Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments Ready for the start of another month. Cleaning up and getting ready for Our next birthday month, April, starts out with Easter so hoping everyone has a good day. I will put up the list in a few minutes..
I have refreshed the ice tea and kind sin the icebox as well as the lemonade and milk. I have put the coffee pots and the pots for hot water for tea on a timer so they should be ready when you all come thru.

I am putting daffodils in the vases on the tables with yellow tablecloths with flowers on the edges.

You are such a cheerful group! I'm a little bummed because we're supposed to be buried in snow tomorrow. I like snow BUT NOT IN APRIL!
And April always was a big month for birthdays in my family. But sadly both my dh and I have lost brothers who had back to back birthdays April 3 and 4th.
I guess I'm a bit stressed over the snow. SORRY!

message 16: by Dorothy (new)

Dorothy Clark | 1393 comments Hi Melinda! I just dropped by to see if you needed any help with the preparations for Cheryl's birthday. If you need an extra pair of hands while your hanging banners, or setting tables, just let me know. I've been climbing ladders all my life. :-)

If you're good, I'll just concentrate on making a delicious recipe I found in a magazine to bring to the party on the 14th.

Dorothy,
A little help is appreciated as we have a birthdays Saturday and Sunday. If you could help with balloons and the tables while I get the banners hung. I can not wait to try whatever you are baking. I am hanging banners of blue, yellow and pink for our three birthdays this weekend.

Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments I hope all of you have good weather this weekend . They are saying that we will have bad weather Saturday. I am going to do Saturday and Sunday's birthdays so if the internet goes out it will be up.
Dorothy is getting the balloons placed. The balloons are blue, yellow and pink but she also has stripes and stars on the balloons. They are cute.
Dorothy,
Thank you for putting the tablecloths on. I have decided to use our plates that are either yellow, blue or pink so we continue the Spring theme colors. I have refreshed all of the drinks. The coffee pots are on a timer and have a warming try their. Hot water is there as well. The ice tea is in the ice box, all of the different types. There is water in the ice box if you want real cold water . A pitcher of water is out.

I am putting a Blueberry pie that has a graham cracker crust than the first layer is a mixture of cream cheese sugar and cool whip than a blueberry puree that has been cooked and strains. I will put cool whip out so you can add it if you want.

message 35: by Dorothy (new)

Dorothy Clark | 1393 comments Happy belated birthday to all the ladies, Gee, Jennifer, Lauri K. and Lenora. Sorry I couldn't get here in time. We are having a very strange April--weather wise. I think 41 is our high for the month so far. And it snows an inch or so every day. The storms in the upper atmosphere are playing havoc with the internet.

I have brought some caramel brownies with vanilla bean ice cream by way of apology.
