Coming of Age

Yesterday was the beginning of the celebration for Aisling's 21st birthday. She will turn 21 on Thursday June 3rd. However, we won't be together then, so we're celebrating now. See the beautiful cake I spent hours making....... well someone at Costco did.
After the traditional rendition of "Happy Birthday". Aisling proceeded to blow out her candles. See the little puff of smoke by her hair on her left side?
That smoke was the precursor to the flames that immediately followed. Yes her hair did indeed catch on fire. She ended up having to cut off about 1" of her singed hair and then the equal amount on the other side.
That sort of put a damper on things......LOL (she didn't think it was LOL).
She opened her birthday presents today. It was fun to have treats and open them with Aunt Alice and Uncle Ron along with grandma, Laurence and I.


  1. The hair spray will get ya, lol. Happy (almost) Birthday Aisling!

  2. Hi Aisling!!! Happy Birthday. How nice to get a new hairdo for your birthday!!

  3. Oh, I'm so sorry your hair caught on fire! Remind me to tell you about the time my hair caught on fire (on my wedding night!) It's always more funny looking back. :)


I LOVE comments!! They make me smile! Thanks!!
