Happy Birthday !

Yesterday was my husbands Birthday we had a little party with cake and ice cream for his celebration.

I actually made a totally from scratch chocolate cake for his Birthday. And little Jake had to blow

out the candles. I only put 4 candles on the cake, I left off 50, I didn't want the cake to blow up. He He

 My daughter wrote the most awesome tribute to him on FB, but of course I don't know how to do

all of that linking to FB stuff, rem. me the computer dummy. Well my kids and grandkids adore him.

I am proud of the father and pappy that he is, he never ages, and age doesn't bother him one bit,

He will just say, "Well I am just glad that I made it this far"!

Happy Birthday Ronnie!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
