Happy Birthday Lily!

Elizabeth Patricia O'Callaghan born in Dublin Ireland celebrates her birthday this day March 16, 2010 with friends and family in Dayton, Ohio.
Driving into St. Leonards this morning Lily said, 

"Oh I am going here again?  They are going to think I am a nut.  Here she comes again.  She must be hard up.  I am not coming back here for at least 2 weeks."

"But Mom," I said. "Today they are going to love to see you because we are bringing chocolate chip cookie cake for everyone for your birthday."   She thought that was a great idea!

A beautiful purse from the good folks at St. Leonards.  Perfect for our upcoming cruise!

 Early this evening my friend and running partner Leigh Ann showed up at the door with a darling birthday present for Lily.  Surprise!

Can't have a birthday dinner for an Irish lass the night before St. Paddy's Day without corn beef and cabbage followed by mint chocolate cake!

Our wonderful neighbor Anne helped us top off the celebration with a little Bailey's Irish Cream.
Yum!  She also brought Lily a beautiful jewelry box to put in her room.

Everybody had a great time especially Lily!
P. S.  Judy what a coincidence?? our mom's birthdays are so close.  Happy St. Paddy's Day!


  1. Happy Happy Birthday Ms. Lily!! I love all the pictures but especially the last one. She had fun! Kerry it is a special little blessing to know our mother's birthdays are so close and that your heart and energy is also to love and care for your mother. Know that you and your family are in my prayers (safety,fun, and synapses to click) as you venture south.
    And - Happy St. Paddy's Day to you!

  2. Happy Birthday Lily! Have a wonderful trip and travel safely...

  3. HI Kerry,

    Love, Lynn
