Been Busy Celebrating

Sunday, we had two birthdays in the house; mine and Vinnie’s. I don’t want to tell you have many turns around the sun I have seen, though many of you already have a pretty good idea. In dog years, Vinnie is quickly catching up to me, but I don’t like to count in dog years, so in my eyes he is still and always will be, my big baby.

We went out to brunch at EAT! Food and Drink; It’s Time To EAT!Again Video #16 – Eat at EAT! Food & Drink on Sunday morning with friends Jonathan, Priscilla and Laura, and then when we came home, my friend Suzanne came over to help me celebrate as well. The celebrations continued on through yesterday as well, when Janet and Bob came over for some wine and nibblies.

It’s always a celebration when getting together with loved ones, both friends and family, but it makes birthdays even better when friends and family are they to celebrate with you.

The presents. Both Priscilla and Laura decided I needed to pamper myself, and I could not agree more. Once again, great minds and great friends are thinking alike. πŸ™‚

From Priscilla and Jonathan.

and from Laura.

Suzanne realized I have been out of my element of WATER for far too long, and it is definitely time to get reconnected and rehydrated.

Janet and Bob were appealing more to my connection with food and gave me some gourmet olives. I can’t wait to try those. They look so yummy.

Larry knows my biggest present and the best present was Juni Bug, even though she can be quite the pill. She was an early birthday present. But he also got me some fun little things as well.

Vinnie was not forgotten either. Suzanne brought him a big bag of bully sticks. And he knew these presents on the counter were for him too and was trying to help himself to them before Juneau got to them.

Larry put a bright blue bow on Juni Bug, to match her collar. She kept it on for a good portion of the day, which was pretty surprising. She did find Vinnie’s new toys and decided to help herself anyway. Vinnie is such a good big brother and he didn’t mind sharing his new toys with her.

Mommy and her birthday babies.

Life is good. Celebrate every minute of it, just like it is your birthday. Thank you all for helping to make mine and Vinnie’s day a special one.
