Happy Birthday To Me...I'm Old as Can Be!

seekingadviceJanuary 24, 2006

Well, not really, but I've hit that great milestone that puts one out of Approaching Middle Age and into the old-enough-to-join-AARP category (I think). I'm 50 today!

My family threw me a party in Calistoga last weekend (wine country). I decided I ought to sport a rhinestone tiara and scepter :)

Here's a pic of all my kids except eldest dd, whose white dress you can see in the picture above. My son (the one looking delighted) and his girlfriend are behind me, the twins with me, and my 5-year-old on my SIL's lap. 16 family members attended!

How blessed you are to have small children to keep you young (or is it to make you old?)!

I'm 49 now (also with young twins!) and I don't look half as good as you.

Have a great birthday. You are a blessed woman.

Happy Birthday! I, too, cannot believe how wonderful and young you look with twins just slightly older than mine! (you look young even without knowing you have twins.) I know you deserve, and it appears you received, a wonderful birthday celebration!
