Hi, Everyone!
 
Happy May Day!
 
 Rabbit, Rabbit! (Did you say it?)...:^)
 
I know, it's almost over...
 
It's the thought that counts, though, right?

I'm thinking my Fairy Village needs a Maypole...
 
Fairies should be able to use one year-round, don't you think?

Yesterday, April 30th, was my oldest son Mark's birthday...
 
He is older than I think of myself being!

Daughter Katie had a good idea...we could celebrate by all

 going to see Jurassic Park in 3-D...
 
We did, and it was so much fun!

(Before we left, though, we had cupcakes with little dinosaurs on them ~ :^)
 
Daughter Mandy came down from St. Charles...
 
(That was supposed to be a surprise, but I slipped...) ~
 
We were in an almost-empty theatre ~

So it was almost like a private showing...

Mandy said that in our 3-D glasses, we looked like this character, Dr. Malcolm...

My "delightfully tacky, yet unrefined" gift to Mark...

(One whole dollar from Dollar Tree...)

He said it would be velcroed to the dash of his truck today...;^)

Have a great Thursday, all!

More soon!

Love,

  5. What a delightful Post!
    All day yesterday i greeted people with ,"Happy May!"

    people are unaccustomed to that specific greeting - but quite used to my JOY - so, i got loads of smiles in return . .

    Your blog is the "cherry on top" -
    I thank you.
    love & love,

  7. Oh Anne, what a great gift to your son.. If he is anything like mine, he would have got such a kick out of the tacky yet wonderful gift from the dollar tree.. Besides, the real gift was spending time with you, I am sure. So glad you enjoyed your day.

    Thank you so much for coming over and meeting little Gus and leaving such a sweet note... So happy you enjoyed him.
    fondly,
    Penny

  12. Happy Belated Birthday to your son. I love the cupcake and the dinosaurs theme was a great idea.
    It must have been very special to all view Jurassic Park in three-D glasses. What a great idea.

    Those vintage post cards looks like they were watercolor paintings. So soft.

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I'm so glad you visited.

    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs,
    JB

  13. It sounds like a fun birthday! I laughed when you said your son is older than you feel! My husband and I always say, 'How can our children be older than us now?' (All in their 30's) Love the hula girl gift, too! xx
