It's that Birthday Time of the Year Again!

ELLIE:  Are you ready for the party, Mr. Waffles? There's going to be snacks and cake and maybe even some tissue paper! 

WAFFLES:  Snacks are good!

WAFFLES:  Oh, and lots and lots of people. Ski people, neighbors, and even Dr. Fern.

WAFFLES:  Wait, what?? Our VET is coming to Glogirly's birthday party??? 

ELLIE:  Yup!

WAFFLES:  No one cleared that with me.

ELLIE:  But she's bringing snacks and stuff–

WAFFLES:  Let's hope that's all she's bringing.

Glogirly 6.0

It was our girl's birthday last week and we threw a Summer Apres Ski Season Soire for her and her ski friends. This was a milestone birthday for her...she likes to say it's the 36th anniversary of her 24th birthday. But that requires a lot of math to figure out. 

Everyone had a wonderful time. There was lots of laughter, yummy food, and a big birthday cake!

Glgirly's ski friend Holly's birthday was the day before hers so it was a joint celebration. The only thing missing was SNOW. LOL!

The birthday girls, Glogirly and Holly.

A few of the party guests, at least the ones that were paying attention and joined in the group photo! That's our wonderful vet, Dr. Fern standing in-between Glogirly and Holly. 

Waffles is charming Glogirly's ski instructor, Lynne, and her husband. 

Some of Glogirly friends surprised her with the most wonderful gift. A custom ski trail sign! One of Glogirly's favorite trails at the local ski resort is a fun little run off the beaten path. It's towards the end of a run called La Belle. Since this little run doesn't officially have a name, she and her friends decided to call it Ellie's Belly. ...after our own sweet Ellie Belly, of course!

Gloman showered our girl with love and the most beautiful flowers on her special day. 

We're publishing a day early this week...Glogirly is heading off to southern Colorado on a backcountry hiking trip tomorrow. With LLAMAS!!! More to come on that soon...
