Like I need an excuse to eat cake...

I didn't feel any different when I woke up this morning, but according to the calender I'm now 42.
*Sigh*


Funny..... this one kinda crept up on me. Do birthdays get sneakier the more you have of them? Hmmm...
Oh well, there aren't any wrinkles a little piece of cake won't smooth over.   :)

I'll be spending the day drying some apples and cleaning up my sewing room... as for a celebration, that will have to wait until tomorrow- Hubby is taking off from work and we're taking a little day trip with Lily to enjoy the fall colors and do some shopping along the way.

Speaking of Lily, I think she's finally recovered from her Birthday celebration a couple of weekends ago... Here is a picture of her right before her big night began-


The tiara didn't even make it to the car, but once we got into town she had a couple of chicken nuggets from Chik-Fil-A, her favorite restaurant.... (okay, actually it's mine but I'm pretty sure she likes it too...)
And gots lots of love and affection from everybody in the pet store plus two new toys, so it was a pretty big night for a 1-year-old.







I'll be back next week- have a great weekend, everybody!

    Happy, happy birthday Baby!
    Hope you could hear me singing from Iowa. Also hope Ronnie didn't hear me killing one his songs.

  33. A very Happy but belated Birthday wish Paula, I hope you enjoyed the special day with your dh and Lily. As far as birthdays getting sneakier as you get older, yes, they do, so much so that they seem to multiply twice as fast
    I adore Lily, she can visit me anytime.
