My beautiful daughters and thoughtful husband planned a surprise party for my 50th last November unbeknowns to me and I only found out on the morning of the arrival of about 25 relatives from New Zealand, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney that they were coming to stay and eat.
I grabbed everything off my
craft dining table and threw it on the side table and they have stayed there to this day~sad I know~but I only had time to do that as I had to get out of bed on the one day I wanted to sleep in and go to the airport for the day of shuttling back and forth to pick up the relatives.
Here is my gorgeous Emma
My gorgeous Keira
I just happen to have this pumpkin and
didn't know what to do with it,
everyone got stuck into it with a carving knife
and this is what they did to it~
So I guess no pumpkin soup or pumpkin pie!!!
My family know I love ELVIS so they bought an
Elvis wig and each one tried it out.
This is Emma and my brother Ian
another brother Lawrence and his then girlfriend Mere
Hubby Michael and Emma
Then the party started to get heavy, not sure what they were skulling but because I don't drink I don't own any shot glasses so they discovered my mini beaker and used that instead

P.S.. they still can't get me to drink and never will~no reason whatsoever~ I just can't stand to drink liquor
It's only a year later than I can bear to
celebrate my half century LOL
and look back and laugh.
