Birthday celebration at Cactus Canyon!

Here it is the middle of October, my how time flies.   This past Saturday night, Sallie  (one of my BFF's) and I celebrated our birthdays at the Cactus Canyon.  Since our birthdays are just a week apart, we have been celebrating together for the last ten years and oh, what  good memories we have made! We have a great group of friends and always have so much fun during our birthday get-togethers!
Sallie and Shawn

We met this fantastic group of friends through dancing and each month we celebrate birthdays. Alice, our resident baker, always makes a yummy sweet delight!

We always have such a good time when we are out and you never know who will be dancing on the Tables!

Sallie and Amber

This year it was Sallie and Amber, her granddaughter, who got up on the box to dance. A few years ago Alice and I tried to get  on a table but we were asked to get down...guess they were afraid we would hurt ourselves! I do not think they had the box at that time! Back in the day, I wanted to be a Go GO Girl!

 I tried to get pictures of my friends dancing but, because of the lighting, I had to delete most of the ones I took.

Phil and Alice
I did not get a picture of everyone. Debbie and Jerry had to leave before I remembered to get the camera out of my bag. The picture of Chad, Karen's handsome Hubby, was too dark. Also, Kareen and Mike left early. Jeff is in a picture dancing with Ro but I did not do a great job on that one!

I want to thank everyone for making this another wonderful Birthday Celebration!  To my Hubby, Bill, thanks for putting up with my craziness for another year.
To Sallie, I so enjoy celebrating our birthdays George, the four of us have spent a lot of good times together!
Then Gary and Alice moved here from Ca. gosh, how many years ago, and made a perfect  fit to our group.
Debbie and Jerry, the new grandparents of TWINS, we need to get together more often. Glad to see you out and thanks for the cute bag and yummy cookies!
To Ro, my wild dance partner..well what can I say. George, thanks for the dance!
Phil, you are a very special part of our group and always will be.
Chad and Karen, the youngsters,  we are so happy that you like to spend time with us.. you keep us young!
Carol, it has been so much fun getting to know you.
Mike and Kareen, we have shared so many good times and look forward to many more. Kareen, get that foot healed!
Jeff, thanks for the dances and for taking the picture for FB.
