Big Grin Someone wonderful is having her birthday!

I need no diamond, pearl or beryl
to assay the worth of knowing Cheryl
is having a very special birthday!

What can we say but what's writ below
about the lovely lady we know
who's having a very special birthday?

So gather your kith, and gather your kin,
the fun and the food and the drink ain't a sin
for Cheryl's very special birthday!

And raise your glasses and make this toast
unto a hostess we love the most,
who's having a very special birthday!

, sweet Cheryl; may we celebrate long, and loud, and hard with you, celebrate everything that makes you special and oh-so-wonderful to all of us. Without you, we would not be here to have the fun that we do, nor the good times, nor the friendships and, most of all, a place that we can call our home and refuge from the world, and a place wherein which we may be ourselves, knowing that we're accepted and cared for, by each other, by your fellow hosts, and by you, because we know you care for us, and we care for you in turn.

Uhmmm... it's already July 20 in your neck of the woods, Ghyle?


On the other hand, when I congratulate her now I can do it twice



Congrats my friend!


And I guess I must say she probably won't react soon because she's still on the road on her way home ...

Happy Birthday!


"We'd like to wish you
A happy birthday
And we hope that all
Your dreams will come true

When you were born
The celebration started
And now that's why we're
Here with you

So now you're older,
A little better
And each day you bring
The world something new

When you were born,
The celebration stated
And now that's why
WE'RE HERE WITH YOU!"

Happy birthday!
(Hope that my isn't too bad...)

Thank you all! I had a lovely day today, back home from my vacation at last!

I've downloaded 492 pictures and 50 videos, which will take quite a while to sort and post online.

Yes, we know. But that's only because she was so busy and with two litte kids you just have not enough time to shoot a satisfying number of pics and vids, C_ris

Well, I suppose that kids do tend to take up a large amount of your time...
