once read a quote that has resonated with me ever since: "Friends are the family we choose for ourselves."

Sounds like you've chosen well, Marion :)

What a lovely party you had with your friends! Good friends like those are so hard to find. Hold them near to your heart!

I'm glad your daughter returned safe and sound. Did she like the Phantom?
