A Birthday Celebration....80 years in the making!!

It is not everyday someone has a Birthday to celebrate their 80th year. Today is my Aunt LaVoice's 80th Birthday.

I tried to be sneaky and post last week, and then delete the post requesting your assistance in the Birthday celebration. I am so thankful at the response I received and your cards and Birthday wishes started arriving last week! As of Saturday, 35 cards had arrived....I know by the end of today, I am going to safely anticipate at least 80 well wishes!! Thanks guys, you are true blogging friends. I knew I could count on all of you!

Please stop by Thoughts From Meme's Corner and wish LaVoice a very Happy 80th Birthday today....I can not wait for her to blog about her gifts and cards she received for this special birthday...many were inspired with the "new blogger" in mind!


  1. I'm on my way to wish her a very Happy Birthday...again!:)

  2. Aw it was so fun to put a card in the mail to her.

    Happy Birthday LaVoice! :)

  3. I sent the e-card, so if she doesn't know how to open it, please help her and I HOPE it brings a chuckle of joy to both of you.

  4. I am so glad for her! Here's to all of us to hopefully make it to 80!

  5. Such a fun surprise - and a great idea! I visited her blog to wish a special wish today - what a neat lady!

  6. She's fortunate to have such a thoughtful niece!

  7. Aww...thank you Sally. I have to admit..I am the one who feels fortunate to have her! She is the best!!

  8. Suzanne,

    Thank you so much for introducing Mother to the world of blogging and for being such a wonderful niece to her. You've exposed her to a new world of friends and helped her do something that will continue to keep her young.

    Love you,


  9. I hope my card got there on time. If not, it will help to extend the celebration on through the week!

  10. Did she figure out how we all got her mailing address yet???

  11. Oh, yep....the first bloggie card gave me away!!! That is ok, she was blaming my mother for all the cards and it was me all along....it was so funny!!

  12. Going to visit her right now. Sorry I didn't get a card in the mail in time. Maybe I can do an e-card.

  13. I'm so sorry I forgot to send a card, I'm going there to say Happy Birthday now, I am already a follower.

  14. Happy Birthday to your Aunt!! 80 is great!
    I know it will feel like my birthday when the awesome gifts that I won from your giveaway arrive at my front door!!! I am checking my mailbox everyday.
    Deb :)
