A Birthday Gift Away!



Hello everyone! Tomorrow is a big day for me...drum roll please...my half century birthday! Fifty!?! It's hard for me to even wrap my mind around the fact that I've been alive for 50 years... it seems such an impossibly short time since I was small enough to ride on my father's back, play house in a big chair (with my sister and two brothers!), and hide in the tall grass of the field behind our house. And I'm sure it was just a moment ago that my children were sweet little babies and I was a new and fairly terrified young mother. Now they're young men, still sweet but so grown up! Of course it seems that way to my parents too, I was talking to my Dad on the phone yesterday and he seemed astonished that I had the audacity to get this old! :) I guess in his mind I'll always be his little baby girl with the bow scotch taped to her head.

My First Birthday



So since it's a nice, round, and rather eventful birthday, I felt that I wanted to share my big day with my friends online. To this end I've decided to have another gift away and hold a drawing for the little birthday pixie at the top of this post. She's holding cake of course...what's a birthday without a bit of cake?



All you have to do to enter is simply respond in the comments section of this post and you're in...easy peasy! If you are a fan of The Fairies' Nest on Facebook you can leave a comment there as well and be entered twice...if you're not a fan... and why is that?!...you can become one by clicking on the fan button at the top right side of the page. Make sure that you leave some way to get in touch if you don't have a blogger or Facebook profile! I'll throw all the names in a hat and have a drawing on October 1st. That's my youngest's birthday so it seems fitting...maybe I'll even let him pick!

Good luck everyone!

  8. A BIG Happy Birthday to you Cynthia! I've just had mine, too. (You get used to the being-in-your-fifties thing after a few years - I've just had a birthday too - I'm beginning to stare down sixty - eeek! - now that's SCARY!) Still a few years to get used to the idea, however.

  30. It doesn't seem like it's been all that long at all, since those days of the big chair house, the tunnels in the long grass, and the four bratty children - esp. since some of those children are still so bratty!
    Besides, we simply don't get old in this family, didn't you know that?
    Much love, yer sis
