Great success

The quilt show was a huge success... and I am extremely grateful for the help I received from the team of volunteers. The tickets on the quilt I donated sold well; bringing in over $3000.00 the winner is ???? to be announced this evening at our Church bazaar...

The show closed at 4:00pm on Friday and then I was off to celebrate a very special birthday...

My hubby turns 65 today! In lieu of all the things happening I decided to keep the celebrations a bit quiet so I booked a room at famous restaurant and had them do the cooking. Yummy!

Miss Émilie was there too

The only thing hubby knew was that him and I were going out to dinner...

Timmy and Yvelle our oldest daughter

Second daughter Liette and David and Miss Émilie

Grand-daughter Amy and friend Michel

Son Adrien and his wife Monique

who celebrate their first wedding anniversary on the same day.. Aug 8th

Gerald comes from a family of 15 children.. and he still has 13 siblings

They could not all come, but a few made it to surprise him.

This summer has been very eventful and there has been a lot of curves in our normal routine. I do hope to get back some normalcy and get back to sewing; always remembering to be grateful for the little things I take for granted...

And not forgetting to be thankful for the gifts God so graciously has given me..
