It's All About JoJo...A Happy Birthday Wiggly Party...And Some Much Needed Respite...

Last weekend we had a very special occassion at this house...JoJo's Birthday!!! She waits all year for this...as she does all occassions and enjoys every moment of every occassion...and she will cheers to that person as well quite a few days before the special day...especially hers!!! A pic of the teddy I saw at last week's Craft Fair and could not resist purchasing...almost as if she spoke to me...I was eyeing her off and the Sales Assistant said...is she speaking to you? That does it I thought...she must be destined for us...!!!

JoJo has named her Jess!!!

Oops...out of order here...

This delightful owl was sent to JoJo all the way from Ireland by Micki and has been named the Harry Potter Owl!!!

Thank you so much Micki for the Harry Potter Owl!!!

and what party could be without sweets!!!

We all had a beautiful day celebrating!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR JOJO!!!



Meanwhile...this weekend we are celebrating another occassion!!!

JoJo is away on a little holiday for 3 nights and 3 days...

We are going to be a couple for that time...and do what some people do on weekends...



Enjoy a whole movie without interruption...

Do what we want...when we want...

Have a break from bedtime and bathtime...

Go for a beachwalk when we want...

Enjoy some freedom from caring...

And keep adult hours...not 9-3pm..

We have already started our break...

But I'm sure we will miss our girl!!!

Hello Dzintra and hubby, enjoy your three days of R&R. I just love JoJo's cake looks like she had fun I especially loved the teddy and owl she looks so sweet in that photo of her and her teddy. Yes they do talk don't they. I remember having tea party's and I am sure those dolls talked back to me. Enjoy.p.s. lovely music.

Happy Birthday JoJo, that birthday cake looks so cool.

I'm glad that you have had a weekend together, in any family a couple needs time to be themselves together, alone. Hope it was wonderful and peaceful.

You asked where is 'Alice's Aunt'? My Twilight blog is still in the same place as always.

And I'm showing 'Alice's' look, from "New Moon." And I'm not all that pleased with it, btw.
