July Celebrations

July is a month of celebrations.

July 7 - Miranda's birthday (Miranda is my son's girlfriend)

July 8 - Harold's birthday (Harold is my husband)

The picture above was taken last Sunday on our deck as we celebrated Harold and Miranda's birthdays.

July 8 - Brenda's birthday (Brenda is my husband's sister. No, they aren't twins. They were born on the same date--not the same day. There are 6 years between them.)

July 8 - Colette's birthday (Colette is one of my good friends who has moved south to Arizona. She has her own blog that can be found at: http://www.lapagedecolette.blogspot.com/ (Happy belated birthday, Colette. Colette is the only person that I know that can have birthdays year after year and not age a year!)

July 9 - My parents' anniversary. (Usually we celebrate their anniversary at the same time as Harold and Miranda's birthdays but this year they had to travel two provinces away to attend a funeral at the time of their anniversary. We missed them at this year's barbecue celebration.)

  1. Wow !! A mention on a blog- thanks for the plug- I simply must update the material soon now. Thanks for the birthday wishes. I hope Harold had a good day. I spent mine on the beach jumping waves with Stinky, his parental units and his tio Corey. We had a blast and I am only minorly sunburned (not to hear corey go on about it); in fact I look downright tanned!!

  2. Congrats to one and all on your summer celebrations!

  3. My April would be much like your July--lots of birthdays and anniversaries. June is almost the same way but that is what you get when you have 5 siblings, their spouses and grandkids!

    Oh, one of my younger brothers just missed mine by one day so we were like your Harold and his sister--almost.

  4. sounds like you have a wonderful month of celebrations.

  5. He looks like he's carefully guarding the dessert there!

    Happy birthdays to everyone in July. :)
