The Big 6 - 0 !

The moment of surprise.  Took me a moment to realize what in the world was going on!

I was just taking it all in and trying to not cry!

Me? Sixty?  How and when did that happen? My family made it the best day ever.It started out with Bob and I at Amelies, a really cool French bakery in Charlotte's arts' district.  We then hit a couple of furniture consignment shops and on to Ikea.  Now, that's a good husband! That's where I got my present, but I'll save that for another post.  The plan was to meet our kids at a nice restaurant in Mooresville.  I knew the hostess and we chatted all the way up the stairs to join the kids.  I turn the corner and there was a big "SURPRISE" shouted out by 8 of my favorite people. What a bunch of sneaks - I had absolutely no idea.  And what a great evening. Lots of laughter and fun.

And here we are my husband and I and our two great kids. They really pulled this one off. 
 I am so very blessed!

Happy Belated Birthday, Joyce! That is so funny you went to Amelies; my son loves to hang out there (I think in the wee hours of the morning!) Hugs!
