After the Party

Thank you all for stopping by for Mom's birthday commentathon for Marg's Pets.  We got 99 comments from both our blog and on Facebook so Mom rounded it up to 100 even.  This means we raised $55. for Marg!!!!  Very appropriate since it was Mom's 55th birthday! Thanks guys.

Mom had a great day.  When she went out to the cat shelter to feed the white kitties Pop had decorated the place with banners and signs with Mom's gifts out there.

The kitties were a bit freaked out with all the decorations.  Some were trying to get into the cabinet. Snowball was hiding under the chair - he is not afraid of the vacuum cleaner but the decorations undid him!  Silly boy.

Pop got mom some fancy chocolates form a local store and a handmade wood heart of recycled materials from the Gallery where Mom works.

She had wanted this heart but came in one day and it was gone - sold.  Pop bought it but no one let on that he had it.  Mom was so upset it was gone and was she surprised that Pop had gotten it for her.  Mom loves art and handmade items from the local area.

Kitty book mark and pen from UK!

She got lots of goodies from friends and coworkers.  Pop took her for a day trip too - to a town they had visited 15 years ago when they were trying to decide where in NC to move to.  It was a cute town but kinda expensive.  They had lunch and drove on a scenic drive past lots of waterfalls!  The road was curvy and narrow with a rock cliff on one side and a huge drop on the other with just a guard rail!  Scary but fun too.

We were all glad they came home safe and sound to be with us.  (W were worried supper was gonna be late)  It was a great day for all and thank you for your part in it!

We're delighted your mom had a wonderful birthday, and raised $55 for Marg too!

And wasn't your pop sneaky, to buy that heart and not let on? We bet that was a fabulous surprise for your mom!

What a great amount you raised for Marg with your commentathon. We love the heart that was made from recycled materials - your dad was sneaky going to buy it when your mom wasn't there but he knew she would love it.
luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
