Happy Birthday Sweet 16!!!!!

Today is our darling daughter Jess' 16th birthday!!!! Has it been 16 years???? Surely not, she's my 'baby' ... how can she be becoming a young lady already???
But she is, and she's wonderful!!! Happy birthday gorgeous girl!!! This was her cupcake birthday cake last Sunday, tonight we're having IceCream birthday cake ... and on Sunday there's another birthday cake. This girl really know how to stretch out a birthday LOL!!!!!

I got an award last night from the beautiful Kris thanks so much Kris, you've put a big smile on my face :o)!!
The meaning of this award:
This blog invests and believes in Proximity- nearness in space, time and relationships.
These blogs are exceedingly charming.
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends .
They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizement!
Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut ,even more friendships are propagated.
Please give more attention to these writers!

And I'm supposed to pass this award on to 8 fellow bloggers, to include the above text in their blog. So ..... I'm choosing Jeanette and Julie who I met through my JoyPatch business and have shared many emails with and become good friends with; Milah who has often got fabulous family history stories on her blog, love it; Maria , my 'mortal' in the Stitcher's Angel swap - I'll be visiting in 2010!!! Dawn - we did a Christmas swap last year and have shared some fun emails AND we're doing it again next Christmas!!! Julia, one of the many ladies I'm enjoying making the hexagon quilts with at The Great Hexagon Quilt-along; Laila, who was my Stitcher's Angel last year and made me some beautiful gifts; and lastly Cheryl because I love her new free Veranda Veiws BOM that she's so kindly doing for us all AND I've also just joined her PIF :o).
As I look through my sidebar though, I realise you're all deserving of this award :o)!!!!! I love to read all of your blogs!!!

That's all for now.....
Take care

Happy Birthday Jessica!

Joy, Thank you for nominating me for this blogging award. I'm truly humbled. Now the hard part is picking 8 deserving bloggers to pass it on....only eight! I don't think I will be able to sleep tonight trying to narrow it down:D

Sharon said...

Hi, Joy!! I just popped over from Milah's back porch and I absolutely LOVE your blog!! I'm so glad to have found you. I'll be coming back often and I'm going to have a lot of fun with your ideas. I hope you don't mind but I'm putting you on my list of blogs to follow. I'll see you soon. Oh, forgot to tell you, my daughter is also named Joy. Jessica is indeed a beautiful girl and it sounds like she really enjoyed that sweet 16. Driving is next? Hold onto your heart! Till next time, God bless. Sharon
