Blogidays December 19 - birthday fun

Hello everyone, 
First I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments about my granddaughter’s project.  She was on the front page of our newspaper today and now has more orders for ornaments - several of them were from people with families that have been through Covid and want the ornaments to commemorate what they went through in 2020.  In fact she has so many more ornaments to make,  I’m going to help her tomorrow.  
I’m still amazed how much she accomplished and how many people it has made happy ❤️
And thank you all for the loving comments about her 

Today we celebrated my birthday and it’s been a great day.
I went to see my parents first thing and my mom crocheted this adorable snowman for me.  
I talked to or saw all my grandchildren and children today.  
We ordered Panera catering for our lunch -salads, soups, baguettes, sandwiches and desserts.  It was delicious and there was so much, we had it for supper and will have it tomorrow and maybe Monday too.  (I know everyone is not a fan of leftovers but we are) 
My children gave me some wonderful scented candles, wax melts, potpourri and  hand lotions.  
And my husband gave me a beautiful pearl necklace. 

I took a few more photos at my parents retirement home.  

Both of these smaller trees have lighted gifts around the base.  They look really good in person.  

If y’all have read my blog any length of time,  you know I like to grow succulents. 
I saw this mini succulent that hangs on a car mirror on Mercari and it may be cute buts it’s ridiculous and would most likely block a lot of the drivers vision.  
But it is really cute 😊

Good night everyone. 
Hope you all have a good day

Happy birthday!
The snowman is so cute.
Your panera catering sounds delicious and not having to cook for a day or two is wonderful too.
I can see that pot flying around if you have to brake suddenly.

Happy (belated) birthday! I love the snowman your Mom made! I see where you get your crafty talents!

Happy Birthday!

Your mom did a fabulous job on the snowman. I love it.

I agree about the hanging plant but it sure would be cute hanging in my kitchen window.

We had a lovely day here yesterday with our family and had enough food to send some home with every one of them and have leftovers for supper for six as well and still put some in the freezer! I should have stopped and thought harder about John's suggestion but it seemed such a nice solution to a big meal and cutting down on my own level of tiredness during the holiday season that I didn't reason it out, I guess...In fact, I'm not sure but what they didn't throw in MORE than we ordered because I cannot make it all work out in my mind why we'd have so very much!
Congratulations to Elizabeth's wonderful achievement and kindheartedness.
Also love the succulent but being danger minded all I see is the thing hitting the windshield and shattering it...Though I suppose one would use a plastic pot and not a terracotta one as I imagine.
Merry Christmas dear friend!!

Sounds like you had a super birthday; glad it was everything you hoped for and you were able to share it with loved ones. The snowman is adorable. I am in awe at what your little granddaughter has been able to accomplish; what a sweetheart!
I love Panera. The closest one is about 20 miles away, so it is a real treat when I get to visit there.

I'm glad you had a great birthday! Mine is the 12th and sometimes it gets lost in all the holiday hustle. The lighted presents around the little trees are cute!
