We're Havin' a Birthday...

Grab a party hat...
A pretty drink...

We're having a cupcake party for Jo's birthday...
lots and lots of cupcakes...

Yup, more...

Happy Birthday Jo "Margaret!"

Masculine one for the boys and tougher women...

A birthday bouquet for the pretty lady...

And of course, pretty drinks...

And more...

A few pints for the hardy souls (sorry, the pretty lady doesn't come attached to the Guiness)...

Wine and art as well...

Dig in, chow down...

and on...

and on. That's Aussie stuff above...yummy...

Well of course animal companions are invited...
So are the kids...
And girlfriends...whoops, just accidently deleted the photo and don't have the skill to get it back, but don't worry, cuz we still have...

The boys...

Entertainment. Tell me about it. I imported this all the way from Vienna. Yup, the Waltz....I'm second from the left or still think I am...

And Helen's orchestra will be providing additonal entertainment. She's third row back, fifth from right...Helen's the one holding the disco ball...

We will also have ballroom dancing...

When the night is over, this Pavlova is for you, Helen and Mark to share over a nice hot cup of tea. Whoops, couldn't resist a slice!

Much love dear friend and Happy Birthday from all of us

Let's smack one down together! I feel sugar high. Woops, also feel sorta loopy from those pretty drinks.

*drags her tired arse over to the bar, schlumps onto a bar stool and rests her weary head on the bar*

I'm comin' out so you better get the party started.....

'appy berfday Jo!

and Suz? "She's third row back, fifth from right...Helen's the one holding the disco ball..."

That was my first straight from the gut laugh of the day, thanks!

Queen Goob said...

Damn Suz, I was really fellin' the love at my place.


LMAO! HUGS!

Suzanne said...

Queen Goob,

Barely got back here before you commented. Oh, and Helen, she's the kid from Heaven. I'm adopting. Jo and Mark have no idea Helen's my child! Helen, welcome to America.

Suzanne said...

Joyful Jo said...

Oh wow, what a party!!
The cup cakes look delicious. Hey what a coincidence with the 'happy birthday Margaret' cup cake 'cause my middle name is Margaret.

The can of coffee in the groceries pic is the very same coffee that i buy!!
Uncle Toby's Oats (what you call, grits) is Mark's favorite cereal.

Suze you must have some psychic powers. spooky!!

I'll come visit you all and have some of those pretty coloured drinks and maybe not think about how old i am.

just bob said...

Good job Suzanne.

Suzanne said...

Jo, that's too funny because when I saw Margaret I felt odd. Like I knew something. Guess I did!!! Is life too funny or what?

Honey, you just sit right down and we'll get you a pretty drink. No work for you today, just joy. We want you to have a happy birthday with no worries and apparently with lots and lots of pink! Wow, that's a lot of pink! Ahhhhhhhhh, who cares. Enjoy the day. With the sugar high you're going to have, you'll never notice!

Love you honey,
Suze XO

Suzanne said...

Just Bob,

Dear Suzanne,

Wow! What a 'swell-egant, elegant party' this is! Thank you my dear for this wonderful tribute to Josephine's Birthday! I really like all the photos that you downloaded, especially the one of the two cats with the messy birthday cake.
We are so blessed to have you as a dear friend in this blogosphere.

Once again, thank you so very much.

Love,
Mark. XO XO XO

Random Chick said...

I'm fashionably late...well, maybe not fashionably. I'm wearing a tshirt and sweats. Is that okay?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO!!!!

Wow, Suzanne! You went all out! Can I still waltz in sweat pants?

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday Dear Jo!
Happy Birthday to you!

Suzanne said...

Hi Mark,

You're more than welcome. I had a blast. I can't believe how many gorgeous photos are in my computer. Seriously. Makes me think of your cartoon with the guy hugging the computer. I just hope Josephine Margaret had a beautiful birthday and didn't get to loopy.

I'm grateful for all of you and thank you for appreciating me. It means the world to me. I wouldn't change a thing about our little blogosphere, but honey, I would suggest you get a new pair of glasses or lay off the guiness! That's a cat and a dog. And yes, that photo cracked me up. So glad you enjoyed it.

Love to you my dear friend and thanks,
Suze XO

Suzanne said...

RC,

You look adorable and of course you can waltz in sweat pants, just don't step on my pretty white dress with your sneakers. And honey, we never care how late you are, just that you show up.
XO

Kookaburra said...

Hi Suze,

Yeah, you're right it was a cat and a DOG. I will go get me some new bifocals.

Thanks for pointing that out.

M.
p.s. BTW it is 6:45am, Friday here.
i gotta get ready for work

Gig said...

Happy Birthday Jo!!

I am sorry that I am late getting here, but I am ready for more than one cupcake...and a drink or two!!
It will be hard to decide which cupcake to have though...may take a while to decide, so I will drink for now,lol.
I am glad you are enjoying your nintendo DS, my daughter and little gig love theirs.

Suze, you did an AWESOME JOB as usual!!! What a great party, well I think I will go check out the music, come join me on the Macy sofa...

xoxo

Suzanne said...

Hi Giggie Poo...let me pour you a pretty pink thing. No, I don't know what's in it. I'm not a drink mixer. I just read the instructions and go with the flow. Severus said "Whip it!" So that's what I'm doing. I whiped it and it looks really, really pretty. Good luck! I'm over on the sofa...meet you there.

XO

Robyn said...

Ok...well everyone knows that I was at work and just got home! Happy Birthday JO! I see that Suze did it up...I will take a bite and a sip of some pretty drink and then off to bed for me! I am beat to a pulp...yep, what can I say they (work) are trying to kill me off!
Again Jo! Happy Happy Birthday! I hope you the best super duper day!
Hugs,
Robyn
