Today is our oldest daughter, Suzette's birthday. Here she is on her 1st birthday!!!
Happy Birthday Daughter #1!!!!!

BUT December is also the birth month of 3 others in our family. Daughter Jacque, who is only 1 year and 9 days younger than Suzette, the 22nd, Her daughter, and our first granddaughter, Jessica is the 23rd and Mine is the 25th.

SO rather than celebrating them each separately with a family doing, as usual, we decided this year to have a "girl's day out celebration". Granddaughter, Oksana, was suppose to join us but ended up having a Leadership drill at school and had to cancel. We invited our son Marc's friend, Deann, to join us for the fun.
We began by meeting at 11 a.m. at a nail salon for either a manicure or pedicure

These three, Suzette, Deann & Jacque went for the pedicure. Do you think Jacque is relaxed?!!!!

Granddaughter Jessica and I opted for the manicure.
Next it was to Ol*ive Gar*den for soup & salad.

I had little monogram notes for each of my girls just as a little "something".
After a fun lunch it was off for some Christmas shopping!!!!
It was a great, and different way for us to celebrate during our always too busy month of December. With Mickey & Dave's birthdays both being on November 24th we have 6 birthdays and it gets a little busy and hectic.
Any day spent with my family is always a special day to me.

Susan, what a wonderful way to celebrate the birthdays of so many that you love, and that love you. (If only Danny and I could've been there!) : ) We love you, and we appreciate who you are and how God has put you together in such a way that soooo many people are blessed. We add our hugs and love to the bunch!

She does look relaxed. Spa days are so fun. I'm glad you girls took the time to get away and pamper yourselves for your birthdays.
My moms Bday is this month and mine is 10 days after Christmas.

Happy Birthday!

What a lovely idea!!! I would have gone for the manicure too, and your lunch sounds great. Love their salads!
I think time with family is one of the Lord's most precious gifts to us.
Happy Birthday everyone!

A mani/pedi, followed by lunch out, is my kind of birthday celebration.

Happy Birthday to all of you.
