123rd Carnival of Genealogy :: Gonna Have a Birthday Party

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Our great hostess of the Carnival of Genealogy, Jasia, of Creative Gene, is having a birthday in November.  Her challenge for this Carnival is:

The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: A Birthday Party! Yep, we're having a birthday party here at the COG and you're all invited! Whose birthday is it? Mine. :-) November is the month of my birthday and in honor of me I'd like to invite you to share a birthday story.

Your story can be about a birthday party you hosted or was held for you. It can be a tribute to someone on your family tree who has a November birthday. Or, it can be a fantasy about your dream birthday! 

I went checking, not a lot of birthday party photos on the computer. Well, hmmmpphhh.  I had just a few parties, well, I can only remember a few.  I found a few photos of birthdays from my kids.  A few of Man, his first and second birthday photos were pretty cute.  Yes, I blogged them, birthday number one is here, and that second birthday is here.  Alas, nothing struck me as blog worthy, or I had used it already, so, I decided, that since Jasia was having a birthday, I would  gather a few items and just throw her a party.

So, Jasia, Let's Parteeeeeee!!

Here are some balloons to decorate with:

Later in the evening we will have some fireworks:

MUST have a hat!  (Thank you to our lovely model, Son # 3.)

And, of course, a cake (actually I borrowed this from Son # 2's fourth birthday party).  We all love a carousel  right?  I'll fight ya for the giraffe looking creature, I have never ridden a giraffe before!  Or maybe that is a funny looking long necked horse?

Here is your present, sure hope you like it:

And, last, but, NOT least, a little bubbly to wash it all down:

Happy Birthday Jasia!

Thank you, Carol, for the wonderful birthday surprise! I can't tell you what this means to me but just know that it brought both a smile and a tear to my face. Thank you, dear friend!

Carol, what a neat idea --- Just throw your own BDay party for Jasia!! Makes us all smile.

LOL. What a lovely birthday tribute to Ms. Jasia! Son #2 was a good sport to wear that hat, and I must say your husband was pretty cute back in the day...
