~Happy Birthday JoJo~

Jo Jo has just celebrated her birthday and we had a great day yesterday
By special request a Wiggles Cake for her

She loves a bouquet of flowers

A Happy Birthday Mug was one of the gifts

And a long awaited for pair of Electric Blue Suede boots
I think she has inherited her Mum's shoe fetish LOL.......perhaps I taught her!!!

And JoJo was famous for a day when a dear Blogging mate Shez blogged about her special day (a year long awaited event)
The birthday post is over here

Here is the little decoration Shez sent her

and the back of it

She then hung it on the door handle with the Christmas Decoration Shez made for her!!!
Thank You so much dear are one awesome chick and so thoughtful!!!

We went out for Breakfast to JoJo's favourite place for pancakes
Above is the view looking through the window overlooking Clyde River

Then on to a blown up balloon

After that we dropped her off to 'work', her Day Programme for a few hours
Her Brother came up for overnight and we took him for a Bowl of Coffee

He even brought up a selection of European snow!!!

I even scored a belated Birthday/Mother's Day Gifts in this pink bag

along with some Paris Cushions and a Katie Melua CD

When JoJo arrived home it was a Wiggles Birthday Cake

We then went out for an early dinner so that we could see Bay Theatre Players Production of Annie
And we are taking it easy today
Hope you had a Beautiful Birthday Darling JoJo!!!

And now it will be non-stop as we await Christmas LOL!!!

Happy Weekend Dear Blogging Friends,
Love Dzintra xo

Happy Birthday Jojo, I'm happy you had a lovely time and some great gifts.
I am very jealous of your boots Jojo, good job we are not neighbours, I would come over to borrow them!

Oh Dzintra, I did have to chuckle when I saw your gifts. My elderly Grandfather used to love "Katie Malaria", as he called her :-D

Hi, Dzintra
I'm a little late for JoJo's birthday, but please wish her a 'Happy Birthday' too!
My Ty has a birthday in November, and he is already counting the days until he will be 23! Wow! Time flies!
The cake looks so scrumptious! And all of the birthday goodies look like such fun for JoJo.
I think of you often, it's been a very busy summer here in California.
lots of hugs!
