Birthday Celebration

The birthday celebration went really well. The house was decorated to the hilt for the big birthdays.
Tanya had sent several hangings which I put throughout the house. This one is the Happy Family one.

My sister had some Japanese lanterns, with lights. And I found some bigger lanterns without lights. My sister also made banners for each of the birthday celebrants. Everything was beautiful - people even took pictures of the decorations. The shelf in the corner has miniature dollhouse furniture.

Tanya even sent presents for my daughter. She loved everything. I especially liked being able to nonchalantly say that I hada friend in Japan. Doesn't everyone? There were pretty papers, these great socks, and even fabric for me, among other things. Thank you Tanya, for everything. I am going to use photos of these things for her slide show.

Sounds like your DVD project turned into a real ordeal. Having to do it twice was bad enough, but to lose it again before the last one was burned???? Grrrrr. What you needed was DVD Decrypter to put a copy of one of your finished disks back on the computer then DVD Shrink to put it in a form to burn and play. They are free but I don't know if you can still find them on the Internet....Decrypter especially had the movie people's panties in a twist. Can't let people have a program that might let them back up their DVDs, can we? I treasure my Decrypter & Shrink both and guard them carefully.

I'm glad you could make use of the hangings. It looks like you had a fun evening! I don't know how much use one gets out of the tabi socks but they are cute. Much love to both of you.
