Another Birthday!

We had a celebration for my hubby on Wednesday, for his 63rd birthday. And yes we had a theme...LOL This year for his main present I got him a ride in the B-25 bomber, "Maid in the Shade" that visited our town over the Labor Day weekend. He was thrilled first with the flight and then with his party. Of course the theme was Airplanes! I found the cutest party ware online and added to it, finding fun items here in town. It is always such a thrill when I see everything come together. Our girls joined us, with first a lovely dinner at a local steakhouse (they even paid the bill, what sweeties!) And then fun and frolic at the house ensued. I always make sure that they have a fun item to play with in their goodie bag and this year it was little LED helicopters. In no time, my gang was out in the street having a ball! 

Presents were given and my girls always give such wonderful gifts. My oldest knows my hubby's love of Pacific Northwest art and picked him up a lovely piece on her recent trip to Seattle. Our youngest, scanned photos of all the past Halloweens with her Daddy and had them made into a book including lots of lovely sentiments about how much it meant to have him be such a big part of her holiday. (He always went out with them on Halloween night and when they got older, he helped them make their costumes) It turned out lovely and our guy had some sniffles going. We ended the evening with our fav cake, songs and wishes and lots of hugs and kisses. It was such a great time! Always, Kit

  9. You and your girls really know how to do a birthday right! I am sure your hubby will remember this special bday for many months to come. No snow here, yet, but I think it won't be long! I am actually looking forward to it after the long, hot summer, but today is a beautiful fall day. Have a great week, Kit!
